Anti-abortion activist announces Dem presidential bid

In a move that appeared more about self-promotion than actually winning, anti-abortion activist Randall Terry today announced his bid for the 2012 Democratic -- yes, Democratic -- nomination for president in front of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in D.C.
 
He said that, above everything else, his campaign is about the rights of fetuses that are "being brutally slaughtered and thrown in dumpsters and landfills."
 
Then Terry added that his campaign will be about the "human rights of the slave labor force on Obama's plantation," becoming the second social conservative to recently invoke race and slavery when discussing abortion
 
Terry argued that he can "pummel Obama's policies" and show him to be "the arch promoter of child killing in the Western Hemisphere" in a Democratic primary. He did acknowledge the obvious: that defeating Obama would be a long shot.
