RNC Ostracizes Todd Akin For His Extremist Views (Which are identical to the RNC's)

Reporter: "Should it be legal for a woman to get an abortion if she's been raped?"
Paul Ryan: "I'm very proud of my pro-life record and I've always adopted the position that the method of conception doesn't change the definition of life."

In other words, regarding the situation in which a rape survivor becomes pregnant, Republican VP nominee Paul Ryan's life-long, doggedly-pursued position is utterly identical to that of Sharon Engle ("If life gives you a lemon (you become pregnant after being raped) then you should make lemonade.") and it's identical to that of the strategically-scapegoated, infamous and utterly clueless Congressman Todd Akin (R-MO).

Don't be fooled by Mr. Ryan's "Gee, shucks. Y'all have nothing to fear.  I'm not the one who is running for President. Mitt Romney is."

That may be true, but Paul Ryan is no innocuous bystander/spectator/passer-by.  He's running for Vice President.  And, Vice President is a heartbeat away from the Presidency.

*Remember Sarah Palin's turn as GOP VP nominee in 2008?  (Of course you do.)  And, do you remember the moment when that particularly gut-wrenching, nightmare-inducing thought finally hit you that... IF John McCain were elected President... And, IF he were to die suddenly or become incapacitated...  THEN... (OMFG!) Sarah Palin would take his place as... President.

It's deja vu again with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

One shudders to think.
