Salon on Stupak-Pitts

Salon has a good article up on the Stupak amendment, which they call Stupak-Pitts because Rep. Pitts's office put together a lot of the structure of the actual text, and how their connections to the Family, a cross-party fundamentalist political organisation, helped it all come together. This short article is worth reading in its entirety because of its discussion of the rising role of the evangelical and fundamentalist right in Democratic party politics.

Aside from that, there is of course also the important role of the US Catholic Bishops in rejecting the status quo as a mere accounting gimmick in this new context.

eta: Elevated from darksumomo's comment: Rachael Maddow's outing of eight pro-Stupak-Pitts Family Democrats.
