Newsbusters has video from The Rick Sanchez Comedy Hour, also known as “Rick’s List”… this is such a hoot:

Near the end of the 3PM ET hour of CNN’s Rick’s List on Friday, host Rick Sanchez couldn’t seem to figure out who was protesting at the March for Life in Washington D.C.: “It’s the 37th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade case….both sides being represented today, but it does appear to me, as I look at these signs that – which side is represented the most….Do we know?”

What’s sad is, he came back from the break STILL CLUELESS, so no one else on his set knew what was going on, either. Wanting to appear, “fair and square”, he made note that there did seem to be more pro-lifers than pro-choicers..
Returning from the commercial break, Sanchez clarified that most of the protestors “seem to be” pro-life, but still seemed completely unfamiliar with the annual event: “As far as we can tell, following this protest on this day, the bulk of the protesters that we have seen here – that doesn’t mean there aren’t others, because we haven’t gone out and counted them individually – seem to be anti-abortion activists. We’ve seen more pro-life signs than we have the others.”

And here, Rev. Rob Schenck talks with Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, the largest pro-life organization within the Catholic Church about the future of the pro life movement.

As far as I can tell, the one with the collar, Fr. Pavone, appears to be  Catholic…that doesn’t mean he’s not Protestant, or Jewish or whatever,  but I get a definite Catholic vibe from him. He appears to be pro-life, as well:

Here’s Rep. Mike Pence who appears to be a pro-life Republican speaking to the pro-life faction at today’s protest:

The Culture Wars Elude Newsweek

of the American Spectator fisks a Newsweak article by a clueless feminist who doesn’t seem to grasp that The March For Life is a Pro Life event, either.

It appears — and I cringe to write this — that either Gesaman or Maddux (or both), does not comprehend that the annual Jan. 22 protest in Washington, DC is a pro-life protest. Her/their concern over the prospect that “feminists” will no longer march to “memorialize” Roe v. Wade is…

I don’t know. Clearly, this blog post is inscrutable and it’s not worth trying to figure out the author’s intent. But I am still wrestling with the idea that A) it’s possible that there’s someone out there — anywhere — that does not understand that pro-choice feminists are not participating in the March for Life and B) that Newsweek chose this person to write about today’s protests.
