Oxymoron

In the disgustingly mud-smeared senatorial race between David Vitter and Charlie Melancon, one claim stands out for its blatant hypocrisy -- Melancon's contention that he is a "pro-life Democrat" (which is an oxymoron to begin with).

Melancon's voting record as a congressman clearly demonstrates that he is practically in lock-step with President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose so-called "health-care reforms" have mandated the largest increase in taxpayer-funded abortions in history (not to mention embryonic stem cell research, rationing of health care for the elderly and many other anti-life policies).If, indeed, Melancon is personally pro-life and yet votes for such anti-life legislation out of political expediency, then he is betraying his own moral principles (which is worse than not having them in the first place)..
