Wow. Republicans are really scared of this issue:

"You know, I had about five minutes with him, and we got through a fair amount of material, actually, in that five minutes," Boyd said on air. "The one stipulation to the interview was that I not ask him about abortion or Todd Akin -– he’s the Missouri Republican who created a firestorm after saying women’s bodies shut down in a legitimate rape to prevent pregnancy. I did ask him about health care, the female vote, and energy."

It's a real shame that the campaigns can control access to politicians like this, but good on Shaun Boyd for publicly calling the Romney campaign out on it.
