But check out this flabbergastingly deceptive exchange between Couric and Palin on the Early Show (yes, I know it's also a word salad -- we expect that now -- it's the active deception that matters here):
COURIC: Palin says she makes no apologies for her pro-life views and opposes abortion, even in the case of rape or incest.
Gov. PALIN: I'm saying that personally I would counsel that person to choose life, despite horrific, horrific circumstances that this person would find themselves in. And if you're asking, though, kind of foundationally here should anybody end up in jail for having had an abortion, absolutely not. That's nothing that I would ever support.
Actually, making abortion illegal, even in cases of rape and incest, is not "counseling that person to choose life," it's putting a gun to her head if she tries to be anything but her rapist's incubator. If Palin is trying to imply here that she does not think abortion should be illegal, that it is a woman's personal decision, then she is pro-choice. That would be a stunning reversal. Of course, it's actually just a disgusting effort to deceive the American people. No doubt baby Jesus wants her to lie so it's okay.
