South Carolina Democratic Chair: Palin's Primary Qualification is that She Hasn't Had an Abortion

Carol Fowler, chairwoman of the South Carolina Democratic party and wife of Donald Fowler who infamously laughed that Hurricane Gustav was going to hit New Orleans on the opening day of the Republican National Convention, remarked that the primary qualification Sarah Palin has to be John McCain’s running mate is that she’s never had an abortion. Classy. From the Politico:

South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler sharply attacked Sarah Palin today, saying John McCain had chosen a running mate ” whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”

Palin is an opponent of abortion rights and gave birth to her fifth child, Trig, earlier this year after finding out during her pregnancy that the baby had Down syndrome.

Fowler told my colleague Alex Burns in an interview that the selection of an opponent of abortion rights would not boost McCain among many women.

What a pair these two are: classless, tacky, and callous.
