Worse Subject for Trent Franks: Abortion, or War?



Congressman Trent Franks stopped spinning his abortion broken-record last week to talk about a new subject: war.

Franks announced that he plans to introduce a resolution authorizing the use of military force against Iran.

Franks apparently missed the memo about the American public being sick and tired over the constant wars.

Then again, Franks apparently also missed the memo that nobody likes the guy who won't stop talking about abortion, and Franks' fanatical obsession with abortion is pretty well-documented.

Usually, it would be refreshing to hear that Franks had something to say on a subject other than fetuses. Unfortunately, he's making loose talk of war.

Which would you say is a worse topic for Franks: abortion, or war?
