First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down… Let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work, or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.

Missouri Rep. Todd Akin, on abortion and rape. He’s running against Sen. Claire McCaskill in Missouri.

There are no words that can adequately explain my rage and disgust at his claim and ignorance of basic biology. He’s since apologized, claiming he “misspoke.” Um, what the hell did you mean to say?!

According to TPM, Akin is currently leading Sen. McCaskill by a margin of 49.7 percent to 41.3 percent.

You know what to do, Missouri. Keep this assclown from holding legitimate office.

"Legitimate rape"… I just can’t with these Teapublicans tonight.
