Wow. Some alleged jokes are just beyond the pale. This is one of them. Sadly, it wasn’t the only one along those lines.

http://t.co/WDiUIpuf Comment of the day: "Shouldn’t [Santorum] be forced to carry his campaign to term?"

— Amanda Marcotte (@AmandaMarcotte) April 11, 2012

Dear Rick, you can't abort your campaign after 20 weeks, you'll have to carry it to full term. #santorum

Classy dame, as you can tell by her Twitter handle.

Dear Rick Santorum: Since you are so thoroughly pro-birth, you may not abort your campaign. you must carry it to term.

Pro-birth! Oh, the horror. 

It seems the one collective brain of the Left couldn’t even come up with many variations of the deplorable “joke”. What tolerance and caring! Nothing like a little gleeful crowing on the backs of the innocent.

Twitter came through, as always.

@politicalmath @dmataconis That's so clever because a campaign is just like a living per-born baby! #prolife

Wish I could say that "quip" was beneath you, @dmataconis. Instead I will say, "This is why libertarians and conservatives don't get on."

— Neal Dewing (@Neal_Dewing) April 11, 2012

@NewDealGin And I would say, "this is why conservatives don't have a sense of humor"

— Doug Mataconis (@dmataconis) April 11, 2012

See, it’s funny!What’s wrong, rubes? Dead babies aren’t hilarious to you? And mocking a man and his wife’s personal tragedy is side-splitting!

@NewDealGin It's not a "libertarian/conservative divide" thing. It's a "@dmataconis asshole tweet" thing—no more, no less.

@Wittorical but they're not really people, so it's okay to joke about killing them. 200 years ago it was black people. Today it's the unborn

— Harold Stickeehands (@StickeeNotes) April 11, 2012

Because the death of innocents is awwweeessoommme! (@dmataconis approves this tweet)

— Wittorical (@Wittorical) April 11, 2012

It’s time for some to have their moral compasses recalibrated. Start by thinking about this.

.@dmataconis Ho ho ho. It's funny b/c you compared crushing a baby's skull to a political campaign.
