You have to wonder why these "fringe" elements are getting mainstream support - even though mainstream candidates seem to want to distance themselves from them. This is on purpose. By having these men out themselves as the most extreme form of knuckle-draggers - it makes all other candidates look "reasonable".
This is much the same tactic the anti-choice zealots have used to erode the right to choice in the last twenty years. The idea that some limitations on choice are reasonable has opened the doors to all of the bullshit legislation we are seeing now. Make no mistake - the next President will seat 1-2 or more Supreme Court Justices. Women cannot afford those judges to be Antonin Scalia-ites. If anti-choice legislation makes it through Congress - a President Romney will sign it. He's already said that defunding Planned Parenthood will be a priority for his administration. The women of this country cannot afford a President Romney. You can argue that the major parties are all the same, but on this issue and the fundamental equality of women - the parties are very, very different.
No woman should EVER, EVER be forced to carry a pregnancy to term against her will - consenting to sex does not equal consent to pregnancy - and Rape is Rape. It's time the GOP learned that and losing elections is the only way politicians learn.
