|"Isn't That Teflon Special?"|
Evidently, according to Church Lady on Church Chat, for women who are not "legitimately raped" that magic teflon vagina juice cannot be conjured up.
House member Todd Akin (R-Bullshitistan) is there because some voters chose him to legislate laws for them.
I might note that Akin's magic potion ideology has been put into the 2012 GOP platform: no women's choice even in the case of rape or incest.
While the Romney - Ryan ticket claims to not hold that view from the GOP platform, it is a disingenuous denial:
After saying he “can’t defend” Rep. Todd Akin’s suggestion that women don’t get pregnant from rape, Mitt Romney stepped up his rebuke on Tuesday when he called on Akin to drop out of the Missouri Senate race. But archives from Romney’s previous presidential bid show that the Massachusetts Republican has historically supported the person who is the source of Akin’s theory, Dr. Jack C. Willke, the father of the antiabortion movement.(All About Doctor Teflon). The GOP fantasy world is not the greatest problem, no, the greatest problem is the psychological denial that causes it.
“Dr. Willke is a leading voice within the pro-life community and will be an important surrogate for Governor Romney's pro-life and pro-family agenda,” the Romney campaign said in an October 2007 statement.
“I am proud to have the support of a man who has meant so much to the pro-life movement in our country,” Romney said in the statement.
One has to wonder if the 28 year veteran republican, Mike Lofgren, who wrote the book "The Party Is Over" is spot on to say his party has gone batshit crazy:
To those millions of Americans ... it may have come as a shock that the Republican Party is so full of lunatics. To be sure, the party, like any political party on earth, has always had its share of crackpots, like Robert K. Dornan or William E. Dannemeyer. But the crackpot outliers of two decades ago have become the vital center today: Steve King, Michele Bachman (now a leading presidential candidate as well), Paul Broun, Patrick McHenry, Virginia Foxx, Louie Gohmert, Allen West. The Congressional directory now reads like a casebook of lunacy.(Goodbye To All That). We can take some actual, spoken-on-the-record words of some of these folks to bolster Lofgren's thesis:
It should have been evident to clear-eyed observers that the Republican Party is becoming less and less like a traditional political party in a representative democracy and becoming more like an apocalyptic cult, or one of the intensely ideological authoritarian parties of 20th century Europe. This trend has several implications, none of them pleasant.
''We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.''(When You Are Governed By Psychopaths, quoting Karl Rove). Yeah, that's the ticket, the magic teflon vagina juice reality, huh Karl?
