    Missouri Republican claims 'legitimate rape' rarely results in pregnancy[W:137]

    Missouri Republican claims ‘legitimate rape’ rarely results in pregnancy – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    nswering a question about whether or not he thought abortion should be legal in the case of rape, Akin explained his opposition by citing unnamed bodily responses he said prevented pregnancy.


    "First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that's really rare," Akin said of rape-induced pregnancy in an interview with KTVI. A clip of the interview was posted online by the liberal super PAC American Bridge.


    "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down," Akin continued. He did not provide an explanation for what constituted "legitimate rape."

    Pretty amazing--I thought all republican pols undergo a mandatory 6 week crash course on the Birds and the Bees, paid for by their corporate sponsors, solely to prevent this kind of thing from happening.

    Pretty much sucks when you pay big bucks for a tool and it malfunctions. Ah well, at least foxnews will have use for him during one of their editorial spiels on "feminazis." He and palin will make a great team.

    He isn't just any Missouri Republican, he is their candidate for senate.

    And, get this, he sits on the House's science and technology committee. They figure this guy is who should be setting our nation's science policy.
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.

    Well, you can certainly bet that the Democratic senate candidate from Missouri isn't as dumb, right?

    He's like the tea party equivalent of a scientist.

    Maybe, I wonder if anyone ever thought you could tip over an island by landing people on one side. That would be worse, right?

    You understand that this GOP senate candidate was dead serious, right? He wasn't joking. He isn't even claiming he was joking. How could you compare that to an obvious joke?
