Time to vote third party?

How did this idiot Michael Steele get to be the head of the RNC? Can someone explain it to me? And can anyone understand what he said below in his interview with GQ's Lisa DePaulo

L: How much of your pro-life stance, for you, is informed not just by your catholic faith, but by the fact that you were adopted?

M: Oh, a lot. Absolutely. I see the power of life in that. I mean, and the power of choice! The thing to keep in mind about it, uh, you know, I think as a country we get off on these misguided conversations that throw around terms that really misrepresent truth.

L: Explain that.

M: The choice issue cuts two ways. You can choose life or you can choose abortion. You know, my mother chose life. So, you know, I think the power of the argument of choice boils down to stating a case for one or the other.

L: Are you saying you think women have the right to choose abortion?

M: Yeah. I mean, again, I think that's an individual choice.

L: You do?

M: Yeah. Absolutely.

L: Are you saying you don't want to overturn Roe v. Wade?

M: I think Roe v. Wade--as a legal matter, Roe v. Wade was a wrongly decided matter.

L: Okay, but if you overturn Roe v. Wade, how do women have the choice you just said they should have?

M: The states should make that choice: that's what the choice is. The individual choice rests in the states. Let them decide.

"what he's just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in his rambling, incoherent response was he even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award him no points, and may God have mercy on his soul."

Let me try to say it for him:

Yes, women have a choice, and unfortunately one of those choices results in the death of innocent human life. We all have choices, some are unconscionable. What Roe v. Wade did was to make the unconscionable conscionable to those who are not properly informed in conscience. Behind every abortion is a woman permanently and irrevocably scarred by unbelievable guilt and a weak failure of a man who facilitated one death and another wrecked, guilt-laden life.

So do I say women have the right to choose? Absolutely they do. We all have the right to choose good or evil. It is an inalienable right given to us by our Creator and the essence of our Free Will. But I say that women, and the men who supposedly love them, must choose the right thing and that right thing is to preserve human life in all forms and all stages and at all costs.
