On Tuesday, Shaker MB shared a very moving guest post here, which was framed as an open letter to Rep. Paul Ryan, addressing how his views and policies are not actually "pro-life" at all. I've gotten a few interesting, ahem, emails from anti-choicers about that post. I'm sure you'll be shocked to hear that anti-choicers don't like having their cavernous hypocrisy so carefully detailed.

I regret to report I have not heard back, but if there are any further developments in this modern answer to the Lincoln-Douglas debates, I will be sure to you update you with all due urgency.
