Well, the liberal press is again on a rampage about how they think that a older Conservative white male. And just as an aside, why is it that when they call out people on the right to ridicule something they have said, it is almost always older white men who are the ones being ridiculed? Explain that, self-proclaimed non-racists.
Anyway, the US representative and renown diagnostician of social programs afflicted with diseases related to socialism Todd Akin made a statement that many misconstrued as disrespectful to rape victims. Which in not by any means what he meant the statement to do. In an email he sent out Sunday afternoon, he tweets† “this interview . . . does not reflect the deep empathy I hold for the thousands of women who are raped and abused every year.” See?
And while he says he may have mispoken with his off-the-cuff remarks about how women can prevent pregnancy while being raped by shutting down their reproductive systems during such a traumatic time, I feel that he believes he didn’t clarify his remarks well enough to show that he meant no slight to the women of Missouri or the United States. He should have given voice to the deepest respect he has in women and his belief that they, even more than men, have the capacity power and strength to rise above any situation, no matter how horrific it may be. That by sheer will alone, women have overcome adversity time and time again and will continue to do so well past the time he, a mere man and future US Senator from Missouri – remember to vote early if you’re living in a district where that isn’t frowned upon, had shuffled off this mortal coil. Adding, and he will eventually perhaps forgive them the fact that they are killing millions of babies each time this happens, someday.
Yes, that is the type of guy Rep. Akins the left is trying to demagoggle‡ as just another older white man not getting women. Well, it seems that it’s the other way now, isn’t it?
UPDATE: Rep. Steve King has issued a rock through the window in support of Rep. Akin, saying, asking for an investigation into “why then re there thousands of minors being transported across state lines for forced abortions if all the girls had to do was shut off their egg shoots.” He goes on to place blame squarely on the education system for not educating people more gooder.

†ed. note: Yes, he calls emails tweets. He can’t be a genius about everything.
‡I am still in search of the perfect verb form of demagogue. “Demagogue is a noun,” I hear the voice William Safire screaming above the roar of flames, perhaps he is sharing a fine sherry by a nice warm hearth in his afterlife,
