Outrage of the Day from AP's Nedra Pickler: 'Aborted Fetuses Who Survive'

I don't know how you top the example coming up for simultaneous outrage and doublespeak.

It's from Nedra Pickler of the Associated Press, covering Hillary Clinton's claim that Barack Obama -- known to yours truly as BOOHOO (Barack O-bomba Overseas Hussein “Obambi” Obama) -- is not a strong enough defender of abortion "rights."

You can't say that Ms. Pickler didn't come come up with a staunch, but also patently offensive, "defense":

During his eight years in the legislature, Obama cast a number of votes on abortion and received a 100 percent rating from the Illinois Planned Parenthood Council for his support of abortion rights, family planning services and health insurance coverage for female contraceptives. He voted against requiring medical care for aborted fetuses who survive, a vote that especially riled abortion opponents.

I would think that the idea of leaving "aborted fetuses who survive" by themselves to die would rile anyone but the most hard-hearted feminist.

I guess this is Obama's special brand of "you're on your own."

Jim Taranto at Best of the Web earlier today relayed the reality to Nedra "PC" Pickler:

There is a word in English for "aborted fetuses who survive." They are called infants.
