At first, I, like many others, was “outraged” by Todd Akin’s comment. But then when I really thought about it, I concluded that the poor man simply misspoke. He used a wrong adjective. He made a grammatical error. I don’t think for a minute he really makes a distinction between “legitimate” and “illegitimate” rape – because there is none. Rape is rape. He has apologized to everyone on the planet. I think it’s time to leave him alone and let him move on with his life.
