McCain's trophy Veep choice isn't just a pretty mother of five and not Mitt Romney. She's an outspoken pro-life feminist. Confusing concept, we know.

The anti-abortion group Feminists for Life's website is almost coy about Sarah Palin's exact involvement, but here's everything you need to learn—fast—about the group she's tangled up with. Apparently the tactical geniuses at Camp McCain are really counting on all four of America's undecided independent anti-abortion feminists to vote.

Aside: Does anyone but me think the phrase "feminist for life" reads a bit like a jail sentence?
