The head of the Republican Party called on President Obama to withdraw Kathleen Sebelius' nomination as health secretary unless she answers more questions on abortion.
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele's comments come on the same day Sebelius, the Democratic governor of Kansas, vetoed a bill that would rewrite a state law restricting late-term abortions. The measure would have required doctors performing such abortions to report additional information to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
Steele says Sebelius has not been forthcoming about her stance on late-term abortions and her ties to a Kansas abortion doctor, George Tiller.
Tiller has been the subject of some of the most, um, demonstrative
anti-abortion protests, and not without good reason. Tiller's practice

we have a Secretary of State who wants to overcharge our relations with Russia;
we have a head of the CIA whose intelligence experience consists of how to sneak the bimbos in and out of Clinton's White House;
we have a Director of National Intelligence who has a history of human rights violations;
we have a judge-shopping Attorney General;
we have a Secretary of Education who's planning on 'fixing' No Child Left Behind because his former school district was unable to meet its standards;
we have a Secretary of Labor who was on the board of directors of a pro-labor lobbying group;
we have a Homeland Security Secretary who thinks Canada and veterans are our nation's greatest threats;
and now we have a possible director of Health and Human Services who has accepted campaign and PAC money from what might be the nation's most notorious abortionist.
