Rep. Steve King (R – IA) has come-out in support of Rep Todd Akin (R – MO) after Akin said women don’t become pregnant as a result of “legitimate rape”. “Well I just haven’t heard of that being a circumstance that’s been brought to me in any personal way,” King said in an interview with KMEG-TV.
Some are speculating these recent revelations of the conservative belief that women can’t become pregnant as a result of rape may tie in to the theme of their upcoming nominating convention: “Hey, Don’t Look At Me!”
Fox News personality Mike Huckabee announced he will not seek the 2012 presidential candidacy for the Republican Party. “All the factors say go, but my heart says no,” Huckabee, who was considered the GOP frontrunner in several Fox News polls, said on his Fox News Channel show. His heart problems probably include taking-on GOP poster-boy Newt Gingrich, President Obama’s popularity since killing Osama bin Laden, and the usual ephemeral life-span of snowballs in Hell.
Ron Paul immediately announced he will run for the third losing time.
