Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin on the thirty-two thousand American women who get pregnant from rape each year: those thirty-two thousand women must not have really been attacked, because in a “legitimate rape” women don’t get pregnant, because, well, they just don’t.
Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin on himself, being criticized for claiming the above: a “systematic attack”… “fight back against the liberal elite who continue their attacks. Stand with me.”
Stand with me. Me, me, me. I, I, I am a victim of an attack when people say they don’t like what I’ve said. But 32,000 women who get pregnant from rape each year haven’t been attacked, because it’s not a “legitimate rape.”
That’s the platform of Todd Akin for Senate. Don’t let this callous, self-centered jerk get within 30 feet of a United States Senate seat.
