    Mike,

    Rep. Scott would be stoned if he came to Athens with this tour.

    This is great.

    Jason, I love you man, but its absurd to call him ultra-conservative based only on this. The only difference between Rep. Scott and the other pro-life legislators is he is acting on his position rather than sitting on his butt. The MSM loves to call conservatives who actually act (rare thing, I know) “ultra-conservative.” How many libs does the MSM call “ultra-liberal?” Very, very few. If anything, they call them “very progressive.” Rep. Scott is not ultra-conservative. He’s a conservative with a heart for action and a mind for results.

    Haha. On the same lines, I think this year is the 10th anniversary of Panic in the Streets. I am REALLY hoping Panic comes back for round 2. I’d definitely make sure I’m in Athens for that.

    Martin Scott, Summer Tour ’07? Better get there early, because the crowds are estimated to be in the single digits at each and every stop!

  5. Ah guys…hate to break this to you but banning abortion is an extreme position. If your definition of extreme, like mine, is that less than 25% of the population feels this way.

  6. Donkey Kong says:

    Chris,

    July 21 ABC News/Washington Post Poll:
    42% think it should be illegal in all or most cases

    July 17 CBS/NYTimes Poll:
    56% think abortion should be either outlawed or have stricter limits

    April 23 NBC/WSJ Poll:
    43% say abortion should be either outlawed or only available in the cases of rape, incest, or to protect the life of the woman

  7. Chris, I hate to break it to you, but killing babies is an extreme position.

    If you spoke with some of these women whose consciences are now tortured…you would hear testimonials describing the blood that is shed.

    Call it a fetus if you want to, but you are becoming marginalized. You are fighting a tidal wave of compassion and healing.

    Jason, I love you man, but its absurd to call him ultra-conservative based only on this.

    I like Martin Scott’s positions on fiscal matters (his vote on the budget), but this proposed amendment is pointless

    It is clear that if Martin Scott had his way, Terry Schiavo would still be suffering.

  9. Hey guys learn how to read a poll.

    For reference, here is the amendment:
    http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2007_08/versions/hr536_LC_14_9715_a_4.htm

    Notice that there is nothing in there about exceptions for rape, incest or the life of the mother. You’ll just have to take my word that polling that asks if you want to ban abortion in all cases is rated very low, sometimes as low as 10 or 12% depending on the area for example Georgia Senate District 25.

  10. liberator says:

    Another holier than thou Republican who wants to control the reproductive organs of females. Another Back to the Cave type and people wonder why the GOP lost the House and Senate in 2006!

  11. ConservativeCaucus says:

    liberator… the GOP lost the House and Senate for a number of reasons, but it wasn’t because of their positions on the abortion issue.

    There was no public outcry over the GOP acting too tough on abortion. Main three issues: public disgust with apparent lack of success in Iraq, corruption, lack of fiscal discipline.

    I am curious… do you think it is possible to be against abortion and not be “holier than thou”? If not, why not? If so, how exactly would that look?

  12. Thadius says:

    liberator: FYI Martin Scott is a Legislator. That means that he has ben placed in a position of real authority and real responsibility.
    If he were a shock jock trying to up his ratings then he would be obliged to “turn people on”.
    Or should all politicians disregard principle in favor of “not wanting to turn people off”?
