Yeah, I bet you didn't expect a post title like that out of ole Sassy Cat, did you?
Missouri Congressman Todd Akin is a Republican candidate for the US Senate, running against incumbent Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill. Akin has been a member of the US House since 2000.
During a St. Louis television interview, Akin was asked if he would support abortions for women who had become pregnant as a result of rape.
"It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that's really rare. If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."
Now he is trying to backpedal, saying he misspoke. That was a pretty darn big "misspoke".
What do you think?
