The staunching anti-abortion Buerkle was a co-sponsor of HR 3, the 2011 abortion law that easily passed the Republican-controlled House and originally included language that would outlaw federally-funded abortion coverage except in the case of "forcible rape." (That phrase is what Akin says he meant when he said "legitimate rape.")

Replacing one misogynistic phase meant to minimize the very real and serious impact of rape on victims for another misogynistic phase meant to minimize the very real and serious impact of rape on victims doesn't really help your case there buddy, but I'm not exactly surprised you tried.

You seem like a horrible, horrible person just like everyone else who attached their name to your horrible, horrible bill.

Keep pushing their noses in it. It's their shiat.

I don't understand why the GOP is so angry with Akin; all he did was articulate their beliefs.

Seems like her campaign just got legitimately raped.

At this stage of the game, you'd have to have the IQ of an eggplant to be swayed by a political ad.

/Granted, the ad producers do get paid to know the target audience.

Akin is such a bad candidate that he's now dragging other tickets down with him by association?

SoupJohnB: ted, the ad producers do get paid to know the target audience.


While my mind was already made up, the Obama commercial that is *Literally* just 60 or so seconds of Romney's 47% speech, placed over images of Americans it applies to (Veterans, seniors, many firemen/police), is pretty goddamn devastating.

In the world of republicans, if you don't fight your rapist, then you are a whore who deserved it. If you do fight back, then you aren't being lady like and deserved it.

They're supposed to hide their beliefs while on the stump and only reveal them with extremist legislation after they've won. He got in the way of their plan.

Well seriously. Akin is upset because he thinks everyone misinterpreted "legitimate" as in "acceptable." That's not the problem. The problem is that he thinks he - a crusty old man - gets to define whether an assault really counted as rape or not, and then gets to decide whether or not the victim gets the healthcare she wants as a result.

And he does't know much about human anatomy.

There was a new quote from him the other day, in which he defended the right of employers to pay people less for being female, or nonwhite. Claimed the government had no right to interfere in true freedom.

And again he will be criticised by his own party for saying what they actually believe.

It's an amazing thought process:

"OK lads it turns out our beliefs are so backward and asinine that they make us completely unelectable"
"So what's our plan to represent what voters really want and capture the election?"
"Lie about what our beliefs are"

I know Ann Marie Buerkle. I went to law school with Ann Marie Buerkle. She is more misogynistic and has a more stone-aged philosophy than Akin. I can't stand Dan Maffei, but I'm voting for him.
Ann Marie is crazy.

This is what the GOP wants....it's part of their farking platform so it doesn't matter what district they will all toe the line on the wrong side of the rape issue.
 
2012-10-02 09:48:09 AM
What truly is just sad....I fully expect Akin to win.

/Lives in Missouri
//Kansas is starting to infect us...HARD
///Never underestimate the level of McCaskill Hate
////Will not live here much longer, given the level of DERP that seems to grow exponentially.

At least there was a moment or two where it seemed unlikely.
If it happened here in Oklahoma we'd already have some schools renamed to Akin.
