Glass jaw GOP

Tom Franks writing over at the New York review of books reminds us of a special moment from election 04:

Residents of West Virginia and Arkansas received mailings from the Republican National Committee warning that liberals would ban the Bible if they got the chance. In numerous other states, voters were energized by ballot initiatives proposing constitutional amendments reacting to the illusory threat of gay marriage, an institution that was already illegal almost everywhere, but that conservative activists nonetheless decried as a mortal, immediate menace to civilization itself

How about a mailing effort saying something like:
"The Republican party wants to ban birth control"

Which, unlike the bible banning outrage above, is actually true. If they want a fight over the pill, lets give it to them. It's time to take the fight to these guys.
