I’ve said on BMG before that when people do something wrong, we should look beyond party and call them out on it. My first thought when I read this story was “Really?” but the more I thought about it, my thought turned to ” You douche!”
I’m a Republican and I want the Senate back, but not if it means elected idots like this guy.
Missouri Congressman Todd Akin, a conservative Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, sparked a furor and earned a rebuke from Mitt Romney’s campaign after saying in an interview broadcast Sunday that women’s bodies can prevent pregnancies in ‘‘a legitimate rape’’ and that conception is rare in such cases.
Maybe he could claim a temporary insanity or he was “merely disoriented from prescription medications Ambien and Phenergan”, but how do you come back from comments like…
“It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,’’ Akin said. ‘‘If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,’’ Akin said of a rape victim’s chances of becoming pregnant.”
I know this does not involve MA politics but I’ve commented on out of control Democrats from other states (Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) is afraid that the U.S. Territory of Guam is going to “tip over and capsize” due to overpopulation.) and I had to point out this GOP ignoramus.
