On their way back home for a Very Republican Christmas, Ohio's GOP-gerrymandered lame duck legislature presented Gov. Kasich with not one but two -- count them, two! -- anti-abortion bills. Gift-wrapped, no doubt.
One called for banning all abortions after just 6 weeks of gestation, and the other after 20 weeks.
The restriction imposed by the first bill was clearly unwise and unconstitutional, and Kasich vetoed it. Good! But he went ahead and signed the 20 week restriction into law. Not good.
In some doltish circles, Kasich is getting atta-boys for vetoing the clearly awful 6 week ban while approving what, by contrast, appears to be more "moderate." But moderately awful is still awful, and bad law is still bad law.
To paraphrase the great comment from Van Jones about today's Republicans, you don't get credit for being the most-improved bigot. And there's no prize for being bad instead of monstrous.
No prize for you, Kay-suck.
