Am I to understand...

that in last night's senatorial debate, Citizen Scott Brown (GOP candidate for Teddy Kennedy's vacant seat) actually made the argument that the only women in the Commonwealth who ought to have access to the "morning after pill" on an emergency basis are his own two daughters?
Everyone else can go stuff it sez Beefcake Scott, but Ayla and Whozis to the top of the line (hypothetically speaking)?
Well, inadvertently Brown has touched on the sheer narcissism that colors the abortion debate. By that Humble Elias means that some of the most die hard anti-abortionists will still qualify their own opposition in their own minds and in their own lives.
They can't rule out malign happenstance so it seems, Scott Brown least of all.
