It was simply a matter of time before Republicans found an excuse to support the candidacy of Todd Akin for senator from the state of Missouri. Newt Gingrich now argues that Todd has apologized and the real issue is not about rape but about female rights. If we are discussing feminism then certainly Todd and his buddies have every right to challenge women controlling their body. Once the issue is control of body it means we are discussing abortion!
Newt wants all to forgive and and express tolerance for the Akin insult to women in America. It is quite clear that Republicans accept an apology and will never hold any grudge against those who make mistakes. This attitude is clearly that of Fox News in its discussions about President Obama.
We can expect the money to roll into Missouri from the national GOP headquarters.
