The serious issue here is the caption under the screen capture of Sawyer: Santorum in Oct interview: "Contraception is not OK."

Of course it is all BS but the 'rat's strategy against Santorum is already set: he is a crackpot religious extremist who wants to make War Against Women, take away their rights and their healthcare and their freedom of choice.

It is a fight we shouldn't have to fight, and wouldn't, if we didn't have a candidate who goes out of his way to raise personal agendas about what should be nonissues, into issues.

Mark my words, as long as Santorum is on the playing field we will be besieged with crap about "contraception" and "women's rights" and related rubbish, while the real issue, obama, surfs along untouched and unquestioned.

Bad idea. Very bad idea.

I agree totally. You know the first time I saw this issue come up? It wasn’t made a big deal of, and the consequences were much smaller, but when Alan Keyes ran against Barack Obama for the Senate in 2004, I saw Keyes holding forth on the virtues of the “rhythm method.” And I thought, as many people as he, or any candidate, might draw to himself on the abortion issue, he’ll lose just as many or more by adding in contraception.

I am not Catholic. I understand and respect the Catholic position on this. But there should not be even the faintest hint that anti-contraception should become part of public policy, except that Catholic organizations should be exempt from supporting practices that conflict with their religious teachings. I think most thinking people should be able to accept that idea without any fear that it is going to affect everyone. I’m taking for granted that there are still enough thinking people out there to make a difference, and not be led by the nose by demagoguery from either side.

These women weren’t going to vote for Santorum anyway.
