Headline Of The Day

Talking Points Memo has the quote:

“As a husband and father of two young women, I found Todd Akin’s comments about women and rape outrageous, inappropriate and wrong. There is no place in our public discourse for this type of offensive thinking. Not only should he apologize, but I believe Rep. Akin’s statement was so far out of bounds that he should resign the nomination for US Senate in Missouri.”

Others Republicans are backing Tea Party hero Akin, including FRC vice president Tom McClusky, who is denouncing anybody that calls for Akin to withdraw.UPDATE: Akin tells Huckabee he won’t quit. Audio only.
