Now wouldn't it be interesting (to use one of Charlie's favorite words) if Mrs. Charlie Sykes were pro-choice?
Because, at least when she was Liz Woodhouse -- a regular on Charlie's show back in the late 1990s when he was otherwise married -- she was.
From a 1/10/97 Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel column by Tim "Cup" Cuprisin:
... it's not precise to classify "Liz" as an "outspoken conservative." She seems more libertarian, mixing anti-big government views with a stand in favorof abortion rights. And when was the last time an outspoken conservative got fired for stating her views? That would be a huge story.
So does Mrs. Charlie Sykes hold those pro-abortion rights views today? Now, it is, of course entirely possible that the opinions expressed by Liz Woodhouse (real name Janet Riordan) were a lie, as was her name. Could Charlie have changed her mind since she expressed those views? Possible -- but the Brawler suspects that people's opinions on that issue are fairly set when they reach Liz's age.
But the question is: What does it say about Charlie Sykes that he would attack pro-choice politicians with the vehemence he does if his own wife holds -- or once held -- the same position? It couldn't just be an act? Could it?
