Stupak Proponents Relatively Quiet
With the Senate preparing to debate the Nelson Amendment (Senate version of the Stupak Amendment) restricting abortion in the health care bill we took a look at how bloggers have been reacting to the Stupak Amendment.
The Stupak Amendment has generated fever-pitch blog discussion on the left – and relative silence on the right. While bloggers on the left have been vocal and prolific in their opposition, the issue has generated relatively little discussion among conservative bloggers – even among those who would, presumably, be the measure’s strongest proponents.
Typically, political hot potatoes in the debate have generated blog discussion that is distributed equally between left and right.
Why the relative silence from right-wing bloggers on Stupak?
