I'd say something here, but this kind of thing leaves me sickened and queasy (and due to recent events, once again - thanks for nothing Bush Republicans - ashamed of being from Texas: the state where only men know anything about women's health)





and for tonight's WTF-ery

In case some of y'all haven't seen this:

GOP Senate Nominee: Victims of ‘Legitimate Rape’ Rarely Get Pregnant:

Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), the Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri, said he doesn’t support abortion even in cases of rape because victims of “legitimate rape” rarely get pregnant.

Article here

But it gets better! Apparently Rep. Akin sits on/heads the House Science and Technology Committee. Boggle at that for a moment, yeah.

So, there's a petition at LeftAction, addressed to John Boehner, to remove Akin from said committee. Here:

http://www.leftaction.com/action/tell-boehner-remove-akin-science-committee

Please go sign it, and then boost the hell out of this. And if there's any other petitions -- maybe one to throw this guy into a shark-infested tank? -- let me know? Thanks.
