Paul Ryan: Rape is Just Another “Method of Conception.”

 

In response to a question about the “legitimate rape” / Akin debacle, Paul Ryan says that life is life and the “method of conception” — in context, remember, rape — that doesn’t change that. Which sounds an awful lot like downplaying a vicious crime, no? I suppose he is technically correct, in the same sense that punching someone in the face is also a “method of touching.”

GOP ladies, how’s the party strategy of focusing on hair and make-up re-touches as “women’s issues” working out for you?
