“This is something that is relatively new. Looking in her eyes, I couldn’t come up with an answer to defend the exemptions for rape and incest. And over the course of the last few weeks, the Christmas holidays and reflecting on that…all I can say is that God was working on my heart.” - Rick Perry, at last night’s Personhood USA “tele-town hall” gathering.

Bachmann distinguished herself with her dishonesty, claiming at one point that Obama is “putting abortion pills for young minors, girls as young as 8 years of age or 11 years of age, on [the] bubblegum aisle.” (Obama, of course, recently overrode an FDA recommendation to make emergency contraception available over the counter for all ages, infuriating women’s-health activists.)
