Women on the airwaves are PISSED! They are all over the moronic comments of Rep. Todd Akin (R: MO) yesterday regarding abortion for "legitimate rape" victims.
The good side of this? Claire McCaskill, whom most pundits said was in the "fight of her political career" now has a great chance to win re-election. **********Next we have Republican members of the House of Representatives carousing in the Sea of Galilee involving drinking and nudity:
A group of House Republicans were reprimanded last August for taking a late-night swim in Israel's Sea of Galilee that reportedly involved drinking and nudity. As Politico reported Sunday night, a number of Republican lawmakers on a fact-finding trip to Israel were involved in the incident, including Reps. Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.), Steve Southerland (R-Fla.), Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.), Tom Reed (R-N.Y.), Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) and Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.). Some spouses, family members, and staffers were also present. According to the report, Yoder took off his clothes before entering the reservoir, which the Bible cites as the place where Jesus walked on water. Huffington Post 08-20-12
Gotta love those awesome junkets abroad. ********* The Donald weighs in on women in general "not getting what's going on" when it comes to President Obama. In his usual subtle delivery, he states his case:
President Obama is currently giving an impromptu press conference as I type this. His comment when asked his thoughts on Akin's "legitimate rape" response.
Obama: "We shouldn't have a bunch of politicians - a bunch of whom are men - making health-care decisions for women" MSNBC 08/20/12
Yeah. Tell that to Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, Donald Trump and the GOP in general.
