    I'm so confused now. icon_cry.gif

    That's only true for "forcible" rape. (Wait, Ethel Waters was the result of a forcible rape. Oops.)

    If you take this to the logical but absurd conclusion, if it was really true that forcible rapes don't result in pregnancies, it means that those who did get pregnant somehow "wanted" it to happen (i.e. it wasn't "forcible"), because their bodies didn't do the voodoo magic that Akin et al. thought they would. Way to blame the victim in a roundabout way. icon_mad.gif

    Oh this couldn't get better. Well, as the Good Book says, "They that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind." The Republicans let lose this lunacy and now they will be consumed by it. The Repub leaders were trying so hard to distance themselves and the party from this. But this is going on news cycle after news cycle, drowning out all else. What independent, moderate and those to the left isn't going to come away with the conviction that the whole Republican Party is rife with dingbats and lunatics! This couldn't get better.

    Mike Huckabee has been treading in some seriously merky waters lately. You should have heard his ridiculous talk with Tony Perkins about how the Family Research Council is slandered by the Southern Poverty Law Center over the weekend. They spoke about how supposedly, the guard who was shot, had a chance to shoot the attacker, but didn't because God told him not to. And that was an act of love; how can a an act of love exist in a hate group? etc etc...

    Where the hell is the love when Tony Perkins and the FRC repeatedly state that homosexuals are pedophiles and all other pseudo-science junk?!!

    Mike Huckabee better back up!

    if every woman who had a baby that was the result of rape or incest, aborted it, half the world's population wouldnt' be here now.

    including 99% of the worlds monarchies

    Any politician, who had any intelligence and common sense, would keep as far away from this topic as they possibly could.

    As we have seen, a LOT of Republicans are diving in with both feet, and their mouths flapping.

    Huckabee is the same right-wing nut that organized Chick-fil-A's hate the gays day, a day supported by self-loathing gay Republicans.

    The Republican party is psycho.
