Missouri: Both Akin and Romney regain footing

Liberal news outlet Slate has noticed with disbelief that Missouri Republican pro-life U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin “has crept back into the Missouri Senate race,” which three polls have now concluded.

A Family Research Council poll conducted August 27-28 found Akin had pulled ahead of Democrat pro-abortion incumbent Claire McCaskill 45-42% after a precipitous drop following an unfortunate explanation for his rape/incest exception to abortion.

But that was our side. When Democrat pollster Public Policy Polling found in a flash poll on August 20, the day after Akin made his infamous remark, that Akin still held a slight 44-43% lead, PPP was accused by his side of skewing the results “to ensure Akin stays in, so that he can get pummeled in November.”

But PPP’s second poll, conducted August 28 and 29, had nearly the same findings: McCaskill ahead by only a hair, 44-43%. According to Poll Tracker, here is how the race stands. Click to enlarge…

Cardinal Dolan accents Life and religious freedom more at DNC than RNC

Cardinal Dolan must have thought Democrats needed more prayer cover than Republicans. His closing prayer at the Republican National Convention was 544 words, while at the Democratic National Convention it was 700 words. (Text of both here.)

Dolan began his prayer at both conventions with either an intentional or unintentional slight of Islam: “Almighty God, father of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Jesus…” but not Ishmael, Abraham’s firstborn son by his wife’s maidservant Hagar, considered Muhammad’s ancestor.

Not many people likely noticed that, but I did, and I’m sure Muslims in the room fumed. (Photo right is of a prayer gathering of 300 Muslims in Charlotte before the launch of the DNC.)

In other words, Cardinal Dolan made sure everyone in the audience – and God – knew he was praying not to some ambiguous deity, of which so many are worshiped in the Democratic Party, particularly earth. It was a quiet, brilliant stroke of loyalty and defiance, IMO.

But moving on.

Many words in both prayers were similar, if not identical.

When even MSM thinks the Democratic Convention is an abortion-palooza, you know it’s bad

When even liberals and the mainstream media think the Democratic National Convention has turned into an abortion-palooza, it must really be blatant.

Apparently even ideologically aligned reporters have their breaking point on abortion promotion. To wit…

Pro-abortion New York Times columnist David Brooks, after Day 1:

Breaking: Ad exposing Obama on infanticide support to air during his speech tonight

Wow. The Susan B. Anthony List has just announced that its ad calling out Barack Obama for his opposition as state senator to the Illinois Born Alive Infants Protect Act will air tonight during the time frame of his acceptance speech for renomination as president at the Democratic National Convention.

The ad, featuring abortion survivor Melissa Ohden, will run on all major networks in the Charlotte, North Carolina, media market, where the convention is being held, at a cost of $42,000.

Here, again, is that ad…

Abortion advocates “front and center” at Democratic National Convention

Included in the speaker’s list for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte are Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards, NARAL Pro-Choice America’s Nancy Keenan, and Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University Law student who has become the new face of the war on birth control.

Putting reproductive rights luminaries front and center at the convention could be seen by many activists as a signal that this year politicians will be forced to be honest about their true intentions when it comes to a woman’s right to control her reproductive choices.
