I still support Aiken, but hopefully, we can get past this and other Pro-Lifers will STAY OUT of this MINEFIELD. Just one example of the problems : legitimate vs "illegitimate rape". You cannot explain the meaning without "stepping in it". Don't even try. The rape issue is too charged. As always, think before you speak. AND, as always: God's Will be done.

You're absolutely right, but the reason it is so charged is because establishment repubs don't want to even discuss it because they fear the women's vote. There are 5 million more women voters than men. But there is "legitimate," rape and that today is called "rape/rape." Many states have tried to take the politics out by using the strict legal term: Sexual Assault I, II, III. What does it say about a country where we cannot even discuss things because it is too highly "charged?" Men need to stop cow towing to women and say that it is incredibly confusing and destruction--not to mention unjust.

Yesterday was a day that should have featured the Obamas answering questions about the charges of crankiness, stubbornness, and general dysfunction among the White House and Chicago campaign staffs.

We'll come back to that later.

Instead it was all about Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) who was asked during a...
