The other day, Justice Kennedy told us that “there is a national consensus against capital punishment for the crime of child rape.
John McCain and Barack Obama both issued statements supporting capital punishment for the worst cases of child rape.
It’s rare to see the two main contenders for the presidency arguing against the “national consensus” on an issue.
It just goes to show you the extraordinary political courage that Obama and McCain both showed on this issue.
They support death for the worst cases of child rape. And that is their stand — no matter how many votes it costs them!
