I am embarrassed, deeply so, that Rick Santorum comes from the state in which I live. No matter that I'm not a Republican (far from it, as far from it as one can get). He is an embarrassment to the entire human race. If you ask me. :)

To the author of Shylock Holmes,

I found your post titled “Take That, Catholic Church!” thought provoking. Before reading your post I had yet to consider the implications of Obama’s birth control mandate covering the Catholic Church will have on the upcoming elections. As you state, not many Catholics do vote Democratic, which makes me wonder if Obama is truly trying to “curry favour with women’s groups”.

I do find the timing of the president’s emphasis of this mandate to be confusing and I think it could be detrimental to his possible re-election.

As someone who does not identify as a conservative, I have to agree that this mandate could be the most current leading contribution to the Republican Get Out the Vote effort.

I thought you might find the following clip interesting. I hope you will embed it on your blog.

The clip does a great job of concisely sourcing and compiling news reports to which emphasize the scope and context the content is being reported on. Newsy synthesizes and analyzes news into neutral comprehensive video clips showing a variety of outlooks on the same topic.

Maybe in the future we can swap blogroll links or widgets.

Thank you for your input, time and consideration,
