A ‘ Conservative’ vision for America – ‘Exclusive: Akin ad asks for ‘forgiveness’

Your basic I say what I actually think and then when it blows up in my face, I say ‘oops, wrong words’.

He can change the words but his ‘heart’ held this ……………

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors, (pregnancy from rape) is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in a clip posted to YouTube by the Democratic super PAC American Bridge. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

His ‘apology’…………….

“Rape is an evil act. I used the wrong words in the wrong way and for that I apologize. As the father of two daughters, I want tough justice for predators.

Akin continues: “The mistake I made was in the words I said, not in the heart I hold. I ask for your forgiveness.”

As this summer progressed, I decided to see how it would go if I just cut out the online stuff, including my blog, as much as possible. I didn’t mess with Twitter, email (unless it was work-related or…

It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature – ‘Could hurricane wreak havoc at Republican convention? Will it be Isaac’?

Pat Robertson and some of the other religious right ‘preachers’ are always pounding the pulpit on how gays, single moms, Muslims and Liberals are the cause of God’s ‘payment’ via storms and other natural disasters.

To quote the leader of the Republican Party – Mitt Romney – ‘what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the Gander’.

‘For three straight simulations, NOAA’s Global Forecast System (GFS) model has tracked a tropical system right over the Florida peninsula through or close to Tampa just as the Republican National Convention is ramping up. Assuming this system – presently a little swirl in the open Atlantic – strengthens some, it will be named Isaac’.

‘Before anyone gets alarmed or excited, consider forecasts of the path and intensity of tropical systems this far out have essentially no skill. As our tropical weather specialist Brian McNoldy said earlier: “In the 5-7 day period and beyond, weather details become fairly unpredictable.”
