Over the weekend Todd Akin, GOP candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri with a sizable lead over his Democrat opponent, said stupid something so profoundly stupid, it pierced the self-induced cocoon of Last Weekend With GradSchoolGirl and made it us all scratch our heads.
“If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Don’t believe me? Watch it yourself…
His opponent, the sitting Senator Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Maleficent) quickly handed him a shovel and watched his lead in the race evaporate. In fact, she watched her opposition evaporate as Akin has said he’s leaving the race. How convenient.
My stars! Todd Akin might have been a nice fella and all, but the GOP really needs to help its candidates with basic Q&A prep.
As for Mr. Akin’s basic lack of biology skills, this ranks up there with the Old Baptist thinkers who wouldn’t let the boys and girls swim in the same pool at the same time. The girls might get pregnant, ya know.
Dear Lord, give me strength to make it through this election.
UPDATE: Akins stays in the race. This will be interesting to watch…
