At long last, Sen. Rand Paul has given a public comment on Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin. And unlike Mitch McConnell, who has demanded that Akin immediately drop out because
he is now a losing candidate and wants to replace him with an electable one so he can realize his dream of being Senate Majority Leader and to end negative press feeding franzy that is hurting Mitt Romney and the GOP his remarks were so offensive, Paul says… meh.
It’s nice that Rand Paul admits women don’t have magic lady parts that snuff out rape babies (based on his past medical associations, we weren’t entirely sure), but you’re really not even going to denounce Todd Akin? Even a little? Because you know what it’s like to get piled on?
Then again, I suppose we shouldn’t be too shocked. After all, Rand Paul has also long supported criminalizing abortion on the federal level for victims of rape.
Maybe Mitch will give him a good talking to, and convince him to help do what’s best for the Republic
