Listen, I don’t think our platform is the issue. I think a lot of times it’s some of these biologically stupid things that people say, you know, that I believe caused a lot of the problems.
RNC chairman Reince Priebus • Diagnosing the problems faced by the Republican Party, which ostensibly played a role in their sound defeat at the voting booth last November, in an interview with Radio Iowa a couple days ago. Piebus’ words (a clear reference to damaging remarks by Senate candidates Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock on rape, among others) could be suggestive of the RNC’s strategic thinking on improving their chances going forward — less emphasis on new policies, perhaps, than on using more tactful rhetoric. source

And if another Republican man says anything about rape other than it is a horrific, violent crime, I want to personally cut out his tongue. The college-age daughters of many of my friends voted for Obama because they were completely turned off by Neanderthal comments like the suggestion of “legitimate rape.”
Karen Hughes, former George W. Bush adviser • Voicing her frustrations with the rhetoric on rape and women’s rights from some members of her party leading up to last Tuesday. As both a woman and Republican, Hughes comes by the intensity of her disdain naturally — no less than two GOP Senate candidates in eminently winnable races, Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, had their chances derailed by high-profile, tone-deaf and offensive comments on rape and pregnancy. The Obama campaign maximized its advantage with female voters to staggering effect this cycle, beating Mitt Romney among single women by 38%. source

I can’t even finish this sentence without getting dumber”: Tina Fey didn’t mince words when discussing recent comments by relatively prominent Republicans on the topic of rape while speaking at the Center for Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala in New York City. Check out the 75 second clip for a brief clip of Fey’s thoughts on redefining rape, Richard Mourdock, and Todd Akin. source

I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God. I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.
Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, diving headfirst into controversy with the above remarks on abortion, just weeks shy of Election Day. Mourdock was asked to explain his views on abortion by a questioner during his final debate against Rep.Joe Donnelly, and Libertarian candidate Andrew Horning. All three of them oppose abortion rights, but neither Donnelly or Horning went quite so far — Mourdock’s policy position on this issue, setting aside his highly incendiary language, is in step with the GOP’s party platform, though not with the Romney campaign’s recent claim of support for rape and incest exceptions. source
