Democrats in disarray over Dobbs


 (My new American Thinker post)

The post-Roe world is not turning out the way that many Democrats had planned.  It's fair to say that the Democrats thought that there'd be a tsunami against the GOP over Dobbs.  In other words, the voters would punish the GOP for taking their "rights" away.  In fact, it's the Democrats who can't explain their position. Why?  Because their views on abortion are so radical and hard to sell.  You know you're trouble when you are mentioned in the same sentence as North Korea and we are talking about abortion, not missiles.

This is from Stephen L. Miller:    

Roe acted as a warm duvet over the operational procedures of abortion. 

It allowed Democrats to stand by a "pro-choice" talking point without having to defend it to a moderate electorate still not comfortable with a party willing to celebrate abortion. 

With Roe lifted, Democrats now have to go about the act of actually selling abortion by campaigning on it at state levels. 

For the first time in 50 years, national office seekers will have to specify their positions. 

Democrats will be forced either to stand firm on an unpopular extreme or moderate their positions and anger their base further. 

As of now, they cannot decide, and they are unprepared.

The pundits are also saying that the base is disenchanted because the White House was slow in responding thanks to the President being too old.   

Maybe so, but the Roe supporters face two more problems:

First, candidates will have to answer a very simple question.  Are you comfortable turning off the baby's heartbeat?  Abstract answers, like "it's a woman's body or it's between the woman and her doctor, are no longer possible."  We're finally talking about the baby!

Second, Roe's supporters will have to bring their game to the states' legislatures. One side will scream and the other will vote for abortion restrictions. They've grown so used to having judges give them what they want that they don't really know how to compromise or persuade people who don't watch CNN.

So let the debate begin -- because we will win.

Happy # 77 Bill Melton

We say happy birthday to Bill Melton who was born in Mississippi on this day in 1945.

Question:  What sluggers won AL HR titles in the 1970's?  

The answer is Frank Howard, Dick Allen (twice), Reggie Jackson (twice), George Scott, Graig Nettles, Jim Rice (twice), Gorman Thomas and Bill Melton.

Wonder how many of you named Bill Melton of the Chicago White Sox?

Bill Melton broke with the White Sox in 1968 and showed some power with 23 HR & 85 RBI in second year.  He led the AL in HR in 1971 with 33 HR.

His numbers fell off after that and he retired with 160 HR & 591 RBI.    Melton played third for most of his career.

Happy # 82 Ringo Starr


Happy birthday to Ringo Starr (Richard Starkey) who turned a year older today.  Ringo is one of the two surviving members of what we used to call “The Fab Four“.
Ringo will probably go down in history as one of the luckiest men ever born.  Talk about “being in the right place at the right time” or winning the biggest lottery of all time.
In the fall of 1962, The Beatles, and new producer George Martin, walked into a studio to record their first single.  Martin settled on “Love me do,” a Lennon-McCartney tune, and it did reach the top 20 in the UK.  It did not chart in the US.  The B-side was “P.S. I love you”, one of their most underrated songs!
The rest of the story, as Paul Harvey used to say, is that Martin replaced drummer Pete Best, an original member of the band and lifelong friend from Liverpool.  Martin replaced Pete with Ringo. 
Pete Best was out.  Ringo Starr was in.   Pete ended up with 9 to 5 job and sadly no one remembers his birthday.  Ringo has a big mansion and everyone remembers his birthday.
Within a year of the roster change, the Beatles had two # 1 songs in the UK:  “Please please me” and “She loves you”.   Eighteen months later, Ringo and his pals were on “The Ed Sullivan Show” and their songs dominated the U.S. charts.
In a few months, Ringo went from being a Liverpool drummer to playing behind John Lennon and Paul McCartney.
He had a great sense of humor and the media loved him.  Ringo had critical roles in the Beatles’ movies, such as his “ring” in “Help” and that funny walk to “This Boy: Ringo’s theme,” in “A Hard Day’s Night”.
Ringo did a couple of “lead vocals”, such as the # 1 song: “Yellow Submarine”.  However, his greatest contribution was being a professional drummer, exactly what George Martin had in mind back then. 
We remember Ringo’s birthday and I hope that he is doing well.
