NARAL vs. …Nancy Pelosi?

Oh, this should be entertaining.  Apparently, NARAL is upset that Nancy Pelosi (who is technically, supposedly, theoretically supposed to be some sort of, well, Roman Catholic) said “I don’t believe in abortion on demand” and “I don’t believe that abortion is a form of birth control or contraception” – while still suggesting that Republican men are some sort of knuckle-dragging Neanderthals yadda yadda yadda, mind you.  Alas for the House Minority Leader, such doubleplusungood crimespeaks are dangerous agitprop and virulent memetic contagions that must be stamped out through a healthy dose of self-criticism and public abasement.

Seriously, this is what they said:

“The Leader should stop using twisted GOP talking points about abortion and birth control,” NARAL senior vice president for campaigns and strategy Sasha Bruce said.

…Now, I understand that ‘House Minority Leader’ is a bit of a mouthful.  But it does come across as just a touch Stasi-like to start using the shortened title ‘Leader’ when you’re already making statements that are noteworthy mostly for the drops of spittle sprayed per word.  People might think that you’re being a little, well, extreme or something.

Just saying.
