Akin Staying In As Entire Conservative World Says Get Out

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:30 pm

RINOs like Coulter, Levin, Hannity, and Malkin are saying get out. But apparently Akin wants to stay in — showing the same good judgment that led him to make that rape comment.

Hey, it’s just the Senate.

P.S. McCaskill says: don’t go!

Romney and Ryan Distance Selves from “Legitimate Rape” Comment

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:58 am

Here’s Todd Akin questioning whether women really get pregnant from a “legitimate rape”:

Romney and Ryan initially distanced themselves through a spokesman:

A spokeswoman for Mitt Romney wrote late Sunday that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee and his running mate, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, did not share Rep. Todd Akin’s sentiments on rape.

“Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan disagree with Mr. Akin’s statement, and a Romney-Ryan administration would not oppose abortion in instances of rape,” Romney campaign spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg wrote.

And now Romney has been more direct in his denunciation:

“Congressman’s Akin comments on rape are insulting, inexcusable, and, frankly, wrong,” Romney said. “Like millions of other Americans, we found them to be offensive.”…

Unclear whether Akin will be booted off the ticket in a last-minute maneuver.

Comment away.

Top Gun Director Commits Suicide

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:20 am

By jumping off the Vincent Thomas bridge, which I cross every day.

“Top Gun” director Tony Scott fatally jumped off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro on Sunday afternoon, according to Los Angeles police sources.

. . . .

Law enforcement sources said several witnesses saw Scott, the brother of director Ridley Scott, climb over a fence on the bridge and jump off.

The coroner’s office identified him Sunday evening.
Scott was a respected action-movie director who also made “Enemy of the State,” “Beverly Hills Cop II” and “Crimson Tide.”

He reportedly left a suicide note behind at his office.

A sad story. Condolences to the family.
