I want to win this seat just as much as the next person, but no one had better let any facts stand in the way!
The truth is there have been any number of reports of women who have claimed “rape” when they in fact had buyer's remorse from the previous night or discovered they might be pregnant. Additionally, ask any credible infertility clinic in this county. Is it easier to get pregnant under a highly fearful stressful situation or when one is relaxed, such as in the context of a loving marriage.
Gee, that doesn't sound too unreasonable. Yet, people are so craven to make a political win that they appear eager to forgo truth and honesty and just summarily political execute someone.
Yes, but part of being a good campaigner is that you think before you speak, and you never say anything in a way that can be sound-bited to make you look bad, especially if you’re a Republican and you know that media is out to get you. Who can forget the whole “Machacha” incident?
But this is true even if you’re not a Republican, just look at how much mileage Republicans are getting out of the “You didn’t build that” comment. Obama is just fortunate that the media covers for him so the fallout is not as bad.
To me this is more a issue about Akin just being a bad candidate, who talks before he thinks it through, which will probably manifest itself in other ways during the campaign.
