Talk Show interviewer, Piers Morgan called Todd Akin, the Republican candidate for Senate in Missouri, a “gutless little twerp” after Mr. Akin backed out of a scheduled interview. I would have called Mr. Akin something else. 

Mr. Akin made headlines after he justified his extreme opposition to abortion by claiming that victims of “legitimate rape” [whatever that means] rarely get pregnant. It’s beyond my comprehension that someone can be so ignorant. Is this what the Republican Party has become? Tragic!
