No Sense of Irony Whatsoever

Today I saw a bumper sticker on a car, also sporting a Kerry/Edwards sticker, that said, “The Constitution is a shield, not a sword.” No little irony in that, coming from a (presumably) Democratic supporter of the erstwhile presidential candidate. Can anyone say, “Constitutional ‘right’ to abortion”?

Another good display of bumper stickers: a Kerry/Edwards sticker next to a Gore/Lieberman sticker. What’s next, a Clinton/Obama sticker? 0-3!

  1. I suppose that some women would view the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the constitution, in Roe v. Wade, as being a “shield” when it comes to their “right” to abortion. After all, it protects them when they decide to kill their baby. The problem, of course, is that one person’s shield is another person’s sword (the baby). And that is quite generally the case; when there’s a shield, there is almost always a sword, and vice-versa.

  2. You may be right democrat. You yourself may even be pro-life. But the reason generalizations are generalizations is that they have some truth behind them. And the Democratic Party is, for the most part, beholden to groups like NARAL, Planned Parenthood, etc. That’s why Democrats for Life is almost an oxymoron.
