Comical Double Standards
LITTLE WONDER that Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nominee to represent Missouri in the U.S. Senate, is trying to back away from his comments about abortion and rape. So ignorant and offensive were his remarks that members of Mr. Akin’s own party, including its presidential standard-bearer, issued strong condemnations, though it took them a while to get strong enough. Mr. Akin was utterly unconvincing in explaining that he “misspoke.” It is scary that someone so ill-informed could hold elective office or have a chance of becoming a senator.The war against Todd Akin's stupid comments is completely justified. If only the Washington Post would apply the same standards against the stunningly stupid comments against Democrats like Barack "You didn't built that" Obama, Joe "Y'all will be back in chains" Biden and Sheila "Mars Rover" Jackson "Any photos of the flag the astronauts left behind?" Lee.
I mean, really!
