Why in the fuck I am the least bit surprised some dumb fuck Republican slipped up and actually said what he thinks and then back tracked like a lightning bolt back to the clouds when called on it is beyond me.
I mean, they do it all the time.
This guy though, he really shit and stepped back in it until it made squishy noises.
Rep. Todd Akin, the newly-christened GOP Senate nominee in Missouri, said in an interview airing Sunday that “legitimate rape” rarely causes pregnancy.
Explaining his no-exceptions policy on abortions, Akin was asked why he opposes abortion even when the pregnancy is the result of rape.
“First of all, from what I understand from doctors, (pregnancy from rape) is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in a clip posted to YouTube by the Democratic super PAC American Bridge. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Akin added: “But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”
Holee Sheeit, that right there has to be one of THE most ignorant fucking things I have ever heard come out of the mouth of an adult male in my entire fucking life.
This is how this complete fucking assclown actually thinks in his head!
Oh but when the four metric tons of very deserved shit started pelting him in the face in response to his twelfth century era vocalizations, alllll of a sudden, he ” misspoke”.
Sure ya did, quite clearly at that. I could comprehend every word, no mumbling at all.
“In reviewing my off-the-cuff remarks, it’s clear that I misspoke in this interview and it does not reflect the deep empathy I hold for the thousands of women who are raped and abused every year,” he said. “I recognize that abortion, and particularly in the case of rape, is a very emotionally charged issue. But I believe deeply in the protection of all life and I do not believe that harming another innocent victim is the right course of action.”
My bold and emphasis,of course.
What he means here is that someone with just a skosh more couth and media savvy grabbed him by the ear lobe and dragged him into another room and pointed out that one does not quite exactly speak of the violent sexual and very personal attack on any woman like it’s no big deal and that she has better odds of hitting the fucking lottery than maybe say, conceiving an unwanted child as a result of the sadistic violation of her body, on the record and in public, ya fucking moron.
Now get out there and do some damage control you idiot!
Ah but in this day and age, if you say it, it is forever, especially saying it on camera.
Stepped on your dick that time asshole.
The really scary part is this fucking goober isn’t an aberration.
He is just one of thousands just like him and they vote and they run for office and they are already literally IN OUR GOVERNMENT.
Being uniquely qualified for watching the South end of a horse pulling a plow North all fucking day,instead this misogynistic peckerhead wants to be a fucking Senator.
I do hope the upstanding womenfolk of Missouri remember what this right to lifer thinks of them and their station in life according to him and the rest of those assbackwards mental dead enders just like him come November.
Now I see why the Democrat, Claire Mcaskill was pulling for this idiot in the primaries, so she could stomp a mud hole in his ass later.
