Because, on the off-chance you haven’t already seen this yet, his opponent, Tom Smith (R-PA), just totally Akin’d himself straight out of the running:
The retired Armstrong County coal executive condemned Akin’s comment, then reflected on one of his own daughters conceiving a child out of wedlock.
“What that congressman said I do not agree with at all,” Smith said. “He should have never said anything like that.
“I lived something similar to that with my own family,” he went on to say. “She chose life and I commend her for that. She knew my views but fortunately for me … she chose the way I thought. Now don’t get me wrong. It wasn’t rape.”
Smith was then asked if his daughter’s unwed pregnancy and rape were similar. “No, no, no. Put yourself in a father’s position, yes, I mean it is similar,” he said.
Oh, Pennsyltucky. You’d be hilarious if you weren’t so geographically close.
