By now, you’ve heard about Missouri Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin’s views on rape and his bizarre belief that women have some sort of magical pregnancy defense that kicks in if a rape is “legitimate.”
Never mind asking what the heck he’s talking about or where he got such wacko ideas in the first place. The man has been asked by everyone from the GOP leadership on down to his local constituents to get out of the race for the sake of the future of not only the Republican Party but of the country, and he decides to stay in.
I remain confident that in a party-to-party comparison of idiots, the Democratic Party still has the Republican Party outnumbered at least 4-to-1. However, in any gathering of loose cannons, this guy is the Death Star, and he’s about to blow up planet Romney-Ryan, our last hope for restoring freedom to the galaxy.
And if that’s not bad enough, he’s got backup.
Rep. Steve King of Iowa had to weigh in on the Akin thing, and during an interview on Monday, he told the reporter that he hadn’t heard of instances in which young women become pregnant through statutory rape or incest, according to CBS.
“Well I just haven’t heard of that being a circumstance that’s been brought to me in any personal way, and I’d be open to discussion about that subject matter,” King said.
By Tuesday, after what was no doubt a sound thrashing by his constituents and in the press, King recanted, said he was taken out of context, repudiates Akin, etc. Of course, the damage to the GOP was already done.
Also on Monday, Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association, host of the radio show “Focal Point,” one-upped King and said Akin was “absolutely right” about women not getting pregnant from rape.
“There’s a very delicate and complex mix of hormones that take place — that are released — in a woman’s body, and if that gets interfered with, it may make it impossible for her or difficult in that particular circumstance to conceive a child,” Fischer said.
I would just like to say to Rep. King and Mr. Fischer: Please stop trying to help. Thank you for wanting to pitch in, but please just go back to playing Parcheesi or whatever it is you do at Senility Acres and leave the fight to restore the country to sane people.
Of Mr. Akin, I would like to ask one question: How much is Barack Obama paying you?
As Ann Coulter pointed out, an unusually large number of Democrats contributed to Akin’s campaign. Supporters of his Democratic opponent, Claire McCaskill, spent $2 million to make sure he was the guy she would be running against, according to the New York Times. Many Democrats crossed over party lines to vote for Akin.
With so much on the line nationally, you better believe the Chicago thugs are out and about rigging as many races as they can to make things come up in Obama’s favor. Buying off a GOP candidate to throw an election in such a public way that it could mean the Democrats keep the Senate and the Oval Office sounds like it’s right up a Chicago alley.
If this is not a plan, then Romney better check the locks at Arkham Asylum, because the inmates are running loose.
