All through the Republican Party’s ugly primary, we have seen bad behavior followed by an apology.  They say outrageous things. They speak from their hearts with language that  offends the electorate.  Then powerful Republicans apply pressure to the offender and we get what we are supposed to believe is a sincere apology.

Todd Akin(R-MO)  said that doctors have told him that when a woman is “legitimately  raped,” her body has a biological mechanism that “shuts the thing down” and prevents pregnancy.  Nothing could be more absurd!  Where did this loser learn about human biology?  He spoke from the heart but his forced apology is not sincere.  He doesn’t mean it!  He wants voters to forget about it and still consider him a viable candidate for the US Senate from Missouri.
