My secret obsession with political rhetoric and semantics has been vindicated. The headline on this post on Think Progress’s Health blog pits Anti-Choice versus Pro-Choice, rather than the right-preferred, sensationalist Pro-Life versus Anti-Life.
Sadly, this pre-empts/undercuts the post I was planning to write, which was going to be an eye-opening and incisive critique of leftistish versus rightistish rhetoric, culminating in the ground-breaking conclusion that the left will never win because the right’s messages are more incendiary and viral. The non-dichotomy between Pro-Choice and Pro-Life was going to be my jumping off point.
… but the good news is, now I can spend more time doing other, more important things. What those are, I can’t quite divulge.
