Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Sister Simone Campbell is a Catholic nun and liberal activist who has earned a lot of media coverage this year for criticizing the Paul Ryan budget while riding around the country on a bus. [Wednesday night] at the Democratic National Convention, Campbell will be speaking from the podium against the Ryan budget.
But how does Campbell, a Catholic who says she believes abortion is the taking of an innocent life, weigh her budget concerns against her opposition to abortion? It turns out there's not a dilemma because, as Campbell told me this afternoon at the Charlotte Convention Center, she doesn't know if she supports laws protecting the lives of unborn children.
TWS: On the legal question, do you think there should be penalties against abortion doctors? I mean, should it be illegal to perform abortions?
CAMPBELL: That's beyond my pay grade. I don't know.
A central tenet of the Catholic faith is above her pay grade.
Isn't that special?
Dance around the issue, because that religion stuff is just so rigid and inflexible. Why follow the example of Blessed Mother Teresa when all your cool feminist friends are lining up behind Margaret Sanger? And if we have to sacrifice our religious freedom for a little social justice, well that's just the price to be paid. Thirty pieces of silver under the bridge, to mangle a metaphor.
Alas, Sr. Campbell is no stranger to scandal. A few months back she teamed up with "comedian" Jon Stewart to mock the Catholic Church, demean Church hierarchy, and attack the dignity of human life. Which of course is why the media loves her with all their hearts.
And let us not forget her unabashed lobbying on behalf of Obamacare. Advocacy which brought her accolades from President Obama. The fact that his signature legislation absolutely contradicts the Catholic faith she is sworn to uphold and protect means nothing compared to getting a hug from Dear Leader himself.
"He gave me this great hug and said, 'Thank you for your leadership. It made a big difference.' It brought tears to my eyes. I am still wound up."
Would that those were tears of shame.
