You knew the crazy teabagging congressional caucus couldn’t go long keeping their crazy science-y ideas to themselves about the mysterious lady parts. After a dreadful summer topped off by Todd Akin, Quasi-MD., the first debate and subsequent polling seem to finally turn Romney’s way. Which is why I bet crazy Joe Walsh is being told to politely and firmly by his colleagues to please cease and desist before this turns into another Todd Akin flap:
WGN— Walsh said he was against abortion “without exception,” including rape, incest and in cases in which the life or health of the mother was in jeopardy.
Asked by reporters after the debate if he was saying that it’s never medically necessary to conduct an abortion to save the life of a mother, Walsh responded, “Absolutely. With modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance,” he said. … There is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing.”
Incidentally, the very healthcare that might reduce pregnancies that pose a threat to the mother’s life are precisely the healthcare measures Walsh and his sick cohorts oppose to their lying, dying breath.
Actually, there is one reaosn why Teabagging jerks would support an aboriton: to save the political life of the philandering father:
A pro-life, family-values congressman who worked as a doctor before winning election as a Tea Party-backed Republican had an affair with a patient and later pressured her to get an abortion, according to a phone call transcript obtained by The Huffington Post.
Anyway, back to the main course. To underline what a classless, clueless douche Walsh really is, he made this zany comment in the context of a debate with his female opponent, a former combat pilot who lost both of her legs when she was shot down in the early days of the Iraq War.
My GOP counteraprts wouldn’t come right out and admit it to me last night, but after Binders-full-of-WOMEN, I think they’re hoping and praying this doesn’t gain the kind of traction Akin’s stupidity did a few weeks ago. And they better hope those incantations work.
