    And today’s poll was one of the most difficult in recent history. I was caught emotionally between:

    Arkansas state Rep. Jon Hubbard, for claiming that slavery 'may actually have been a blessing in disguise.'
    And
    U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, for claiming that doctors perform abortions on women who aren't pregnant.
    In the end I had to choose tight ass Todd.

Paul Ryan, disagree with Akin's comments that a woman's body has ways to prevent pregnancy after rape.

    Well, I am gearing up for tonight’s Monday Night Football. I will don my Houston Texan Mario Williams [Number 80 if you don’t know] jersey, cheer like a fool, curse at the refs/coaches on the computer screen [I don’t have a teevee so I watch at WatchESPN.com], and swig beer. This is pretty much the same way I watch the Presidential debates.

At right is Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., with Rep. Bill Flores, R-Texas, at left. Paul Ryan traveled a perilous route to political stardom. While other lawmakers nervously whistled past trillion-dollar deficits, fearing to cut popular programs, he waded in with a machete and a smile. Ryan wants to slice away at Medicare, Social Security, food stamps and virtually every other government program but the military.  (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
