Todd Akin lends an assist to the Democrats (the New York Times reports):
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In an effort to explain his stance on abortion, Representative Todd Akin, the Republican Senate nominee from Missouri, provoked ire across the political spectrum on Sunday by saying that in instances of what he called “legitimate rape,” women’s bodies somehow blocked an unwanted pregnancy.
In a senate already filled with clowns, Akin would fit right in. But I doubt that he’ll get the chance.
Obama must be laughing.
