Manny's response to Logical is a giveaway, since demands for proof that DU'ers "support Putin" is usually met with the insinuation that the person asking for proof ALSO "supports Putin."

right to choose are just being silly. The implication being, "who on DU would ever argue against a woman's right to choose?"

I guess Manny missed all those discussions where DUers argued against womens' rights to abortions.

Or the Administration's response that DUers were welcomed to argue against womens' rights to abortions as long as they were polite about it.

But, see, Manny gets annoyed when it is discussed here. Because the whole discussion is something he finds silly. And it must, at all costs, be all about Manny.

Shall we begin the countdown till Manny posts his thread backtracking on this thread?



ETA the thread Manny is all bunched up about is this one: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=4703887
