Adam Serwer (Mother Jones) and Daniel Foster (National Review Online)

On Adamize, Adam and Dan discuss the GOP convention in Tampa. Can Ann Romney humanize her husband, or should she just portray him as a job-creating robot? Dan recounts how the pro-life movement disowned Todd Akin, and Adam explains why rape exceptions for abortion are a tricky issue for Republicans. Gay and lesbian Republicans may be an awkward fit for the GOP convention, but Dan reports that they’re making themselves known. Finally, Adam argues that Ann Romney’s favorite TV show, Modern Family, proves that the gay rights movement is destined for victory.
