Todd Akin (R-Dumbfuckistan)
The GOPs Senate nominee in Missouri, Rep. Todd Akin, is fluent in wacked-out crazy:
“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in an interview posted Sunday. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
What "ways" might those be? Akin must be talking to Michele Bachmann's 7-foot doctor. But even if a woman's magical defenses against rape-caused pregnancies fails, fuck you. Or something.
“Let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work, or something,” Akin said. “I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”
There's not a single assertion made above that is accurate. Not one.

It's this kind of crazy that has put Sen. Claire McCaskill back in the game.
