It is about being willfully ignorant of facts and science and using the willful ignorance to advance a partisan issue. Willful ignorance is despicable. Meanwhile -- apparently he is exactly on point with the party line. The Plank in the current republican platform. If you get raped good luck with that - god has given you a gift so that you can remember this moment for the rest of your life. Very old testament. Very cruel.
Which is worse, Rep. Todd Akin's, R-Mo., ignorance about human anatomy -- or the way Republicans jump, run and hide when the Democrat-media complex decides they should?

Akin is the Republican candidate for a crucial Senate seat in Missouri. In an interview, he said that he believed that pregnancy following an act of rape is "really rare -- if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down."

Incredibly dumb. The married father of six, including two daughters, apologized the next day and then recorded an ad apologizing yet...
