Video emerged of Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO)—who is not a doctor—explaining that it's possible for women to get abortions without actually being pregnant.
"One of the good pieces of news why we're winning this war is because there are not enough heartless doctors being graduated from medical schools. There's a real shortage of abortionists. Who wants to be at the very bottom of the food chain of the medical profession? And what sort of places do these bottom-of-the-food-chain doctors work in? Places that are really a pit. You find that along with the culture of death go all kinds of other law-breaking: not following good sanitary procedure, giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant, cheating on taxes, all these kinds of things, misuse of anesthetics so that people die or almost die. All of these things are common practice, and all of that information is available for America."
Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA)—who is a doctor—explained that he learned everything he needs to know about science from the Bible.
"God's word is true. I've come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell. And it's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior. You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I've found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth. I don't believe that the Earth's but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them. That's what the Bible says."
And, speaking of time...
Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan told Chris Wallace that there aren't enough hours in the day to explain his tax policies.
WALLACE: But I have to point out, you haven't given me the math.
RYAN: No, but you…well, I don't have the time. It would take me too long to go through all of the math. But let me say it this way: you can lower tax rates by 20 percent across the board by closing loopholes and still have preferences for the middle class. For things like charitable deductions, for home purchases, for health care. So what we're saying is, people are going to get lower tax rates.
