News That Will Drive You To Drink

He’s legitimately dead.

Former U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, a conservative Missouri Republican whose comment that women’s bodies have a way of avoiding pregnancies in cases of “legitimate rape” sunk his bid for the U.S. Senate and became a cautionary tale for other GOP candidates, died late Sunday. He was 74.

Maybe I’m harsh, but I wished for this small-minded theocrat EVERYTHING he wished for us, and look! We got our wish!

    On the day that J Edgar Hoover died, WBCN in Boston played David Crosby’s Long Time Gone without comment. It seems just as appropriate today.

    I am sorry for the loss, as to the people who loved him. Beyond that, I’m enjoying the humor here, because he has it coming to him.

    I never understood what “legitimate rape” was supposed to be. I was under the impression that all rape was illegitimate. Yeah, I understand the anti-science claim of the congressman that a woman’s body is supposed to shut down the implantation process, but it doesn’t. Somewhere there’s a ten year old pregnant rape victim from Ohio who is suffering. Her parents had to take her to Indiana to get the appropriate healthcare. I really hope things work out for her, but not only did the rapist traumatize her Ohio did as well…

      Yeah, you do, as in, “She led me on, I mean, like, ya know man, she was just askin’ for it.” In other words, if she complains after the man “has his way with her” in such a scenario, it’s a freebie for the guy because “no way was that a rape, man, Whaddaya talkin’ about, she asked for it, see?

      It underscores just how primitive Akin was, bein a good man-o-Gawd and all.

    Never fear, his replacement is here.

    MISSOULA — A former Montana State House Majority Leader and candidate for a potential swing Montana state Senate race said in an email to fellow legislators Monday that a woman’s womb serves no specific purpose to her life or well-being.
    The comment was made by Rep. Brad Tschida, R-Missoula, who is running for Senate District 49, which Democrats won by a narrow margin in the last two elections.

    The scariest thing of all is that his rhetoric has now become “legitimate” discourse on the anti-choice side.
