Stupak insults 59,000 Catholic nuns

It's hard to imagine how stupid this guy is. Over half his district, after all, is female.
Congressman Bart Stupak, D-Mich, responded sharply to White House officials touting a letter representing 59,000 nuns that was sent to lawmakers urging them to pass the health care bill.

The conservative Democrat dismissed the action by the White House saying, "When I’m drafting right to life language, I don’t call up the nuns." He says he instead confers with other groups including "leading bishops, Focus on the Family, and The National Right to Life Committee." [emphasis added.]
Connie Saltonstall is Stupak's primary opponent. You can donate to her here.

First of all, these "Sisters" would be the first to object to being called "nuns," since they consider themselves "Sisters," as they have rejected the cloister, the habit, poverty, and just about everything noteworthy about being female religious.

I don't think you've read the article (or know many nuns) if you think they've rejected poverty.
