Missouri Senate candidate: “Legitmiate” rape victims can’t get pregnant

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Missouri Rep. Todd Akin said in a Sunday interview. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” Akin, who is running against Sen. Claire McCaskill in November, then claimed that even if these biological mechanisms don’t work, the perpetrator, not the child, should be punished. Kind of tough to defend that.

UPDATE: Akin has apologized for the comments.

While Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren obviously deserves much kudos from folks on the left for her bold stands on issues — which, unlike many Democratic politicians, aren’t afraid to show teeth — think the New York Times is overselling this with the headline “Heaven Is a Place Called Elizabeth Warren”? Sure, she could be an awesome member of the Senate, and might have aspirations beyond that, even. But before we get so far as to nickname her “Heaven”, let’s get a little closer to the election.
