Don’t Ever Try to Tell Me There Isn’t a Double Standard.

Todd Akin had some ill-conceived and outdated ideas about the rate at which women conceive in the aftermath of rape, of which he’s been brutally disabused and for which he’s apologized.

On the other hand, the President of the United States holds the belief that a “fetus, or child — however you want to describe it” who has the ill grace to show “movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead” after an abortion procedure should be denied medical care until they finally cooperate by dying, a position for which he’s never apologized and probably still holds.

Yes, the words inside the quotes are the exact words spoken by then Illinois-State-Senator Barack Obama during a floor discussion of Illinois’ Born-Alive Infant Protection act. God knows, I certainly couldn’t have made them up.

Yet where is the outrage directed?

Joe Biden, You Handsome Devil, You!

Funny typo in this Politico article.

A LexisNexis search shows that such outlets as CNN, “Imus in the Morning,” National Review, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, POLITICO, The Independent and the Sacramento Bee have all referred to Biden as “handsome.” (Emphasis added.)

Unless all those sources really have referred to Joe Biden as handsome, which would just be disturbing on many levels.

*Screen cap.
