WASHINGTON (RNS) Abortion remains a delicate topic for Republicans after a tough 2012 election season, when high-profile missteps caused the GOP to lose two Senate contests.

    Fleischer: “Even this comes too close after the two previous problems. Stop anything on this topic that even comes close to being foolish and out of touch.”

    Notice he did not say revise your misogynistic position. Just change the way you say it, so we can shove it down their throats when we vote.

    I hope the Republican party moves even further to the right with their obnoxious religious certainties for everybody. That way they just make themselves into a laughingstock and fail miserably.
