Just Another Idiot In Office

The embodiment of everything that’s sick about America. US Republican Congressman Todd Akin, was asked recently if abortion should be permissible for women victims of rape.

Well you know, people always want to try to make that as one of those things, well how do you, how do you slice this particularly tough sort of ethical question. First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. 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.”[1]

Until Americans stop voting these pseudo-religious idiots into high office, this nation will never recover its integrity, or its standing in the world.

  1. As someone who is British, I can’t think of any of our politicians who would be stupid enough to say this (although I suspect that one or two might think it) – the only one in living memory might have have been Nicholas Fairburn who died some 20 years since and his excuse would have been that he was a genuine reactionary, an advocate and a serious drinker. His saving grace was I suppose an absence of the po faced religious hypocrisy of bigots like Congressman Akin.

  2. From Wiki on this travesty of a human being:
    ” in 1984 he earned a Master of Divinity degree at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis.”

    So this is how a Master of the Divine conducts himself?

  3. Apologies I forgot Gorgeous George Galloway who has defended Assange’s alleged actvities as not being rape.
