Quote:Mr Akin prompted the row over the weekend by saying in a local television interview that it was “really rare” for pregnancy to result from rape. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” he said. He later said he had meant to say “forcible rape”.

Despite disowning Mr Akin, frantically denouncing his remarks and pledging to starve him of central funds, Republican leaders were left frustrated yesterday by a devolved political system that meant unlike comparable cases in Britain, they were powerless to remove him.


This is causing quite a row rofl.gif

I'm slack-jawed at the ignorance.

This dude must have cut Biology 101 as well as Grammar 101R

Rape ~ forcible rape ~ an unnecessary adjective.

And to think ~ people actually think this bozo should be a leader...of anything.


The world IS run by C students.

This guy is in the same idiot class as Joe Biden. Both are too senile to hold office.
