    First, it minimizes rape. But second, and for gosh sake, the stupid is so painful, it's dismally idiotic. Let the doctors come forth who told Akin this shit--if there are any, they need to lose their licenses! I have a feeling they don't actually exist.

    I kept hearing this afternoon that Romney/Ryan "swiftly condemned" the statement. I never heard anything stronger than "disagree." Was there more that I missed? 'Cause disagree is not "swift condemnation" and I don't think you should get credit for condemnation when all you're doing is politely disagreeing with an asshat.

    Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. Throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. --Mark Twain
