Gingrich, Susan B Anthony, Romney, Cain, and Inanity

Limbaugh played back a portion of the "debate" wherein Gingrich asserted that it is unproductive to formulate policy problems as choices between extremes. The case at hand was illegal immigration and the CNN guy phrased it as "evict 20 million people OR make them all legal."

IOW, the setup question was pretty close to inane on its face, and accepting the inane premises leads one to inane conclusions.

I'll agree with Gingrich. (Mark the post.)

Anyhooooo, that is relevant to this new Brou-Ha-Ha.

Romney (and Cain) refused to sign a pro-life pledge from Susan B Anthony List.

The [Susan B. Anthony List] pledge also states that a candidate will, if elected president, nominate pro-life persons to “relevant Cabinet and Executive Branch positions, in particular the head of National Institutes of Health, the Department of Health & Human Services, and the Department of Justice.” Such a provision, Saul [Romney spokescritter] said, would restrict Romney’s ability to choose his Cabinet.

Frankly, SBA overstepped. Their demands are simply inane. It's one thing to ask a candidate to be "pro-life." It's another thing entirely to demand that their appointees fit into a particular mold as well.

Inane premise, inane results.

BTW, I am in no way a Romney supporter.
