Vocabulary loses elections

Just a brief comment.  In the next General Election, the new Republican handbook should clearly state that the words “abortion” and “rape” should never pass a candidate’s lips. Todd Akin was a shoe-in against Claire McCaskell until he decided to propose “legitiment rape.” Richard Mourdock was running well until he decided that rape was “God’s intent.”  As a result, Republicans lost one Senate seat and could not gain another. Speak one word or the other, and the Republican candidate will sink into The Abyss [excellent article from London].

Just FYI:  women make up 51% of the electorate these days.  They have a voice. They vote.
