Clinton rape scandal resurfaces in Akin controversy: The McCaskill-Clinton videos.
(Page 4 of 8)
So the Akin-McCaskill race is now formally on. With Akin expected to have a tough time defeating McCaskill because, well, you know, the “legitimate rape” business.
President Obama has taken after Akin, with the comments noted above. Over at the Democratic National Committee they have a banner on the front page of their website featuring black-and-white photos of Romney, Ryan and — Todd Akin.
The caption? “The GOP is Dangerously Wrong for Women.”
Like clockwork, Nancy Keenan, the President of the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), took to the Huffington Post to slam the Romney/Ryan ticket, insisting that the two ”… have every intention of a continued War on Women.”
And — get this — Keenan posted the news on the NARAL website that she was “honored” to be chosen to speak at the Democrats’ convention. From the same podium where the man accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick will nominate President Obama. Writes Keenan: “I will speak on behalf of NARAL Pro-Choice America’s million member-activists, and all Americans who understand that women — not politicians — should be able to make personal, private health-care decisions.”
All of which is to say, when it comes to the allegation that the convention’s star speaker other than Obama himself has a rape problem — the NARAL president will be only to happy to clam up and, to borrow the now famous phrase, legitimize rape.
Over in the Senate, California Senator Barbara Boxer stepped into trouble instantly: “All rape is forced. Am I right on that point?”
Well. Yes. Recall Broaddrick’s description to Rabinowitz of the force used on her by Bill Clinton:
“Mr. Clinton….got her onto the bed, held her down forcibly and bit her lips. The sexual entry itself was not without some pain, she recalls, because of her stiffness and resistance.”
The injuries she received in this act of rape, Broaddrick says, were apparent enough that on his way out of the room:
“This is the part that always stays in my mind—the way he put on his sunglasses. Then he looked at me and said, ‘You better put some ice on that.’ And then he left.”
Whatever Todd Akins’ flaws, his worldview is in fact a world away from that of not only Claire McCaskill and Barack Obama — but certainly of Bill Clinton.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
