Shooting fish in a barrel.

Gibson does a good enough job, but it's a little like shooting fish in a barrel.

They are running on a campaign of change, but the only change she offers is more of Bush's policies rather than less. More tax cuts, more cuts in services. It's the ultimate proof that they have tried to steal Obama's clothes but don't understand what change actually means. Change can't be more of the same, it simply can't. That's a contradiction in terms. And yet that's what she lays out here.

On Roe vs Wade she is explicit that she wants this overturned. But says she wants to work with the other side. What's to work with? She wants to refuse women to have any choice in this matter, so how can anyone work with her? This is another example of where this pair resemble Bush. She sees bipartisanship as the other side coming round to seeing things her way. "I believe that a culture of life is best for America [...] Women can and should be empowered to embrace, to allow that culture of life." Women are empowered when they accept her values.

Then she tells us that she doesn't believe in the banning of semi-automatic weapons. It's ridiculous, all she has to do is state her views to mark her out as the wacko extremist that she is.
