"Pro-life Progressive?? Who, me??"
Today at NRO, Timothy Carney tells the story of Dennis Kucinich, another pro-life Democrat (a self-proclaimed progressive, in fact) who switched sides on the abortion issue to curry political favor. This time, it came as a result of an article in a May, 2002 issue of The Nation. Carney aptly concludes the article:
"Apparently, Kucinich conceded that if he were to lead the Left (possibly one day, he hopes, as their presidential contender), he must get on board with the abortionists. The editors of The Nation surely are proud that they exposed Kucinich as a man who sticks to his faith — and that they remedied that situation promptly."
