S.C. Dem chair: Palin primary qualification is she hasn't had an abortion

South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler sharply attacked Sarah Palin today, saying John McCain had chosen a running mate " whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”

Palin is an opponent of abortion rights and gave birth to her fifth child, Trig, earlier this year after finding out during her pregnancy that the baby had Down syndrome.

Fowler told my colleague Alex Burns in an interview that the selection of an opponent of abortion rights would not boost McCain among many women.

“Among Democratic women and even among independent women, I don’t think it helped him,” she said.

Told of McCain's boost in the new ABC/Washington Post among white women following the Palin pick, Fowler said: "Just anecdotally, I believe that those white women are Republican women anyway."

A staunch unwillingness to slaughter one's children is, indeed, a prerequisite for good political leadership.

I love this quote in its many manifestations: “Among Democratic women and even among independent women, I don’t think it helped him.”

This is becoming a mantra, despite the fact that I've heard several women, Democrat and Independent, call into a talk show and say differently. If callers into talk shows represent many more like-minded people in the radio audience, then there are more women changing sides than the Democrats like to admit.

I'm starting to believe that they are reciting this for their own psychological health.

I'm not sure what the point of this is. Regardless of their party affiliation, it's a simple fact that large numbers of women who were previously supporting Obama are now supporting McCain. What's the point of consoling oneself that they were (supposedly) Republicans?

Bear in mind that that the philosophical Mrs Fowler is the wife of the equally bright Dan Fowler, himself no slouch at the mindless and the vulgar.
Dan was one of two main bag men, Chris "Jowls" Dodd the other, for collection of various and sundry foreign bribes on behalf of Bill Clinton, up until 2008 one of the smartest politicians ever.
Dan knew a momentary shame for his role in the sell out of his country, it seems he's recovered. His wife would appear to be beyond even that, while adding substance to the phrase "invincible ignorance".

And this human wreckage passes for leadership in the Democratic Party.
