"If You're a Guy, and You Throw the Word 'Legitimate' in Front of Rape, You're in Trouble"

What would've been the proper adjective for Akin to use to modify the word "rape?" Do other crimes need modifiers too now? Actual murder? Actual burglary? Actual theft? We need the word "actual" to distinguish these crimes from the fake ones?

You'll be happy to know lunacy hasn't been the norm on the conservative airwaves since the shooting. The response, especially among local conservative talk show hosts, has been more muted, respectful of the victims.

Jason Salzman | Posted 04.18.2012 | Denver
Jason Salzman

I've been thinking that journalists should add a "civility" beat to their shrinking offerings. At least they should give a little extra air or ink (literal and digital) to challenge politicians when they hit below the belt.

Jason Salzman

You'd expect to get plenty of meaninglessness from a two-hour event featuring 10 yappers skilled at yapping. How could a panel of 10 normal people converse intelligently in such a setting, much less 10 talk-radio hosts?
