GOP’s “Rape” Talk Woes Continue…

bono_mack_portrait… and a few Republicans are miffed that their colleagues don’t know how to manage their mouths:

Former Rep. Mary Bono Mack (R-Calif.) questioned why [Rep. Phil] Gingrey was talking about the months-old [Todd Akin rape] comment in the first place.

“There’s no way to defend what Todd Akin said,” Bono Mack said. “You just can’t do it and you shouldn’t try to put it into a scientific context. It was a bad statement. And to try to defend it or explain someone else’s poor choice of words, it would be a fool’s errand.”

Bono Mack, who was first elected in 1998 but lost her reelection this fall, said some House Republicans don’t understand the full range of emotions associated with the abortion debate.
