Oh, Slap!

Rand Paul had a bad day. And he ended it in a very Rand Paul way.

...

3) Speaks with the Associated Press about abortion, declines (for some reason) to say where he draws the line on exceptions like rape, incest and life of the mother.

Of course, as a presidential candidate constantly followed by the media, Paul wasn't going to be able to keep avoiding the abortion question. But he had a plan. So at a media availability in which he was asked the abortion question again, he....

4) Challenged the Democratic National Committee to say where it comes down on abortion and declared he would answer the question after that.

Here's the video from Dave Weigel:


Well, Paul got what he wished for. Here's the response from Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.):

Here’s an answer. I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story. Now your turn, Senator Paul. ... And I’d appreciate it if you could respond without ’shushing’ me.

Points to Wasserman Schultz here for the "shushing" reference (Paul drew heat for shushing a female CNBC anchor in the clip linked above).

1. I'm not a big fan of DWS but that was beautifully done.

2. that was badly worded because government healthcare is twisted to mean

government funded abortions.

so, in the minds of conservatives the government IS involved.

3. How do government funded abortions mesh with the Hyde amendment, apart from

incest and rape?

4. go ask the fundies who are using it. I am not the one. I am all for government funded abortions. -

A woman's healthcare is totally between her and her Doctor with her having the last and final say.
A woman has the right to full autonomy of her body.

this is what DWS needed to say.

just my .02
