Denizens, I’m not sure what to make of the Akin brouhaha.
Yeah, what the guy said was dumb. Incredibly so, in fact. Now, I understand the line of reasoning – you tell me who among us, sans the necessary training, performs well under extreme pressure. (And I don’t give a shit if the study he’s quoting was commissioned by the Nazis – if they proved it, they proved it.)
Nor am I saying the “science”, if you will, is 100% guaranteed to work all the time. 30,000 rape pregnancies per year (at least, that’s the number I remember reading) puts the lie to that.
I do concede that the way he said it was very, very stupid.
But what irritates me is the way that all the conservative high muckety-mucks in our society – from the Mizzou political bigwigs, to Malicious Malkin, to Hannity, to Krauthammer, to – yes, even Limbaugh – are throwing this guy under the bus. Despite the man’s obviously conservative voting record in Congress, he’s now a fucking GOP pariah.
It’s the one advantage the Demoscum have over us. Biden makes a crack about Republicans wanting to put Americans in “chains” (and spoken with a faux Southern accent, at that) – the Dimbulbs come to his aid. Bambi says something stupid (a daily occurrence nowadays), the Donks circle the wagons.
Why don’t we ever go to the mats for our people? Why do we cower in fear when one of ours commits a bon mot?
Pisses me off. We’d throw Christ Himself under the bus if he said something controversial these days.
And if we continue to run away like ball-less, dickless wonders, is it any wonder why we lose elections all the time?
