They're all trying to pretend they don't support what Akin said so no one will take notice the same thing is in their party platform. It's still their mission to make sure that rape and incest aren't qualifiers for abortions. it's still their position that there are two kinds of rape.

When the chick who made rape victims pay for their own rape kits aint got yer back you aint got nothing.

The GOP are trying to get rid of this guy and their official mouthpieces are working OT on the problem, the halfGov being no exception.

And not because they don't think like this guy but purely because he's become a political liability.

No remorse, no conscience, no clue.

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2012 GOP.

*golf clap*

Is that an official meeting of the He-Man Woman Haters Club or is it from the last GOP convention?

I really can't tell the difference at this point.

Let's be absolutely clear here - these people are not jumping off the Akin-wagon because they find his views despicable or wrong. They are doing it because they think he will lose and it will hurt the GOP. The difference in that is all the difference.

Ok, obviously he needs to rethink his senate campaign. Thus said, he never had Sarah Palin's support. Palin always wanted Sarah Steelman, and was butthurt when Akin beat her.

The Holy Mother of Conservatism has rejected a cub, left him out in the cold to fend for himself. Without protection, Akin with perish and the republicans will continue to idolize Momma Grizzly for her god given wisdom and natural leadership.

consider this: The amount of attention this Akin thing is getting does nothing but show how scared democrats are of the election in November.

I think Palin and Akin should have a nice quiet debate somewhere. May I suggest an airlock chamber in space?

NateGrey: These guys arent impressed by Saint Sarah's suggestion.


Actually a lot of them seem to agree with her. It's surprising how lucid the freepers are being over this. Sure, they're locked into their pro-life stance, but even some of these guys are saying Akin's a liability.

To be fair. Palin supported one of his primary opponents and she isn't exactly a graceful loser.

If he stays in he will win, as what he said represents what the majority of people in his district think.

Are they scared of a strong, successful conservative?

I love how Palin wants him to get out because he might lose, not because he thinks rapes only happen in dark alleys and never result in pregnancies.
 
2012-08-22 11:02:15 AM
all the establishment GOP are asking him to step down and he's defying them, some strong leadership you've got there

There are in the sense that there is such a thing as false accusation after consensual sex. But he never clarified if thats what he meant.

Should of been more clear, this suggestion wasnt getting too much traction:


"Maybe it is a third-party run of Sarah Steelman - that I could get behind,"

I heard a story on NPR yesterday where they were asking Missouri Republicans whether Akin should drop out. The first mouth breather they had on stated something to the effect,: "Yes he should drop out, it would be best for the party." Not best for women or rape victims or Missouri or the country in general, it would only be best for the party.

Republicans like Palin and this dipshiat have their priorities seriously screwed up.

Palin has no office, and her career at this point is going back and forth between stupid reality shows for people who don't like to think and whoring out her family on Discovery (or Syfy or whatever). Her ego only survives because she gets to play "kingmaker" every two years.

// what's her chosen candidates' record?

meat0918: When (and if) Akin wins, will it signal the end of the GOP?


fark no...

The infighting is funny and all, but this won't drive any votes away from Romney.

I do think it's absolutely hilarious that in their response to Akin, Romney and Ryan made it clear they would not oppose abortion in cases of rape, but then their own party makes it a point to add an item to ban ALL abortions for their convention platform.

Awkward.

I would not be surprised that this idiot wins. After the whole Chick Fillet stuff with morons willing to stuff garbage food down their gullets to "stick it to the libs" over a homophobe's statement, nothing surprises me about the spiteful assholes who call themselves "right wing".
