NARAL vs. Doritos?

The radical pro-abortion group NARAL is, once again, doing its best to prove that the left denies the basic science of biology. Doritos aired an amusing Super Bowl ad showing a husband eating the famous nacho chips during his wife's ultrasound. Frustrated with her husband's inattentiveness, she has the expected reaction. But when her husband starts waving a chip around, the baby in utero starts following it. She wants one! ... That was too much for NARAL, which tweeted its condemnation of Doritos for "using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses." What exactly does NARAL think a fetus is? Fetus is Latin for "bearing young," "offspring" or "young while still in the womb," all of which means human unborn baby.

NARAL’s reaction speaks volumes. The only way it can justify abortion is by first dehumanizing the unborn child in the womb. Once that is accomplished, destroying a blob of tissue is a lot easier.

Gaga’s Greatest Hit

I’m probably the last person you would expect to praise Lady Gaga. I admit, writing this item is somewhat surprising.

When I heard Lady Gaga would be performing the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl, I was mortified. What kind of antics would she attempt this time?

But, much to my surprise and relief, she knocked it out of the park! (Pardon the mixed metaphor.) Watch her great performance of our National Anthem here.

GOP Fireworks

There were a lot of fireworks at Saturday night’s Republican debate in New Hampshire. Much of the post-debate commentary focused on the intense exchange between New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Florida Senator Marco Rubio. It is too early to tell how damaging Christie’s attacks were, and how they might impact [today’s] vote.

One New Hampshire tracking poll finds Trump leading by more than 20 points, with Cruz and Rubio tied at 13%, followed by Bush and Kasich at 10%. No other candidate received double-digit support.

While the polls were wrong in Iowa, it is unlikely they are THAT wrong in New Hampshire. Assuming Donald Trump wins, Senator Cruz is hoping for a respectable showing and looking forward to South Carolina, where he has a strong presence and a more favorable electorate.

Gov. Kasich needs a strong finish in New Hampshire because he really doesn’t have a national campaign. If he does well [today], it could give him momentum.

Many voters are hoping that the race will get down to two or three candidates sooner rather than later. But if Kasich and Bush do well in New Hampshire and if Christie surprises, there is little reason for any of the candidates to drop out. Depending on [today’s] results, it could be harder for conservatives or the establishment to coalesce around a single candidate.

Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders appears to be cruising to a blowout victory in the Democrat primary. The most recent CNN poll has Senator Sanders leading former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by 23 points. A daily tracking poll conducted by the University of Massachusetts finds Sanders up 16 points.

Of course, being the senator from neighboring Vermont, Sanders has a sort of “home court advantage.” Pundits predict he will struggle in southern states, where many believe Hillary Clinton has a “firewall” among minority voters.
