Piers Morgan and Sen. McCain add to the name-calling

Monday brought more insulting words. A phrase by a media host and a single word from a veteran congressman.

CNN’s Piers Morgan (pictured) called congressional candidate Todd Akin, who said “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” a “gutless little twerp.” Akin had been scheduled to appear on his evening program but canceled.

Senator John McCain (2nd picture) labeled Akin an “idiot.”

Is there any thought about the effect of such words on young people, specifically children? It’s enough already.
