Todd Akin struck multiple times in course of inner party pinata partying, as reported here, here, here and here. UPDATE: Even here, stated as it is.
The Republicans' latest game plan is premised as: Hit the pinata for phrasing rigid choice-bating choice-hating sentiment in ill clothed wording, while the same-party pinata bashers are full of the same stuff as the pinata.
As it has been, as it is, and as it will be for that party's pandering for votes from an inner-party bloc. Has Santorum or Bachmann yet said a thing about Akin?
While whacking at their favorite inner-party pinata seems to be a new GOP sport, the GOP's platform inquisitors came up with this, which seems to oppose RU-486 morning after relief, as well as having no rape, incest, or maternal health exception. Draconian? Calling it that in a sense insults Draco, it being worse.
The platform reads:
Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.
Pretty stupid, eh? Repugnant? Yes. Yet, more inquisitorial than tinfoil hat.
But wait, there's ample tinfoil too.
Is it getting hard to take? Try lubricating it with a bit of oil.
