Here’s a quote from Republican strategist and consultant Mark McKinnon, who feigns surprise at the fact that the Todd Akin situation reveals that the party he works for is filled with politicians who will do anything at all to eliminate a woman’s right to control her own reproduction:
“It’s very tough for people like me who are pro-choice Republicans. It’s admittedly not a large caucus. But when I have to see a story like Todd Akin, and then turn to my wife and my daughters, who are looking at me and saying, `Really? These are the kind of people you’re associating with in the Republican Party?’ That’s a problem.”That was GOP strategist Mark McKinnon talking to Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC just now, deftly capturing the mess Todd Akin has created for the GOP and the Romney/Ryan campaign.
Really? Your wife and daughters are just now asking that question? And this just occurred to you? You haven’t been paying attention in class, young man.
