    Absolutely. The senior Bush was such an enthusiastic supporter of family planning when he was in Congress that his nickname among his colleagues was "Rubbers". :p

    Am I the only one who's waiting with baited breath to hear the actual tapes or are we, like the DUmmies, going to rely on the ever truthful NYTimes?

    There's no need to wait with bated breath (not "baited" unless your breath does smell like bait). If you had bothered to read the article you would have seen how to listen to the tapes.

    True that. I still am a supporter of abortion rights, mostly because I think the government needs to keep out of my body. But the trend is to have the government speculum up so many body orifices these days, not to mention in your wallet 24/7. This is why, although I believe health care in this country really sucks, I don't really want government run health care either. I want my privacy back.

    “There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,”
    He was right. It probably would've saved your grandchildren a few trillion dollars.

    So, you haven't even made an effort to listen to the tapes, even though you asked. Figures.

    What on earth does "I'll art" mean?

    The way y'all are always rambling on about how hold we are, I would think PMS wouldn't be an issue anymore.
