Eileen McNamara slams former Boston mayor and former Vatican ambassador Ray Flynn for criticizing John Kerry for being pro-abortion even though he served as ambassador for the pro-abortion Bill Clinton. But then McNamara goes further to savage John Kerry for trying to have it both ways on abortion. She mocks his attempt to appeal to pro-lifers with his “personally opposed, but ...”
Evidently, it is no longer enough to just tolerate abortion, but now you must be a wholehearted proponent of it or you will be thrown under the bus by your liberal confreres. What she does to Flynn is nothing compared to what she does to Kerry.
Of course, part of the problem for Eileen is that all this pro-life stuff comes out as part of an expression of ... ick ... religion! “Maybe at tonight’s debate the candidates could focus less on their piety and more on their plans for the future.” Yeah, keep that embarrassing religion and values stuff in the Sunday box where it belongs!
