That double standard strikes again
Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican candidate for the Senate from Missouri, deserves all the condemnation he's getting for his idiotic remarks about rape- and more.
But why is there a different standard for Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn,), who once joked on Saturday Night Live about raping Lesile Stahl?
Is this acceptable, simply becaus Franken is a liberal Democrat? And what business does the Obama campaign have trying to exploit Akin's stupid comments while Franken is campaigning for the president?
