Another Republican’s Head Explodes

Welcome to the Todd Akin Hall Of Fame. You remember “legitimate rape” Akin. Not about to let some guy from Missouri show him up, the Hoosier Republican (Tea Party) candidate for the U.S. Senate, Richard Mourdock , one-upped Akin with his statement that when a woman becomes pregnant during a rape “that’s something God intended.”

Later, in an explanation, he said: “Certainly, I did not intend to suggest that God wants rape, that God pushes people to rape, that God wants to support or condone evil in any way.” God was relieved.

Etch-a-Mitt was swift and emphatic in his denunciation of Mourdock: “We disagree on the policy regarding exceptions for rape and incest but still support him.” Wow! Almost as forceful as the Romney reaction to Rush Limbaugh calling Georgetown student Sandra Fluke a slut and a prostitute: “It’s not the language I would have used.”

Last week, another Tea Party type, Illinois Representative Joe Walsh, said that because of medical advances women no longer die in pregnancies and therefore no exceptions to a complete ban on abortions are necessary. Please, guys, just keep talking.

    Given the fact that if Mourdock was raped, he wouldn’t have to worry about God making him pregnant, I will suggest that he is unqualified to be making this decision.

    Brother Daybell, pray for God to impregnate their girlfriends – perhaps this will reboot their brains (if there is any left to reboot).

      Rebooting is kinda like etch-a-sketching, isn’t it? And they best not have more than one thought at a time in those tiny little brains.

    I told Mitzi “if Mitt is elected we are moving to Mexico, because I am definitely living with aliens”. After the last few months of political dicking-around ….. millions of dollars spent lying for one shitty job …. I decided not to wait. It’s been nice!
