even more embarrassing? or...hmm.

republicans love my hometown girl debra bartoshevich so much they arranged a press-conference in denver this morning so she (and others) could tell folks how "okay" it is (really!) that they've switched from hillary clinton to john mccain. all was going well when midway through the event, debra was asked if mccain's pro-life voting record was a problem for her. bartoshevich did waterford proud by saying:
"Going back to 1999, John McCain did an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle saying that overturning Roe v. Wade would not make any sense, because then women would have to have illegal abortions."
cue scooby-doo: arrrrrgh?!?

keep in mind, my fellow waterfordite (waterfordian?) was standing at a podium paid for by the republican national committee, with mccain flack carly fiorina standing close by.

was deb wrong about that interview? certainly not. in 1999 mccain did say he "would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade" because it would force "X number of women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations."

but what is mccain's position today?

John McCain believes Roe v. Wade is a flawed decision that must be overturned, and as president he will nominate judges who understand that courts should not be in the business of legislating from the bench.
listen. i know what you're thinking. poor debra. some hick from southeastern wisconsin. some dumb cheesehead.

well, i'm here to tell you – there are some pretty smart folks in wisconsin. lot's of 'em in waterford, wisconsin. my brothers live there. my dad. my dad's neighbor jack is pretty smart (anyone who can fit the phrase "tight as a cow's ass at fly time" into everyday conversation is okay by me.) people from waterford are actually pretty darn smart.

this is why i am now convinced that debra bartoshevich is a mole.
