In open mouth, insert foot news…

Republican Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri said in a televised interview yesterday that it was rare that pregnancy is the result of a ‘legitimate rape’.

“From what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Akin, who is running against Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill, said in an interview on the “Jaco Report” on KTVI-TV. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Akin later released a statement saying he “misspoke” and that he has “deep empathy” for victims of rape.

Folks these are the thoughts of an actual Republican politician.  You can believe that he is not the only one who thinks like this.  Plenty of Republicans do, they just know not to say it out loud.
