Cashill: Is It Time to Revive the Epithet ‘Baby-Killer’?

“For too long, the right has been playing defense.  In 2012, on one specific occasion, Mitt Romney’s failure to take the offense cost the GOP and the nation dearly.  In August of that year, Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin made an awkward but innocuous comment about rape and abortion.  The major media did what they inevitably do when they smell blood: turn to the serial apologists in the soft center of the Republican Party. Said Romney, then the Republican nominee, ‘Congressman Akin’s comments on rape are insulting; inexcusable; and, frankly, wrong.  Like millions of other Americans, we found them to be offensive.’ Suppose Romney had gone on the offensive and said, ‘A credibly accused rapist is giving the keynote speech at the Democratic convention in two weeks.  That same convention will memorialize a lifelong sexual predator who allowed a young woman to drown in his car to preserve his political future.  And you want me to denounce a decent, God-fearing man for his inelegant comments about rape?  No, not happening, and if the truth hurts, put some ice on it.'”

Then the stubbornly pro-Brexit ones who were rightly disgusted by the shaming sell-out deal May had cobbled together with her virulently Remainer civil servants were given the same choice Rommel was in 1944: cyanide pill or slow career death.”
