Republican Jackass of the Week

Meet Richard Mourdock of Indiana.

This is the far rightwing fringe candidate who beat longtime, well-respected Republican Richard Lugar last spring in the Indiana primaries. He will now run in the general election in hopes of becoming senator of Indiana.

This Teabagger assclown first received attention last spring when he said "bipartisanship ought to consist of Democrats coming to the Republican point of view".

Got that? Compromise means doing things his way.

Now he's said, "Life is that gift from God that I think even if life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen."

Got that, women? If you're raped and become pregnant, it's a "gift" and your god "intended it to happen."  This extremist believes abortion should be banned in all cases, even in the case of rape and incest.

So if you are raped in a parking garage, don't even think of an abortion. Our Jackass of the Week wants to legislate forcing you to take that rapist's pregnancy to term.

And he's not alone.

You remember Todd Akin, another far rightwing Teabagger and high school biology failure, who said, "If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

Got that, women? There's apparently an invisible, magical eject button in the female anatomy that simply won't let you get pregnant if you're raped. Nevermind the tens of thousands of actual cases that prove the opposite. Listen to the Teabagger.

And he's not alone.

Willard Romney's vice presidential pick, the Kill Medicare Guy, also believes abortion should be illegal even in the case of incest or rape.

They've even written it into their official Regressive republican platform.

You vote for Willard Romney and this is what you get.  I can't imagine even one American woman stupid enough to elect this bunch of science-impaired yahoos to legislate on their behalf.
