Meet Todd Akin, representative-2nd congressional district, member, United States House of Representatives (R-Missouri), currently seeking the United States Senate seat now held by Democrat Claire McCaskill
He’s the guy, when asked by Mike Huckabee (a former Republican presidential candidate turned radio/television “personality”), whether he(Rep. Akin) would support abortion in cases where the woman had been raped, responded thusly:
“It seems to be, first of all, from what I understand from doctors, it’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down.”
I would love to meet the doctors from whom he gleaned this information.
I would love to take a peek at Missouri’s science curriculum.
I would like him to have to explain these comments, face-to-face, to the “illegitimately raped”.
I wish that there were some way for him to be prosecuted for his stupidity and be sentenced to work in a rape crisis center for the rest of his life.
I hope that he stays in the race.
I hope that the good people of Missouri come to the polls in record numbers and “show” him something.
I would love for him to garner one vote: his own.
I know that I’m dreaming.
Sorry that this isn’t a “funny” post. I’m just not feeling particularly funny today.
