This kind of statement, of course, is political poison in national elections, and in most state elections.

But people like Franks and Akin can’t help themselves. They refuse to even try. They’re nuts.

Although what I wrote is obvious, afaic it’s still appalling.

It has been five days since the GOP has mentioned Rape.

Gee, you think?

All republicans have to do is shut the f*** up! The next time they want to try to ban abortions (wrong in and of itself, ftr) for rape victims, (way wronger, ftr) the smartest thing they can do is filibuster. Such a brazen stall tactic would make them seem far less stupid and offensive than the s*** they’ve been saying.

But dammit, they’re just too proud of their ignorance to hide it.

Republican Massachusetts Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez ridiculed Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), calling him a “moron” for claiming that women who are raped face a low risk of pregnancy.

“I have no idea what goes into the mind of a moron like that,” Gomez said to ABC News on Wednesday. “These kinds of comments only come from a moron and they shouldn’t be tolerated one bit.”

However:

“He proves that stupid has no specific affiliation,” Gomez said, referring to Franks. Gomez himself is anti-abortion.

Gee Trent. And you wonder why your party has a problem with the ladies. Maybe you shouldn’t minimize pregnancies that occur from rapes when you’ll never know what that’s like being a dude.Bad enough to be raped, even worse to be told you’re carrying your rapist’s child. Show some fucking empathy you fuck.
