  •  Rep. Akin should meet the young woman I did (6+ / 0-)

    She was raped by Guatemalan paramilitaries while her father, a pastor who had spoken out in favor of human rights for indigenous Guatemalans, was forced to watch at gunpoint and died of a heart attack shortly thereafter.

    Is that a "legitimate" enough rape for Rep. Akin, or does it take something more "legitimate" than that to activate these mysterious "defenses?" But hey, if the woman is killed during the rape, she won't get pregnant.  Maybe that's what it takes to make a rape "legitimate" in Rep. Akin's eyes.

    I wish I could personally ask each voter in Missouri, "Is THIS piece of garbage what you want representing you in the United States Senate?"

    Bin Laden is dead. GM and Chrysler are alive.
