Or as they put it, “Paul Ryan Distances Himself from Todd Akin.”
So if you’re against abortion, you’re just like the dummy who said women can’t get pregnant from being raped. Or something.
That’s the way it works, see. Once someone from a political party says something nutty, everybody else in that political party is responsible for it. Well, unless they’re Democrats. Then you should be ashamed of yourself for even bringing it up. How dare you use such sleazy guilt-by-association tactics, you wingnut?
I think it’s great that all these people who had never heard of Todd Akin a week ago are suddenly experts. As I see it: He said something really crazy and stupid, he apologized for it (in the process saying more crazy and stupid things), and a lot of people are calling for him to drop out but he won’t.
Okay. And? If saying idiotic things is a barrier to entry in Congress, it’s news to me. If he runs he runs, and if he loses he loses. That’s the way these things go. I guess I don’t get all the panic about it, just because liberals and the media (PTR) have decided to seize on this. If it wasn’t this guy, they’d find some other Republican to swarm. They’d go back to Romney’s dog or his tax returns, or Ryan’s too-baggy suits or insistence on respecting mathematics, or whatever. The point is to embarrass Republicans, no matter what it takes.
Hell, they’ll even accuse their opponents of causing cancer. This is what they do. This is what they always do.
If you want to run around like headless chickens because oh no, now liberals won’t like us, go ahead. I’ll be right over here, not doing that.
P.S. Oh yeah, and the evil Republicans are going to “deny access” to birth control by physically restraining you from going to Rite Aid.
