Explain, Cain

Herb wants to have it both ways on abortion:

“Abortion should not be legal, that is clear. But if that family made a decision to break the law, that’s that family’s decision, that’s all I’m trying to say,” he said.

CNN’s Piers Morgan asked Cain Wednesday about his view on abortion in the case of rape. “It ultimately gets down to a choice that that family or that mother has to make. Not me as president, not some politician, not a bureaucrat. It gets down to that family. And whatever they decide, they decide. I shouldn’t have to tell them what decision to make for such a sensitive issue,” he said. In the same interview, he said he believes life begins at conception, and that he does not believe in abortion under any circumstances.

If you are dizzy from trying to understand that wad of gibberish, you are not alone. It is in no way clear that abortion shouldn’t be legal. He has stated he will use activist judges and whatever else the Presidential office will allow to overturn Roe. But then Cain wants to dial back his approach and say by default, it’s ok for people to seek an abortion if it is that persons’ choice.

I’m tired of trying to explain this guy. He’s an idiot, and I have no idea why he is so popular.

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.

  1. try to play the ideological comsmisar against other candidates like Herman Cain, as he did in his contemptuous drive-by reference to the pizza man’s abortion rhetoric as liberal during last weekend’s
