9. Any Ambitious Republican Politician Has To Be Anti-Abortion These Days

Any ambitious Republican politician who wants to move beyond some prosperous, secular country-club state representative's or state senator's district HAS to be anti-abortion if he or she wants to move on to bigger and better things, and he or she had better prepare to hop through the anti-abortion crowd's hoops on cue. The anti-abortion fanatics have not only made that point very clear in their polemics, they've done a very good job at enforcing that position in Republican primaries. Here in Texas, the last pro-choice Republican state senator got tanked this year by a Tea Party anti-abortion extremist.

This is very clear not only to us DU'ers and any politically-aware Democrat, it is also very clear to any politically active Republican. It's only the clueless and the lazy-@ss inattentive bozos who purport to write and edit the news who have failed to take note.

Mitt's ambitious. He's tailored his positions to the anti-abortion (and anti-contraceptive) crowd's ideological specifications. He'll be at least as anti-abortion as Dubya and probably more so.
