Roger Simon, Nia-Malika Henderson, Lynn Sweet, Lauren Ashburn and Howard Kurtz discuss the coverage of the controversy surrounding Rep. Akin's comments as well as pundits tying him to Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan.
Todd Akin is the most honest Republican in the party. He blurted out the GOP's exact opinion of women. All of Ann Romney's phony smiling won't erase the "legitimate rape" comment. Who will decided when a woman has been legitimately raped? Oh, that's right. They won't get pregnant because the victim's body won't let that happen., Todd, did you have a dizzy spell just before you uttered this nonsense?
