Empathy!

The GOP cannot stop thinking and talking about rape:

“I lived something similar to that with my own family,” [Pennsylvania Senate candidate Tom Smith] said. He then described his daughter’s out-of-wedlock pregnancy — from consensual sex.

“She chose life, and I commend her for that. She knew my views but fortunately for me … she chose the way I thought. Now don’t get me wrong. It wasn’t rape.”

Smith affirmed that he believed his daughter’s pregnancy from consensual sex was similar to a rape. “Put yourself in a father’s position, yes, I mean it is similar.”

Being a father is like being raped, when your daughter makes her own decisions, got it?

Dude, I know you believe It Is All About You, but your kid decided to screw someone; you decided to screw everyone when you ran for office.

(TPM)

    A father learning that his daughter is about to be penalized by nature for her promiscuity, is akin to rape only in a mind that is too egotistical to realize that her pregnancy is probably more the fault of his efforts to suppress all true discussions about sex and birth control within the schools, than her boyfriend’s virility.
