    I’m happy to see Mikey has limits on what he will tolerate from the Right.

    “I don’t know how this works in the U.S.. but in Germany you would get kicked out of the party and would have to run as an independent, if at all. Is that not an option available to the GOP? Can anybody just claim to be a Republican or Democrat, even if the party doesn’t want them”?

    The thing is he won the Primary which is an election in itself. Republicans can do now is cut off his party funding which they have.

    “All he did was state the republican agenda in plain english. Don’t take my word for it, look at the republican platform approved last week. For this they’re flushing him. If they were being honest, the republican party would be embracing him”.

    Bull. He said that “A woman’s body can shut itself down during a legitimate rape”. To top if off he then said he meant violent rape. A stupid idea with a Freudian slip, that is not a policy. Also I would like you to explain how get from a pro-life stance to your comment?

    Their platform is to make all forms of abortion illegal, regardless of the situation. There’s even a provision to allow a rapist to sue for parental rights.

    I’m certain that he was using the word legitimate rape to imply that there are some women who cry “rape,” when it was consentual the night before. i.e. “Give me an A in this class, or I bring rape charges on you.” The crazy thing about rape is that a man is guilty until proven innocent, and even if he’s found not guilty, his reputation is ruined forever.

    What he said was stupid, yes. No doubt about it. And while he was completely insensitive, if a woman is under durress during the act of conception, the female body does make it more difficult to conceive said child. When the act is consentual, those natural defenses aren’t up. What he should have said was “non-consentual sex,” because that would have been more accurate.

    Once the pimple bursts there is no way to put it back. Suck it up, Reeps, your puss has been exposed for what it is:hatred of everything but the tax cuts for the rich.

    Akin is the poster boy for Republican scientific opinions.

    Sorry you are wrong here it is the Sanctity of Human life portion form the platform.

    Maintaining The Sanctity and Dignity of Human Life

    Faithful to the first guarantee of the Declaration of Independence, we assert the inherent dignity and sanctity of all human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution, and we endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children. We oppose using public revenues to promote or perform abortion and will not fund organizations which advocate it. We support the appointment of judges who respect traditional family values and the sanctity and dignity of innocent human life.

    We have made progress. The Supreme Court has upheld prohibitions against the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion. States are now permitted to extend health-care coverage to children before birth. And the Born Alive Infants Protection Act has become law; this law ensures that infants who are born alive during an abortion receive all treatment and care that is provided to all newborn infants and are not neglected and left to die. We must protect girls from exploitation and statutory rape through a parental notification requirement. We all have a moral obligation to assist, not to penalize, women struggling with the challenges of an unplanned pregnancy. At its core, abortion is a fundamental assault on the sanctity of innocent human life. Women deserve better than abortion. Every effort should be made to work with women considering abortion to enable and empower them to choose life. We salute those who provide them alternatives, including pregnancy care centers, and we take pride in the tremendous increase in adoptions that has followed Republican legislative initiatives.

    Respect for life requires efforts to include persons with disabilities in education, employment, the justice system, and civic participation. In keeping with that commitment, we oppose the nonconsensual withholding of care or treatment from people with disabilities, as well as the elderly and infirm, just as we oppose euthanasia and assisted suicide, which endanger especially those on the margins of society. Because government should set a positive standard in hiring and contracting for the services of persons with disabilities, we need to update the statutory authority for the AbilityOne program, the main avenue by which those productive members of our society can offer high quality services at the best possible value.

    They really want to get rid of Akin, because his voting record is “Paul Ryan lite”. (who he co-authored bills with)

    I think if we were allowed to hear the actual conversation, it would be; good work. We’ll publicly demand you drop out, but keep on, we don’t really mean it. This is perfect for creating confusion which leads to votes.

    “Someone forcing himself on you against your will…”
    -
    When did Akin force himself on the Republicans? He co-wrote Ryan’s anti-abortion bill. He was ELECTED by Missouri Republicans. He only exposed what many Republicans believe, much like Trent Lott did when he said ‘We should have listened to Strom Thurmond’.
    -
    Akin is CORE Republican philosophy. Anti-abortion in all cases. Once the kid is born, s/he should go away.
