It was clearly a legitimate rape since his campaign shut down the attempts to prevent his candidacy from aborting.
 
2012-09-17 01:35:33 PM  
"God can increase," she said, citing the "Feeding of the 5,000" - a Gospel miracle in which Jesus uses five small barley loaves and two small fish to feed a multitude. The campaign will take small contributions, "respect them, and say 'God, multiply it. Make it pay,' " Lulli Akin said. "It brought us through the primary, same way. We're gonna see it again, because God wants to be honored."

Holy fark, some people are retarded. Religion just lets people be a stupid and unaccountable as they want.

It would be completely immoral and implausible, but people who make statements belittling the seriousness of rape should be raped themselves. Something for them to reflect on before they go making ridiculous, careless, and inhumane statements the next time.

I think Democrats should send a slice of bread and a fish to the Akin campaign.

Lulli has no idea what rape really is.

I'm not so heartless as to wish that on her, but goddamn it's hard not to with some of these people.

Flounder.

Lulli Akin said that efforts to push her husband out of the race threaten to replace elections "by the people and for the people" with "tyranny, a top-down approach." She added, "Party bosses dictating who is allowed to advance through the party and make all the decisions-it's just like 1776 in that way."

You know, I don't completely disagree with her. I spent some time a few weeks ago trying to explain to an old Democrat why so many people my age are independents. Not because there's a chance in hell that we might ever vote for Republicans, but because we feel the two party system is broken.

The closest I will *EVER* get to choosing who is President of the United States is by hectoring my family in New Hampshire to vote the way I want them to.

In other news, she at least recognizes rape as a bad thing.

so instead of letting his comments die or fade away and try to regain lost ground, they keeping bringing up "rape" to keep it fresh in everyone's mind.

The colonialists didn't get pregnant, so it wasn't really a rape rape

In 2012, time travel was invented. From that day forward, whenever anyone made an asinine comment about tyranny, they were sent back in time so that me and my trusty axe could show them what tyranny really was. I am George Washington, and I am a looper.

he did say that there is a "this tremendous sense of uprising I feel among the people I talk to."

Is that an ultrasonic rape wand in your pocket, or are you just pleased to see me?

Was it rape or was it rape rape? Go be stupid in public elsewhere, woman.
 
2012-09-17 01:45:29 PM  
I'm no theologian, but isn't there something a bit blasphemous about saying God will treat your political contributions the way He treated Jesus with the loaves and fishes?

Also, I'm no Theologian, but will Malcolm Jamal Warner be back this fall on "Community?"

You would probably have foreveralone's belittling rape just so they could get some human contact.

Feed them to sharks instead.

Neither do I on that particular point, but isn't it quite convenient this revelation on her part is made once her husband's own political career became in jeopardy.

He was asking for it. He should try good-feelings-ing it away, since it's legitimate and all that.

"I had pancakes this morning. I felt raped, because pancakes are like rape. It was a small rape, however Jesus multiplied the rape in much the same way he multiples fish and loaves. I was raped multiple times.....or at least it felt like it. It was the rapiest rape of all time. My personal relationship with Jesus is one of rape....super rapey rape. I know the pain of Lucretia....for I am a victim of rape. Rape I say.....did I mention the rape?"

The Akins really like rape.

God can't make campaign contributions because he's not a person (or even a corporation). This is why he became flesh in the person of Jesus Christ... so that he may comply with our campaign finance laws.

Yeah, she's an idiot with an asshole for a husband for sure, but the guy won a primary and now the party wants to dump him for someone else.

Either admit that the primary elections are nonsense, or stick with the person who got the most votes. No fng mulligans.

You know, back in highschool, when my EXbff betrayed me and I said the biatch stabbed me in the back? I meant that. I mean, it was like she legit took a real knife and totes plunged it into my back. It was that bad. I should have gone to the ER because of how bad that skank stabbed me in the back.

Akin's understandably upset. He got himself all dressed up for the Republicans and said all the things they wanted to hear. He spent a lot of money and it's not like he wanted something unreasonable in return. Then at the last minute, they suddenly changed their minds and said no. Well, Todd Akin's not going to be made to look like a fool by these people. He wants whatever he can get out of the Republicans and he's not going to pull out until he is satisified.
