#9 It will be about abortion, I suspect. And don't underestimate the potential impact with some moderate women who wouldn't have one themselves but who are uneasy at the thought that we could possibly go back to a time when contraception as well as abortion was illegal - as it was within living memory of some women voters.

#10 Gloria is currently working with Dan Rather to create the documentation.

#11 The smoke about abortions is that even in the very unlikely event if Roe was overturned, numerous states would simply step in and make it legal. Most of which will obviously be in the Blue color this election, though I suspect even there some return to things like parental consent with a judicial appeal option would be implemented.

#14 If you're running Champ's campaign and you have some good dirt on Mitt, do you let Gloria Allred -- who would surely be in any discussion of "Who is the world's most despised woman?"-- dish it? When the NYT or the WaPo or Sandra Fluke would happily do the job?
I think the October surprise is more likely to consist of Champ, shortly before the foreign policy debate, bombing a tent full of hapless Libyan goat herders and announcing that he got the guys who killed Ambassador Stevens and the three other bumps in the road. (A SEAL raid would be much more dramatic, but it turns out that those guys have an inconvenient propensity to tell the truth.)

Or publish and release books on the mission the week before the election.

#16 This Gloria Allred woman has a lot to answer for, may she soon get the opportunity.

#18 The pic of Brown brings back memories. When it first came out - Brown and Ronstadt had gone to Africa together. When the "propriety" of that trip was questioned, Brown said "nothing happened between us". A local SF columnist said - only with Jerry would that probably be true....

#20 When the NYT or the WaPo or Sandra Fluke would happily do the job?
Sandra Fluke, the woman at the center of a media firestorm earlier this year after Rush Limbaugh called her a "slut," spoke Saturday in front of about 10 people at the Sak 'N Save in north Reno.
The speech was part of a daylong effort by Democrats to get Northern Nevadans to the polls on the first day of early voting.
Wow. That is soooooooo sad. Welcome to Hard Trivia Question Answer Land, sweetie. Get me a beer while you're up...

#21 at least Ms. Fluke was vertical.....with her legs closed...for a change

#22 Republicans bracing for 'October surprise' as Gloria Allred 'prepares for Romney revelation'
That's it: Headline Oct 22,2012 - "Mitt Romney Supports Missionary Positions Regardless of Religion"

#23 Ok, that one's funny.

#24 Didn't Gloria Allred find some woman who came out of obscurity to say she had an affair with Herman Cain. The woman faded like a cheap dress as soon as Herman was destroyed politically. This seems to be Allred's MO--hit man womym for the Donks. I have trouble imagining what scandal could be out there about straight-laced Mitt. The Chicago Boyz are at work again.

#25 My guess is when he was in the hospital in France after his car accident ... he wasn't wearing Mormon sanction briefs.

#26 A story has been circulating for some time about a woman who had a problematic pregnancy (and 4 living children). Romney was a young Mormon bishop who took a firm line against aborting.
The intent is to show him as uncaring, out of touch, a danger to women, a secret extremist.

#27 lotp, yep. He was a lowest-level public representative of a religion that believed abortion was wrong, and advised a young pregnant woman to pursue other avenues, which she did, and in hindsight is glad she did. Not surprisingly, that seems to be the response of a great many women who follow that kind of advice. Or are subjected to it against their desires (eg. 'Roe.')
