This will be extremely short just because I'm mind boggled and speachless on whaat I came across.  As if Todd Akins caused a stir wih his "Legitimate Rape" reference. I guess Paul Ryan couldn't keep his mouth shut and had to one up his Ani-Abortion Bill buddy.

Yesterday on WJHL from Bristol, Virginia Paul Ryan sat down with a reporter and went over all the typical GOP talking points.  What caught me was Ryan's NEW view on Rape.  I've heard the 'Legitamate' Rape thing then there was 'Forcable' Rape and even 'Honest' Rape.  Now Paul Ryan has slipped to an absolute new low saying

Rape=A Method of Conception

I'll let you be the judge. (Click below)

Rape is a method of conception so ladies if you need to get pregnant Paul Ryan has a suggestion.   It starts at the 1:03 point in the interview.

Reporter: I think are viewers would  like to know specifically where you stand, specifically your pro-life…
Ryan: Oh yea, yea, yea…
Reporter: Specifically where you stand when it comes to rape, and when it comes to the issue of should it be legal for a women to be able to get an abortion if she’s been….
Ryan: So I’m very proud of my pro-life record and I’ve always adopted the idea the position that the method of conception (rape included) doesn’t change the definition of life.

I can't believe MSM hasn't picked this up!!??!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
