Akin is not a rogue element. There is no doubt he isspeaking for a major part of the Republican Party. However: the idea that there’s this secret secretion that women secrete in cases of rape….that’s just priceless, isn’t it? Or it would be if we weren’t talking about real politicians who hold real power.
Folks, these are the stakes. Allow these people to keep power, and we all know what will happen. Vote them out at long last, every last one, and maybe there’ll still be a chance. But Todd Akin has to go away. Even the GOP says so. Also anyone even remotely like him, these other knuckle-draggers. Now that they’ve self-identified, and keep doing do, they need to walk off the political stage, disqualified from any further consideration.
