I wonder with all the joy of the far right and their position on women's issues if they will discuss legitimate rape, transvaginal ultrasound and 13 year olds forced to carry a fetus who is the result of the neighbor teenager raping her? Sure a lot to cheer about!

Where they can all celebrate their whiteness, dream of larger and larger tax cuts for the so-called job-creators (who haven't been creating many jobs with all the tax cuts we've given them so far), and proclaim greater liberty for all except for those whose intimate lives they wish to control (or have government control).

I wonder if "Dave" is aware of the main stream media cutting away from their coverage of the RNC Tuesday night whenever a minority spoke to play the whites only game. One made the mistake of airing An Indian American woman thinking she was "white." HAR Har HAR!!

William--as a male---is not taken seriously nor was Akins. Nice try to smear a party by the words of one. Let's look at Obama voting numerous times to kill a baby who survives abortion. With the morning after pill--in cases of rape--pregnancy would be interrupted. Unless, as women can do, it really wasn't rape in the first place so never reported.

Trotting out a few token minority speakers, when the audience (delegates) is so overwhelmingly white as to be embarrassing, will not win over the minority vote. But, that is not the Republican strategy anyway, is it? Frustrating registration and voting by minorities through restrictive new voting laws is the Republican strategy this year. Reminds me of Jim Crow laws.

Dave: You are a racist. Why is it embarrassing to be white? You watch a convention simply to see the color of the skin of people? Shame on you. I don't care what color you are, I care that you are a racist!
