Over at Huffington Post, Christina Page has delved further into the coded messages used by the GOP Presidential candidates, this time decoding their thoughts on birth control:

To layman's ears, it all sounded pretty standard: He wants to overturn Roe v Wade... But for those trained to hear the subtleties, Romney was admitting to his anti-abortion sweethearts something more. He inferred an opposition to the birth control pill and a willingness to join in their efforts to scale back access to contraception.

SEE? SEE? This isn't just about Romney, she decodes comments from several GOP candidates. It's not just me, Christina Page (already my hero for her fabulous book) gets it too:

To the anti-abortion movement contraception is the ultimate corruptor. This year the unspoken rule for candidates who want to go all the way with anti-abortion groups is that they must offer proof they're anti-contraception too.

This is their twisted sense of logic. The fundies are against abortion AND they're against the means to prevent abortion. The same way they're against anyone telling them how to live/ think/ speak, AND they're against other people living/ thinking/ speaking as they choose. And somehow, GOP candidates across the country are buying this crap and trying their damnedest to force it upon the rest of us.

So please, dear readers, send us your craziest and wisest, most practical and most amusing ways to stop them in their tracks. I could use some help (or at least a laugh) today.
