Is it me or could National Right to Life Committee's response to questions about why they endorsed Fred Thompson be any more robotic?
You can almost hear Darla St. Martin say to herself, "Stay on message. Stay on message."
It seems the subtext here is that they endorsed Thompson because Romney doesn't have a strong record on life issues (and possibly because he is in favor of expanded federal funding for embryonic stem cell research) and they don't believe Huckabee can win. McCain was probably out of consideration because of some combination of his advocacy with regards to expanding the federal funding of embryonic stem cell research and his low poll numbers.
I wonder what they'll do if Thompson drops out of the race before super Tuesday. Issue another endorsement?
