The ad the DCCC should not have pulled 

I've been doing campaign work pretty solid for the past week. Not reading much. Not blogging much.

Consequently, I missed a few things. This was one. It's the web ad the DCCC was running, then pulled because some wing nuts got their panties all in a knot. Seems they had a problem with the shot of the flag-draped coffins.

Funny how they never seem to have a problem with the reason we have those coffins.

Thanks to Craig at Random Musings for the link.


An unhealthy lack of truthiness 

Pregnancy centers misleading girls:
"Twenty of the 23 centers reached by the investigators (87 percent) provided false or misleading information about the health effects of abortion," California Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman said in a statement.

Waxman, the ranking Democrat on the committee, asked staff to check on pregnancy crisis centers, which were given $24 million in federal funding between 2001 and 2005.

Female staffers posed as pregnant 17-year-olds and called the 25 pregnancy resource centers that have received grants from the Compassion Capital Fund.

One center told a caller that an abortion would 'affect the milk developing in her breasts' and that the risk of breast cancer increased by as much as 80 percent after an abortion," Waxman's office said.
More faith-based science from the fact-free administration, I guess. Let us pray.
