Remember when I wrote about the conservative writer who was imagining that Barack Obama's mother might have aborted him if she'd had the chance, and was wishing that this would make Obama think "more carefully" about the issue?
Looks like Mr. Whelan, whom I mentioned in my Wingnut Parade post, read this blog, then whined about it to folks. I found this because another blogger wrote to Whelan and he sent her a response, including a reference to this blog. I guess he didn't like my thought experiment as much as I didn't like his.
Apparently, when people emailed him with complaints about his post, instead of giving them a thoughtful answer, he complained about my reaction, and the reactions of all the other big, bad liberals.
Ed: You implied that Obama's stance on abortion was the result of careless thinking, but you didn't offer any evidence that this was the case. Instead, you sought to make some strange "what if" comment. You deserved all of the criticism you got, and I'd say speculation about your motives is natural when you decide to take such a bizarre approach.Posted by James at November 12, 2008 5:11 PM
