Mo Dowd: Ryan and the Taliban

Maureen Dowd, who's been mocking Obama lately, goes wild against Akin and Ryan in tomorrow's NYC column.  Here's passage on Ryan:  "Paul Ryan, who teamed up with Akin in the House to sponsor harsh anti-abortion bills, may look young and hip and new generation, with his iPod full of heavy metal jams and cute kids. But he’s just a fresh face on a Taliban creed — the evermore antediluvian, anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-gay conservative core. Amiable in khakis and polo shirts, Ryan is the perfect modern leader to rally medieval Republicans who believe that Adam and Eve cavorted with dinosaurs."

And:  "Akin is right in saying this race should be about 'who we are as a people.' It should also be about who they are. They are people who want to be in your life, deep in your life, even when they say they don’t."  BTW, don't miss great new song, "Legitimate Rape."
