I'm sure his token resistance will make all the difference.


They're neck & neck and his TV adds predominately feature Democrats endorsing him, so this doesn't hurt him.

Ah, I meant difference in regards to the GOP. I don't doubt that he'd use his "independence" as a talking point for the election.

Looks like he's slowly buckling, or just going with the "I'm doing it my way" facade.

The deadline was 5PM yesterday for him to quit "in time." If he quits now, he stays on the ballot in November and they'd have to do a massive write-in campaign to get anyone else elected.

Actually he can drop out between now and Sept 25 but the Sec of State has to approve it. I know that if he had dropped out yesterday the state GOP could select someone else for the ballot. I don't remember how they'll fill the slot if he drops out before the 25th.

I believe Akin also has to personally shoulder the state's printing costs for new ballots if he drops out.

According to Ryan, rape is rape is rape...
CBS Pittsburgh wrote:
Delano: “You sponsored legislation that has the language ‘forcible rape.’ What is forcible rape as opposed…”

Ryan: “Rape is rape. Rape is rape, period. End of story.”

Delano: “So that forcible rape language meant nothing to you at the time?”

Ryan: “Rape is rape and there’s no splitting hairs over rape.”

...especially when you're dodging questions about your support and co-sponsorship of a bill that explicitly redefined rape to NOT be "rape is rape is rape". I guess the language "meant nothing" Ryan. Or else he didn't know what it meant. Or maybe he just never read the bill.

More likely, "rape is rape" because Ryan only considers it to be "rape" when the woman has enough bruises to show for it.

That's just his ways of saying "I don't want to talk about my embarrassing past actions that could hurt me politically right now." Has very little to do with what he truly thought then or truly thinks now.

Well sure. The legislation he signed his name to tells us what he truly thought. What he says now to hide his true thoughts just shows his character, such as it is.

I had a German machine in the shop once that was roughly translated to English by the German Engineer who made it. There was one button on a screen, very large, that said ABORTION (it was the Stop button).

Someone got offended by it... they called me to the machine to complain and asked me to change it.

For all that they are mockable in the extreme, his stupid remarks are pretty much in keeping with the pretty ignorant segment of society he is courting for votes. Pity.

Also, in another totally boneheaded move, he is spinning himself as the hunted and bullied underdog that needs help to fight those nasty party bosses oppressing him:

Yeah, I'm sort of at my limit with the way blatant stupidity is celebrated on the right. I realize that many in his own party are calling for his withdrawal, but his donations alone speak to the sort of underground (for lack of a better term) support and it's disturbing. It's truly alarming to think of the willful, pervasive ignorance of basic biology.

Even worse are the post-article comments denigrating her situation on the sole basis of wilfull ignorance and disbelief.

I think all this anti-rape talk is just hate speech, trying to fear-monger men into being afraid of vaginas. So what, is a man supposed to think, "Well, there's this ****** here, and my ***** thinks it wants me inside of it. But wait, where is the rape line??" That's just too much thought to expect men to have under such duress.
