Johnson, Ryan and Romney yukking it up
"Todd Akin’s statements are reprehensible and inexcusable," Johnson tweeted today. "He should step aside today for the good of the nation."
It's remarkable that Johnson didn't applaud Akin. Someone must have clued him in.
But does Ron Johnson -- known as RoJo the Clown to Wisconsinites for his inability to understand or articulate even the most simple issues -- think Paul Ryan should "step aside" from the national ticket?
Ryan, you see, shares Akin's view that there are different kinds of rape. There's "forcible" rape, and then there's whatever other kind he imagines.
Kaili Joy Gray explains on Daily Kos:
Ryan co-sponsored HR 3, the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion" bill in which Republicans tried to redefine rape so that it only applied to "forcible" rape so those fake rape victims would stop exploiting loopholes to cash in on fabulous gifts and prizes. Republicans pulled that part out of the bill so everyone would stop criticizing them, and then they tried to sneak it back in anyway.So Akin is really aligned with Ryan, who's been a hard liner on banning abortion for rape victims -- even "forcible" rape victims as opposed to those subjected to "gentle" rape or "friendly" rape or whatever those guys think the alternative is.
