    The Left side proved it was a total joke when they let Al Franken take a seat...

    And they had to steal the votes to do it.

    Perhaps you can tell us just when rape is and is not a joke?

    Since Franken was both an SNL writer and a Senatorial candidate, is he held to a lower standard than is Akin?

    I was taught that rape is never a joke but apparently that's just me.

    Over the years SNL has offered comedic skits and satire, often in bad taste. One can choose to watch it or not. I do not.
    Statements made by candidates for public office are given much closer scrutiny, and taken seriously, as they should be. I'm sure a search of the public record would reveal many, many cases of candidates and those already elected making spurious, inappropriate and down right stupid remarks, from both sides.
    Who knows, one day Leno or Letterman or Beck may run for public office, (weirder things have happened, Reagan, Swartzenegger (sp) Ventura)? Even the messiah Romney now contradicts himself...
    I think the righties trying to latch on to Franken's past, as well as Clinton's, as hypocrisy is grasping at straws.

    Whereas I agree with the first statement, if there any messianic figure in this race it would have to be the current occupant of the white house.

    Both Romney and Obama have publicly said that Akin's comments were inappropriate. So, shouldn't we consider this particular "issue" (if it ever was one) a "wash" for voting preferences?
