That would be Todd Akin.
Then his "understanding" of biology (a woman can "shut down" an unwanted pregnancy if it was caused by rape) makes him a legitimate idiot.
Now, the past four Republican senators from Missouri have asked him to step down and he refuses.
That makes Tom Akin a legitimate jerk.
Or, on the other hand, a typical politician.
If we ever, ever needed a poster child for what is wrong with American politicians, Tom Akin is it.
He doesn't give a damn about Missouri or America. All he cares about is himself.
He looks in the mirror and sees a U.S. Senator staring back. A member of the world's most exclusive club. One of the one hundred most powerful people in all of politics. He sees the riches, the perks, the gains that come with the job.
He doesn't give a legitimate crap about anyone other than himself. This is HIS shot for the legitimate big time and he ain't stepping down for nobody.
Anyone who legitimately thinks a woman's body can "shut down" a pregnancy caused by or as a result of rape is too stupid to be a U.S. Senator. In fact, they're too stupid to do ANYTHING that represents anyone's best interest.
The RNC has pulled their $5 million in advertising support and the Crossroads group (backed by Karl Rove) has also pulled their support. I don't know where Akin is going to find any legitimate support.
If I lived in Missouri, I wouldn't vote for him. I sure as hell wouldn't vote for McCaskill--which means I'd have to leave that box blank.
That would be a legitimate sin for me, but sin I would.
Akin. Step down, you legitimate jerk.
