Clip of Sean Duffy on The Real World
Pssst. Sean. You don't actually have a vagina.
This explains ... everything:
Questioner: “I’m wondering about whether or not Rep. Duffy if you would support the legislation that’s in the Wisconsin legislature called ‘Right To Know Your Unborn Child’. And if, because you’ve said in the past that you are 100% pro-life, would you support federal legislation to require trans-vaginal ultrasounds for pregnant women? And if not, then why?

Duffy: “I don’t know what a trans-vaginal ultrasound is?”

Questioner: “You don’t?”

Duffy: “No … I haven’t had one.”

[Laughter from the room]

Questioner: “It’s been in the news …”


Questioner: Right now it’s being discussed on the Wisconsin level, I realize you’re not involved in that but is this something that you would support on the federal level?

Duffy: I haven’t heard of it. And just like I told you I’m pro life, and I know that you are too, but I’m not willing to say I’ll support what you’re talking about because I haven’t seen the bill, even though we’re probably in agreement on that issue.

Questioner: So you don’t know what it is?

Duffy: No.

Questioner: Oh, OK, thank you.

At the risk of stating the obvious, if you don't even know what a transvaginal ultrasound is, and apparently aren't even clear on who can have them (hint: people with vaginas), maybe you shouldn't be trying to legislate vaginas. Or even talk about them. Unless, of course, you want to end up like Todd "magic lady parts" Akin.
