Who Is This?

I thought at first she might be that actress from CSI. All the NYT tells us is she wrote a book called If They Only Listened To Us: What Women Voters Want Politicians to Hear.

Now, it so happens I frequent book stores a lot. A lot. Sometimes I buy. Sometimes I just browse. And I've never, never seen or heard of this book or her.

So why is this person being granted a valuable NYT op-ed spot to vent about Democrats and abortion, especially since her argument seems strangely so pre-2006. For that matter, it seems so strangely pre-2003. Does she know about Iraq? And ya know, the Democrats actually won the last election. But for Henneberger, the sky is still falling for Democrats, and apparently abortion is the problem.

Sigh. It also appears she spends too much time listening to Rush Limbaugh, or watching Hardball, because she somehow thinks it's the Republicans and Real American "pro-life" voters who are famously nuanced about this abortion business.

Very strange column, very strange timing, very strange argument. But whoever she is, it sounds like she'd be a perfect Fox "News" faux-Democrat.
