I shouldn’t have to say this, but given that he’s going to be held up as what every conservative believes, here’s the denouncement.
What Todd Akin said was ridiculous, medically unsound, and despicable. No one in his right mind believes that a woman won’t get pregnant if she’s raped.
If we lose Missouri in the general election, it will be because Todd Akin is a douchebag. He deserves to lose his election for being so stupid, both stupid for believing this and stupid for saying it. If he somehow manages to ride on the conservative wave and win the Senate seat he’s running for, there had better be a plan in place for replacing him as soon as possible, preferably through resignation and replacement if possible. The GOP does not need this sort of anti-woman asshattery in its leadership.
Anyone who defends or minimizes what Akin said is deserving of every bit of scorn that’s heaped on them.
