Dumb ass of the week, vol. 1
Is it me, or is this about the dumbest thing you have ever heard?
Do you think Akin should have done a little research before making such a ridiculous claim?
Oddly enough, there are lots of Republicans who oppose abortion, but who allow for exceptions in the case of rape or incest. After all, who wants to parent the child of a rapist or a child doomed to mental and psychological problems because of “inbreeding,” as is the case with incest?
Then consider what Akin refers to as “legitimate rape.” What makes one rape more legitimate than another? And if rape can be legitimate, then how might it be illegitimate? Does this simply refer to false accusations of rape? Or rapes that simply aren’t reported, which represents quite a few of them?
To me, Akin’s comments defy intelligence and simply illustrate what many of us already know: many politicians have no clue.
I urge any of you who live in Missouri to vote for the “other guy” this election. Otherwise this jackass could be your next Senator.
