Frum: Akin's Abortion View: More Widespread in GOP Than You Think

David Frum:

“Todd Akin did not stumble his way into his cul-de-sac. The poor expression of his belief is his own fault, but the expression is not really the problem: it is the view that is the problem. Akin’s view may be outrageous, but its outrageousness is not one man’s mental spasm.”

What’s shocking isn’t Akin’s view, it’s that his view is commonplace among his fellow travelers.

Pro-life, anti-woman. Vote your conscience.
