The Alternet article on the "abortion party" I referenced a couple of days ago has been picked up by some on the the "pro-choice" side who are getting the vapors (ohh! Sexist comment) that anyone could be so offended by the shindig. The Broadsheet, apparently a "The View"-type group blog on Salon.com (which doesn't drive anywhere close to the traffic that an Instalanche drives) comes to the consensus position that this article was written to make them look bad. The party idea is tacky, but this is all the more reason for publicly funded abortions to be part of Obamacare, they argue.
However, it's the comments that are truly worth reading -- and sadly amusing. The common theme throughout them is that the article is a fabrication to make pro-choicers look bad. There's no evidence for arriving at this conclusion -- one commenter went back through the author's other articles and he is who he appears to be, a pro-choice liberal -- other than the fact that it makes pro-choicers look bad.
Which is why that nutjob who killed Kansas abortionist George Tiller is really a pro-choicer -- he only wanted to make the pro-life movement look bad.
But the biggest issue over this whole thing is mentioned in only one comment:
Obviously, the birth control party must have been a disaster.
You'd think a 22-year-old college senior would be able to figure that out.
