Bill Clinton has the Real Rape Problem
"While Todd Akin is stewing in the woodshed, Bill Clinton is preparing to speak at the Democratic National Convention, and the women most offended by Akin’s dumb remarks will be queuing up to cheer Clinton on. Yes, it is a mental disorder."Meanwhile the Republicans who seem to be the models for "Diary of a Wimpy Party," are piling on Akin instead of acting like men and saying he's apologized let's move on. In a great article, Joseph Farah pegged it:
"Republicans are quick to turn on their own to show just how magnanimous and respectable they are. They want to demonstrate to the media and the electorate that they are smarter than those who occasionally stumble. And this is why they remain the minority party even when Democrats are destroying the country before our eyes.
"Think about it. It’s like a friend of mine said recently. 'Which of the following do you find more troubling? 1) Ted Kennedy kills a woman; 2) Barney Frank runs a homosexual prostitution ring out of his apartment; 3) Bill Clinton is credibly accused of raping Juanita Broaddrick; (4) Todd Akin misspeaks.'"Todd Akin may very well lose in November because the Republican establishment is guaranteeing it as a self-fulfilling prophecy with all their demands for his head on a platter. They are hanging a good pro-life candidate out to dry instead of rallying and reminding the electorate that words don't do nearly the damage that behavior does. Remember that little episode with the cigar and the blue dress? But if Romney loses, the Republican establishment will be wringing their hands and blaming Akin instead of themselves - just like they blamed Sarah Palin. Gotta have a scapegoat.
All this just goes to prove, once again, columnist Joe Sobran's point that the Republicans are the "stupid party" -- the really stupid party. God help us!
