It is refreshing when Republicans actually say what is on their minds and stop hiding their agends behind the lie of fiscal conservatism .

Akin should be commended for saying what the GOP believes.

Women who vote for the GOP and women who are enablers and do not vote at all will regret it .

Well, if his name was Bidden, everyone would just laugh! Guess being a real moron is expected from a democrat, not a republican.

It is really chickenshit to see Republican front-runners allowing once again a bunch of rabid, extreme minority Democrats setting the discourse on human rights. Still, they're the better choice. Granted, there's likely quite a few million two-faced killer women out there, but they're usually so caught up in rationalizing their little murders for convenience, they don't vote. Who of any character wants to pander to them anyway?

It wasn't the terminology that Akin got wrong, but the facts; in the style of an evasive political careerist, he couldn't even put out an honest apology. And that moron sits on the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology? Space cadets must be qualified....

expressed the party platform - women are chattle and can't be trusted to make their own decisions, zygots and corporations get more respect and rights than adult women.

Why is Romney hiding?

Rape is terrible! So murder the baby, you know that baby isn't innocent in all this.
Oh what the heck, they won't ask, so I'll just tell them I was raped, this baby doesn't deserve to live.

The difference between the single word misspeak of a Republican and the intentional speak of a Democrat is enlightening. Akin uses a word, that Democrats pounce as something more extreme than it is. An actual Communist Democrat Senator Al Franken stumping with Biden jokes about giving pills to women, then raping them in a closet, or putting them in physical positions and taking pictures to degrade them gets him elected. Such sickness gets a Democrat elected because Democrat leaders think preserving an imagined respect for rapists deserves reducing penalties for rape and the answer to the few rapes of women is getting them to kill innocent babies. It seems Democrat moral imperatives have more to do with words, than actual criminal actions and weird fantasies.

remember t brawley who claimed she was raped? a non legitimate rape. AT THAT....or how about "your honor im innocent"...a non legitimate gesture of innocents..or how about marriage between two women or two men?..a non legitimate marriage.... it appears the dictionary has little meaning. as does the constitution ,or given norms of society..its all about "THE POLITICS"...
getting away with murder,or hopeing that nobody knows how to read between the lines,draw a line or comprehend a chess move.and its more about federal fups .where a few wrong turns ,a few oversights. and the country ends up in a social,financial and political death spiral...and thats the good news....the bad news is next year a locust plagues,eboli infections,casino bankrupcies,and ice storms in florida..oh yea inflation

The problem with Akin wasn't his use of "legitimate". Everyone knew what he meant, and unless they had an IQ so low as to not comprehend the word, knew what he meant.

His problem was his anti-scientific claim that a woman who in reality was raped couldn't get pregnant.

To add insult to injury, he was too dishonorable and pigheaded to take his name off of the ballot. There were others who could've taken his place, and who would have been far better representatives of freedom and small government.

Is there already a third-party candidate on the ballot for US Senate in MO?

No pregnancy deserves to continue unless the mother wants it.
If she don't want it, she can end it.
Kinda hurts ya a little to know that women have the ultimate power of life and death, and you do not.
