Remember that time someone called me "post-abortive"?

You may or may not remember this, but about a million years ago I posted something about how I didn't really like looking at ultrasound pictures of other people's unborn babies because it reminded me too much of abortion protesters' signs. And then a wack job came on my blog and called me "post-abortive." Y'all remember that?

Well, apparently this level of discourse has hit the presidential election. National Review says that the reason we liberal wimmens don't like Sarah Palin is because we, and all of us who agree with us, are "post-abortive". Or suffering from collective guilt from knowing those who are post-abortive. I'm getting dizzy from this line of logic.

I swear, this election is boiling my brain.

I read the original article at National Review a number of times, but I couldn't quite parse the nuttiness. I prefer Wonkette's synopsis ever so much more. Go read more about your collective guilt at Wonkette.

Well, hell. I guess I was wrong all this time and it's not just that we think gommint has no business butting into this sorta personal pain...turns out we're PRO-abortion after all.

You've missed the whole (brilliant) point of Wonkette: they read it so you don't have to. Clicking through to the source material is hazardous to your health, dear.

I clicked through. I know I shouldn't have. Written by the co-founder of "a post-abortion healing ministry of Priests for Life." Which just sounds fun but not exactly the way I'd want to spend a weekend.

Why have I not heard of Wonkette before??
