They’ve nominated this guy for the United States Senate

He is expected – or had been expected – to win the Senate race in Missouri over incumbent Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill.

So, Congressman, would you allow abortion in the case of rape?

“…First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. You know I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”

  1. I’m just hearing that Akin introduced legislation to define various types of “rape” — Paul Ryan was a co-sponsor.

    Getting the female vote, and the vote of men with brains will be essential in Nov.


  2. And I thought it was only gay men who might not understand the workings of the female body. Guess not.


  3. Holy Whacko Batman!!!!


    • T4T: I just heard of another Christianist’s thoughts on that ‘theory’ – it seems we ladies harbor special ‘secretions’ that . . . oh dear elvis, I can’t go on.


  4. But – he probably handed the Senate to Democrats. It’s 48 solid/lean Dems after this – and six tossups.


  5. the GOPer’s have 24 hours I believe to decide if they keep this guy or punt…….


  6. Talk about a guy with shit for brains.


  7. Hey Moe,
    I live in Missouri and during the GOP primary between this guy , another guy and a woman (endorsed by Palin). McCaskill was running ads made to look like attack ads. Saying this guy was “too conservative.” Well it was redmeat for the GOP voters. They don’t like McCaskill and her friend Mr. Obama. So this looney tune won the primary. Me and my girlfriend were saying out loud. “Why would she run ads only for him and endorse him as “too conservative”? Well Senator McCaskill is a smart politician and she knew a crazyman when she saw one. Well played Senator. Well played.


    • Hi JP – that’s an interesting bit of local info. I’m impressed with that – McCaskill is smarter than she’s given credit for. It’s noon here and Akin hasn’t stepped down yet – I figure 12 hours more max.What do you say?


  8. So if a rape victim gets pregnant, it’s proof she wasn’t REALLY raped? Sounds like the medieval “if she drowns she’s innocent” test for witchcraft.
