Well, I hope he wins and I hope he LEARNS to speak more prudently.

You hit it dead center. The explosion of angry voices was over the single word “LEGITIMATE”. Now, what would have happened if he has (more prudently) used the expression “FELONY rape”?
What would have been the outcry then?

The first is still a possibility. The second ain't gonna happen.

More correctly.

He should have said “actual” rape rather than “legitimate” and the controversy would have been halved. And added “some research indicates that....” before the rest of the comment.

No firestorm.

I, for one, hope Akin STFU in the future about rape and abortion.
