Republican Morons - I Don't Think Rape Means What You Think It Means

By Guerrillamom @mariaguido
What is it with old Republican men and their non-grasp of rape?  I just can't even take it anymore. Can't. Even. Take. It.

When Richard Mourdock, Indiana's Republican Senate candidate was asked at a debate this week if he was opposed to allowing abortions in the case of rape or incest he responded, 

I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something that God intended to happen.
 Um, come again?  What the hell did you just say?

Jesus fucking Christ.  I can say that, because any higher power I believe in wouldn't condemn me to the fiery pits of hell for using some one's name in vain. She also wouldn't condone the act of rape to get some misogynistic, back-woods, ignorant political agenda pushed - would you Goddess?

I didn't think so.

While we're on the subject of total stupidity - why are we mentioning God at a political debate again?  

I don't understand.  Is there something in the water?  How can you actually be that moronic?  Did you not emerge from a woman's vagina, after she carried you for nine long months and kept you alive long enough for you to unleash your stupidity on the world?  

We've been pissing all over women's rights for so long in this country, political figures aren't even trying to not be offensive.  They're just saying the first thing that comes into their tiny little reptilian brains - then rushing through some lame non-apology the next day.  Here is his:

I am a much more humble person this morning because so many people mistook, twisted, came to misunderstand points that I was trying to make," Mr. Mourdock said. "And if, because of the lack of clarity in my words, they came away with an impression other than those that I stated moments ago, that life is precious and I abhor violence and that God abhors violence and rape — if they came away with any impression other than that, I truly regret it. I apologize that they came away, and I have certainly been humbled by the fact that so many people think that that somehow was an interpretation.

Oh, okay.  So when you said rape was something that God "intended to happen" we should have heard "God abhors violence."  Riiiiight.

Ugh.  Make it stop.
