We Got Stupaked

Kathleen Parker has a devastating column over at the Chicago Tribune this morning about the latest figure in Washington to earn a verb with his name: Bart Stupak.  Comparing his stand to that of William Wallace at Stirling, she then likens him to the Scottish nobles who abandoned Wallace at Falkirk. Killer lines:

After the Sunday vote, a group of Democrats, including Stupak, gathered in a pub to celebrate. In a biblical moment, New York Rep. Anthony Weiner was spotted planting a big kiss on Stupak's cheek.
To a Catholic man well versed in the Gospel, this is not a comforting gesture.

This could prove to be one of the great victories for the pro-abortion lobby in America.  All it will take now is for NARAL or ACLU or some-such organization to march a pregnant young woman into a clinic and demand an abortion.  When the young woman is refused, because of Obama's Executive Order, they will sue and the Supreme Court will have to uphold the Constitutional principal that Federal Law trumps Executive Orders on policy.  The protections of the Hyde Amendment will be gone forever.

Mind you, I never thought Stupak would hold anyway.  Some of the radio wags have played the clip from last October of him saying he would fold like a lawn chair and vote for the bill even if anti-abortion language was excluded.  He simply milked it as long as he possibly could, enjoying his "I'm Really Important" Andy Warhol moment.  The did what every good Democrat in Washington does now, voted for the party above morality, principle, loyalty or basic decency.
