My grandmother has always told me, “There are two things you never discuss with strangers: religion and politics.” So far, I'm proud to say that, for the most part, I've managed to stay away from those two topics on PBK.... until now. Two words: Todd Akin. Two more words: FUCKING IDIOT. If you've never heard this name before, Google him. I'm sure his name is a pretty popular search term after Sunday.

Todd Akin is possibly one of the biggest nitwits among the GOP. This disrespectful senseless irrational insensitive worthless Missourian piece of human shit had the nerve to say that, in instances of “legitimate rape,” a woman's body can block an unwanted pregnancy. **facepalm** But wait, there's more. He says, “But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something: I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not attacking the child.”
Firstly, what in the hell is “legitimate rape”? Is there a such thing as an illegitimate rape? How does one differentiate? I'm baffled. Secondly, how can he even fix his old ass lips to say that the rapist should be punished and not the child? Hypothetical situation: Your 12-year old daughter gets raped, and, God forbid, she gets pregnant. Instead of allowing her the choice to abort this unwanted unplanned human growing inside of her, you FORCE her to become an unwed mother in middle school? Wow. Then, let's say that her rapist never gets caught. So who gets punished? Only the victim—a poor pre-teen who will probably be slut-shamed and ridiculed by her peers.
After new sites published his ignorant, insensitive comments, he claims that he “misspoke.” No, bitch, you were straight up wrong. Hey Akin, please explain your comments to the thousands of Bosnian and African rape victims. Can you explain how so many mulatto children were born to African slaves? I can wait.
On Tuesday, Akin took to his Twitter account. He tweets, “I apologized but the liberal media is trying to make me drop out...” Liberal media? Even your fellow Republicans want you to just shut the fuck up and exit the race. You're an embarrassment to your own political party, you ass.

What's even sadder than this asshole apologizing and blaming “liberals” for the ridicule he's receiving, is that people are still supporting him. I wouldn't support someone who wants to cut on funding for education, Medicare, and abortion. That's just me, though. I can't tell anyone who to vote for, so I'm just going to end this rant with PLEASE VOTE.
