Please nobody say "I hope he gets raped." Please nobody say "I hope he gets raped." Please nobody say "I hope he gets raped." Please nobody say "I hope he gets raped." Please nobody say "I hope he gets raped." Please nobody say "I hope he gets raped." Please nobody say "I hope he gets raped."
Wouldn't it be funny if he got raped by, like, five guys right now?
John Holmes Motherfucker
Whew! For a minute I was worried that he wouldn't be able to work in a reference to 9/11.
One of the things he loves about America is that first responders didn't require ID from a man in a wheel chair before rescuing him. Take that, Sweden!

My God, he mentions September 11th and Oliver North and Iraq as a preamble to his definition of "legitimate rape."
1 - his almost-immediate backpedal (http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/akin-on-legitimate-ra pe-comment-i-misspoke) is that he "misspoke" but he says nothing that could be read as an apology for the statement itself, an explanation as to why he thinks rape victims can't get pregnant, or his implication that rape victims shouldn't be able to get an abortion.
2 - the way to watch this video is with the Beta Closed Captioning - it's like a Bad Lip Reading crossover.
Try watching anime in japanese with it trying to translate, it's like art.

This is also the guy who said that marital rape is bullshit because 1.) it never happens and 2.) women only claim marital rape in order to get something in divorce court.
Just wait 'til he enters the Senate.
Also, he reminds me of that creepy preacher from Poltergeist II.
But what he really meant was 3.) Wives are the property of their husbands, just like in Yee Goode Olde Dayse, when Bible heroes stole their women from the pagan cities they burnt to the ground, and cannot claim rape anymore than a couch can claim assault for being intentionally sat on for hours at a time.
"wives cannot claim rape anymore than a couch can claim assault for being intentionally sat on for hours at a time."
"So what I'm saying is: sit on your wives!"
exactly, wives make excellent furniture

As a rapist who hates children, this is excellent news.

What I want to know is why all these weasels are crawling out of the woodwork NOW?
That one actually IS Obama's fault.
Scary black man running the country has all the racists and bible humpers out in force like never before.
That and he's a DEMOCRAT, so now deficits are a huge deal and socialism hides in every creeping shadow.
That and his wife wants Americans to eat healthier. NO ONE TELLS AMERICANS WHAT TO EAT EXCEPT THE COMPANIES WHO MAKE THE HIGHLY PROFITABLE CRAP FOOD THAT THEY WANT AMERICANS TO EAT!
But still, I have a hard time thinking this is all a response to Obama being president. What good does being nuttier than squirrel turds on TV do for the Republicans in this election?
Cherry Pop Culture
Granted, it's not like a lot of people regard women as people in plenty of places.
Dead, though I'm sure this isn't what happened here, you could almost read this as a stealth appeal to red-meat conservatives, who feel perenially disenfranchised because we live in 2012 and not 1840.
That is to say, any move that looks insane to you and I has to be evaluated carefully for its potential appeal to what the GOP calls its base.

What was that shit about Iraq and 9/11?
Brave men fought and died to preserve his right to tell women what to do with their uteruses.

Actually, there's some evidence that a woman is more likely to become pregnant if raped. Which really speaks ill of us as a species. As does the existence of RCongressman Akin.
Billy the Poet
Radio Controlled Ongressman Akin, if you were wondering.

Iraq and 9/11, therefore any woman who claims to become pregnant through rape is a lying whore.
|John Holmes Motherfucker - 2012-08-20 |
I may have missed it, I haven't seen anybody directly address what's most offensive about this, the idea that a "legitimate" rape victim won't get pregnant, so the woman who says she got pregnant through rape is a lying whore. THAT is the subtext of what this loathsome piece of shit is saying.
|Robin Kestrel - 2012-08-20 |
Fuck any media that refers to what he said as a "flub" (I'm looking at you, CNN). That was not a flub, no more than he "misspoke".

Here's a little tidbit: the bible does not say that life begins at conception.
(also: awesome title)

Does he think "legitimate" rape triggers the vagina dentata reflex?
He thinks introducing the concept of legitimate rape also introduces the concept of "illegitimate rape", and shears the number of abortions the US is required to use tax money for (those in response to a rape-induced pregnancy are exempt from the Hyde act.) by at least a half.
Considering that Republicans have been trying to redefine rape for a while now, and earlier this year tried to get STATUTORY RAPE, and "rape that uses drugs or other substances to incapacitate the victim" off the list of reasons for a Hyde act exemption, I guess we really shouldn't be so shocked by now.
'Scuse me, Hyde AMENDMENT. It's been a looong day.

Sarah Palin was the best Alaska could come up with. This guy is the best Missouri could come up with. RED STATES REPRESENT!
He's not the best. He is, sadly, pretty average.
But we've got Claire McCaskill, too.

I want to know who the doctors are who told him that women can merely eject unwanted sperm at will.
Either that or he got his cockamamey idea from squirting vids...

FINALLY, someone can tell me how to legitimize rapes.
I think you need a notary public.
