fallout continues from Akin's idiotic rape comments
The fallout continues from GOP Senate candidate and current Representative Todd Akin's incredibly stupid comments on rape and pregnancy. Akin canceled an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan; Morgan actually called Akin "gutless little twerp" and opened his show with a shot of the empty chair.
Even Romney and Ryan have rebuked Akin for the comment -- according to spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg, "Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan disagree with Mr. Akin's statement, and a Romney-Ryan administration would not oppose abortion in instances of rape."
And yet, a poll by Public Policy Polling shows that while 75 percent of Missouri voters say Akin's comments were inappropriate, he's still up 44 to 43 percent over Claire McCaskill.
