Bart “I’m a Pro-life Democrat, No, Really, I Mean It, Stop Laughing At Me!” Stupak caved under pressure from the White House this weekend. And he’s none too happy about the criticism he’s been getting from pro-life groups around the country. He can’t be surprised that folks are upset. I think he’s just showing his true colors.

In our colleges and universities. You have organizers in your community? Do you think that’s a good thing? Do you know that “organizer” is a code word and does not mean what you think it means? Do you know that “Change We Can Believe In” is a slogan that could have come right out the pages of Alinsky’s book?
