For John, BLUF: I suspect not enough lions die to inure us, but dead babies are a dime a dozen. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Over at Ace of Spades Hq,♠ about a week ago, was a sort of bouquet thrown at Irish 2016 Candidate, Marc O'Rubio. "Marco Rubio Commits An Act Of Political Competence, Immediately Outpaces Most Republicans".
People have been bemoaning the fact that Cecil the Lion was getting far more attention [than] the Planned Parenthood videos. Some were frustrated that every GOP candidate will now be asked about this.There is more at the link, but you get the gist of it.
My counter argument to that is, yes every Republican candidate for office at every level should be forced to answer a question about the damn lion and those that can't *effectively* turn it into a discussion about Planned Parenthood need to self-identify as incompetent and [be] removed from the electoral pool.
Amnesty advocate Marco Rubio was asked by a TMZ stringer about Cecil and much to my chagrin, did what needs to be done over and over and over again, redirected it to Planned Parenthood.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
