Excellent article Mr. Elder; thank you. I would also like to add that the continued attention popular conservative 'hyper-media' information sources are spending on Mr. Akin is distracting. 'Rape' when used as a verb can be defined as to seize, take or carry off by force. This very definition can be used in describing our present administrations attempts on our American rights. Let's not let Mr. Akin's wine drip take priority over the burst wine barrel.
Which is worse, Rep. Todd Akin's, R-Mo., ignorance about human anatomy -- or the way Republicans jump, run and hide when the Democrat-media complex decides they should?

Akin is the Republican candidate for a crucial Senate seat in Missouri. In an interview, he said that he believed that pregnancy following an act of rape is "really rare -- if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down."

Incredibly dumb. The married father of six, including two daughters, apologized the next day and then recorded an ad apologizing yet...
