RWN Makes The CBS Blogophile Column

For the first time, RWN has made the incredibly hot Melissa McNamara’s Blogophile column over at CBS. Here’s a little background from Melissa’s column and the quote she used:

New American Foundation fellow Phillip Longman’s op-ed last week made lots of conservative bloggers jump for joy, and put some liberals on edge.

Longman uses population trends to conclude that progressives are less likely to have children than conservatives. He finds, for example, that among states that voted for President Bush in 2004, the average fertility rate is more than 11 percent higher than the rate of states for Sen. John Kerry. It’s a pattern replicated globally as well. “An increasing share of all children born into the world are descended from a share of the population whose conservative values have led them to raise large families,” Longman writes.

…And John Hawkins offers some tongue-in-cheek advice for those on the left. “Does that mean the left is doomed demographically? No, not necessarily,” Hawkins writes on Right Wing News. “They might be able to make up for it in other ways. For example, giving Amnesty to illegals could help bring millions of new voters into the fold. They could also — don’t laugh — freshen up their philosophy and ideas and gain a much higher percentage of new converts.”

Thanks for the mention. Melissa!
