Concerning Paul Ryan on rape and abortion, this comes from Ed Kilgore:
[E]ven on occasion when he’s supported “compromise” legislation that recognizes rape/incest exceptions, he’s been in favor of narrowing them, as in last year’s House GOP effort (eventually abandoned) to limit the rape exception to “forcible rapes”—an uncomfortable echo of Akin’s “reasoning.”
The mind reels. Mitt Romney has vaulted a fanatically anti-woman politician onto the national stage. Why?
