This is so weird. Akin says something scientifically wrong, gets raked over the coals for it by both parties & even Rush. Yet, the GOP, at their convention this week, plan on making a constitutional amendment against abortion, with no exceptions for rape or incest their party's official platform. This isn't a mistake, mind you, like that typo in the bill a couple months back. Amendments were offered to include these exceptions, but were defeated.
Maybe I live in a bubble here in Massachusetts, but Scott Brown (R-Senate) thinks this is ridiculous (it is). Sure, he can't beat Warren here & support outlawing all abortion, but I don't think Republicans can win the Presidency, let alone take the Senate & not lose House seats if this is their platform.
Thank you Akin?
