We hope you’ve enjoyed our coverage of some of the most gobmackingly uninformed bullshit the GOP has spouted regarding women, rape and pregnancy in recent months. Now for a little post-election follow-up.
Senate hopeful Tom Smith, who said pregnancy from consensual sex is just like pregnancy from rape, from “the father’s” perspective, lost the election.
Joe Walsh, who said women never need abortions to save their lives lost the election to Tammy Duckworth, whom he criticized for mentioning her undeserved (in his opinion) war hero status too often. Oh, yes, he said that. Oh, no, he did not serve himself.
Todd Akin, who thinks an egg can grow a powershield to avoid being impregnated through rape (I guess; whatever his theory, I learned better in sixth grade biology) and accused doctors of “giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant” (wow; I could not make this shit up), lost the election to Claire McCaskill.
Oh, and despite binders full of women, Romney lost, too.
And Elizabeth Warren won her election, even though her opponent didn’t say anything tragically offensive in public, just because she rocks.
Just some thoughts to mull over.
