Todd Akins conceding
This news was almost as good as Obama winning.
Todd Akins is the Missouri Republican congressman who informed a reporter that a woman’s body can prevent pregnancy after a “legitimate” rape. What’s even more sweet is that Akins was ousted by a woman. Senator Claire McCaskill (D) took his seat.
Richard Mourdock, the Indiana GOP U.S. Senate candidate, fell on his face for basically the same reason. Mourdock declared that he opposed aborting pregnancies conceived in rape because “it is something that God intended to happen.” Joe Donnelly (D) took his seat.
Here is my cool internet find of the day – actually, for me it’s the find of the year!… Doonesbury on Slate website. I love myself some Doonesbury. I am sure many of you already know about it, but I didn’t. Via a friend on Facebook, came to check it out and holy cow! Talk about where to go is you need a Doonesbury fix! Plus the graphical layout and presentation is superb by using what looks to be actual items, such as the Sunday funny page with the bottom ripped; a matchbook that I could almost reach out and pick up; and a bunch of other stuff. If you haven’t been there, check it out.
Are you raising your eyebrows like I am? Republican Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall – who previously opposed a gay judge nominee by stating “Sodomy is not a civil right” – said at a press conference in 2010 that god is taking “vengeance” on parents who have had abortions by making their other children disabled:
“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children.”
Do You Suffer From S.L.U.T.- Sexually Liberated Uterine Tendencies? If so, then here is the treatment that will help…. “Legitimate Rape.” You see, “Legitimate Rape” helps your body with it’s natural method of preventing pregnancy – it shuts down.

Here are a couple of videos from a show called “Totally Biased” and they are hilarious – and I mean ROTFLMFAO!
The first video, “Todd Man Out,” is about Todd Akin and his moronic comment that women’s bodies shut down ovulation during rape.
The second video, “Tutors Without Borders,” is targeting those people who are Obama-haters and have their signs to prove it. Problem is, they can’t spell! Sounds like the Tea Party to me. And in honor of this video, I have included some photos of signs with misspelled words, and signs with completely the wrong word used.

“Legitimate rape.” Every since Senate-hopeful Tod Akin (R-MO) said those infamous words, the media and people all over have blown up. When Akin claimed that women’s body “shut down during rape,” he mentioned that this information was from doctors. That had me wondering from that very moment… either Akin’s was flat out lying, or there is some quack out there. Come to find out that it’s neither.
The Raging Grannies are awesome! Here is where Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are going wrong. Ryan, with his budget plan that eventually will wipe out social security and medicare, assumes that the elderly now do not care since it won’t affect most of those over. You are so so so wrong, Ryan.
Then, without prior waring, Representative Todd Akin (R-MO) spewed out the most absolutely ridiculous statement statement I’ve ever heard, about women’s bodies will shut down to avoid becoming pregnant will be raped. Oops, pardon me… “legitimate” rape. (Is there such a thing as “illegitimate” rape?”
Recently, Representative Todd Akin (R-MO), a Tea Party-backed candidate for US Senate, recently said:
“From what I understand from doctors, pregnancy [as a result of rape], is really rare. If it’s a “legitimate” rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Below is a video of the interview. Akin is now back-peddling and trying to claim that is not what he meant. Well, it appears to me that is EXACTLY what he meant. It wasn’t a slip of the tongue… he carefully and precisely chose his words.
