CHICAGO (CBS) – Maybe – my fingers are crossed – maybe now that Arizona and Michigan are done voting in the GOP primary, maybe now the men running for president will move on beyond sex?

There are issues more urgent than sex; like genocide in Syria, violence in Greece, bombs in Baghdad. But the candidates for president are talking about sex and contraception.

Nine million Americans are unemployed, five school children were shot Monday, the national debt is a fright, public education is a disaster, and illegal immigrants are crossing the borders. But the candidates for president of the United States, the most critical position on Earth, are yapping about birth control.

What are they, crazy?

Global warming, cancer, child abuse and obesity, and unaffordable college tuitions; but the candidates, the electorate, and the media are yapping about ultrasounds and abortions.

Are we all crazy?
