Just in case you were thinking about voting for John McCain, or anything he stands for...'s a lovely snippet, courtesy of AP:

John McCain says Roe v. Wade should be overturned. An editorial in The Philadelphia Inquirer points out that this wasn't always McCain's position on abortion: "An AP story dutifully reported the quote -- without providing any of the context. Such as the fact that, in 1999, as he was mounting his first presidential bid, he said this: 'Certainly in the short-term, or even the long-term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade.' Why not? Because without Roe, he said, 'thousands of young American women would be performing illegal and dangerous operations.' Therefore, he said, Roe was 'necessary.'"

We ARE heading back into the Dark Ages. Bring back the plague.
