Rep. Todd Akin’s wife, Lulli Akin, says the Republican Party’s attempts to push her husband out of the Missouri Senate race — over his false assertion that women who are raped rarely get pregnant — are like rape itself.
... She cited colonists who “rose up and said, ‘Not in my home, you don’t come and rape my daughters and my … wife. But that is where we are again. There has been a freedom of elections, not tyranny of selections since way back. Why are we going to roll over and let them steamroll us, be it Democrats or Republicans or whomever?”
Jesus Christ in kid leather gloves, does the Akin family not own one dictionary between them? And have they never heard the parable of the boy who cried rape? Because if my last name were Akin, I'd be frantically spackling and sealing all my holes shut right about now.
Thanks to Slog tipper Bill, who writes, "I swear to god I will literally kill the next person who equates anything but sexual assault with sexual assault." I have a brand-new electric knife sharpener with your name on it, Bill.
