Imagine This

Imagine if the Democratic YouTube debate had had a planted Republican conservative questioner. Peggy Noonan paints us a picture.

I will never forget that breathtaking moment when, in the CNN/YouTube debate earlier this fall, the woman from Ohio held up a picture and said, "Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Obama, Mr. Edwards, this is a human fetus. Given a few more months, it will be a baby you could hold in your arms. You all say you're 'for the children.' I would ask you to look America in the eye and tell us how you can support laws to end this life. Thank you."
They were momentarily nonplussed, then awkwardly struggled to answer, to regain lost high ground. One of them, John Edwards I think, finally criticizing the woman for being "manipulative," using "hot images" and indulging in "the politics of personal destruction." The woman then stood in the audience for her follow up. "I beg your pardon, but the literal politics of personal destruction--of destroying a person--is what you stand for."

Imagine the Democrat candidate's faces! No one ever confronts them this way on what is a serious issue in today's world. How can we stand for children if we allow them to be destroyed at a rate of 4000 a day? They support laws that takes the lives of our most precious gift, our children and no one in the media ever calls them on it. Ever.

Maybe it's time someone did.
