All thumbs

We need to get beyond it or he needs to get over himself as a candidate.

Rudy Giuliani Tells Pro-Life Advocates: Get Over Abortion Issue
Rudy Giuliani thumbed his nose at the pro-life movement further over the weekend telling them to get over the issue of abortion.
Though merely admitting to a disagreement on the issue before, Giuliani went further this weekend, telling an Iowa newspaper that pro-life advocates should get over the contentious issue.
"Our party has to get beyond issues like that," he told the Des Moines Register newspaper.
He also appeared to indicate that the Republican Party won't gain supporters if it retains its pro-life position.
"Our party is going to grow, and we are going to win in 2008 if we are a party characterized by what we're for, not if we're a party that's known for what we're against," he said.
Judging from the reaction to Bush's SCOTUS nominee Harriet Meiers, I think it might be the latter.

If that's how he intends to grow the Republican party, he can count me out. Get over himself, indeed. And some people say GWB is self-assured to the point of delusion... *groan*
