Rep. Todd Akin’s wife recently invoked rape as an ill-advised analogy for the Republican Party’s disassociation from Akin:
“Party bosses dictating who is allowed to advance through the party and make all the decisions – it’s just like 1776 in that way.”
That was when colonists “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.”
That analogy doesn’t even make sense, Lady. Here’s something to consider: apparently every time you or your husband mention the word “rape”, you’re going to end up regretting it.
My thanks to the Monty Python gang for suggesting the mantra I think the Akins should adopt from now on.
