The problem with Akin's comments is not that he was wrong. The problem is that his comments made him look insensitive to rape victims. We all make mistakes and i don't think this mistake makes him unqualified to be a senator. This mistake does make it extremely difficult to win the election. He should step aside for someone with a better chance to win.

What EXACTLY is insensitive about distinguishing between actual rapes and false claims of rape or about telling the truth about the rarity of conception via rape?

Well, ther eis an acatual problem. The problem is that the measure he is using to make the distinction is whether or not the woman became pregnant.

You claim his claim is accurate. Lets see some evidence

The problem with AKins commenst was that he revealed the true though process of Republicans. It goes like this.

1) Accept that what right wing extremists think is true
2) FInd some crackpot with a credential, no matter how sketchy, and use him as an authority to back up the previously identified idea
3) Express this backasswards concoction as an ultimate truth
4) WHen the idiocy of the process is pointed out, apologize, blame the media, and refer to Bill CLinton.

Amen, another question, who are the doctors Akin claims gave him this information? Only in his own imagination. Time he retired.

Oh that guy? Willke? The guy who was a spokesperson for the ROmney campaign in 2008 and recently met with ROmney who, apparently, agrees with him 100%.

Surprisingly, some doctors agree with him, so it's not as farfetched as you might believe.

do your own research, you lazy bum. it took about three minutes on google to find it.

Prediction: If the GOP establishment doesn't follow Republican Rep. Todd Akin's example with a big, fat apology -- to Akin -- the whole party goes down in flames come November.

I don't mean every Republican will lose, but there is great political peril in not sealing the hole in Republican armor that has opened in Missouri and instead permitting it to remain a Democratic pressure point. Further, "for the good of the country" (the mantra accompanying the partywide chorus of pleas to Akin to drop out of his U.S. Senate race), Republicans must resume funding Akin's viable campaign ASAP, after cutting it...
