Of course, Todd Akin himself announced
just an hour ago that he will not
be dropping out of the race. And why should he? He explained
that he meant to say "forcible rape" instead of "legitimate rape," which brings him in line with the rest of the Republican Party, including Paul Ryan. Does the party really intend to force out Paul Ryan and every other Republican who supported redefining rape
to close "loopholes" that victims of not-really-rape have been exploiting on the taxpayers' dime?
Obviously, Republicans would like to force Akin to take the fall for this whole mess so they can go back to completely agreeing with him but without having to say so out loud.
