The Social Poets: Comedy Gods Deliver Rape Advocates? Akin 4 Senate, Ryan 4 White House: From Denny: The Comedy Gods have been busy. First they struck their magic wands onto the tongue of Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), who is running for the Missouri Senate, and caused him to speak his true mind about his definition of what is rape and what is not.
Then the Comedy Gods touched off a firestorm among America's women - and many men - who were resoundingly insulted by his callous ill-informed remarks about the traumatic event of rape. As usual, these conservatives are also wrong on the medical facts as Akin was quick to quote as if it were true....
... This asinine story exploded all over the national news rooms where a number of journalists with some real integrity spoke up and condemned Akin. If you thought it couldn't become a bigger story, then some dick wad journalist thought he should play The Devil's Advocate and actually stepped up to defend Todd Akin. He received a resounding beat down on Twitter.
