A Red Meat Extravaganza

or, How to Attack Barack Obama with Class (sort of).

The author admits that the Obama-Ayers attack line is just not sticking with the American public, and goes to looks to the issue of abortion as a means to better attack the Democratic Presidential nominee.

Step 1; a good bit of rhetoric:

After introducing the issue by way of discussing her young son, Palin shifted to Obama's record of "unconditional support for unlimited abortions."  Almost echoing Geer's column, Palin continued, "He said that a woman shouldn't have to be - quote - ‘punished with a baby.' He said that ... - ‘punished with a baby' - and it's about time we called him on it ... Americans need to see his record for what it is. It's not negative or mean-spirited to talk to about his record. Whatever party you belong to, there are facts you need to know."

Step 2; Reference his record:

She followed these words by detailing Obama's major abortion policy moments: voting against outlawing partial-birth abortion and voting against an Illinois iteration of the Born Alive Act, which grants medical care to infants who survive the abortion procedure and which passed unanimously in the U.S. Senate.

Step 3; Use Obama's record as a measuring stick for his judicial appointments.

There you have it, folks. Just remember a majority of Americans want to keep abortion legal.
