Actress Martha Plimpton: Todd Akin speaks for entire GOP; Update: Plimpton doubles down

Apparently, like her fellow lefty luminaries Michael Moore  and Jan Schakowsky, Martha can’t be bothered to do any research before she opens her mouth. Fortunately, we’re here to help. Here are a few items to get her started:

Some Republicans say Rep. Todd Akin should step down; Updated

Romney-Ryan campaign: ‘We disagree with Mr. Akin’s statement’

Romney: Akin’s ‘comments on rape are insulting, inexcusable, and, frankly, wrong’

Scott Brown calls for Todd Akin to drop out of Senate race

GOP Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison condemns Todd Akin’s rape remarks; lefties call her a hypocrite

Sean Hannity tells Akin to quit race, Akin says he’s staying in … for now; Will media frenzy continue?

Sen. Kelly Ayotte, Sen. McCain call for Rep. Akin to step aside; Update: Blunt, Talent, Ashcroft and Danforth join in; McConnell favors withdrawal

Mitt Romney calls for Rep. Akin to drop out

If Ms. Plimpton took any interest in the truth, she’d know that Republicans have found a great deal to object to when it comes to Akin’s candidacy. Hey Martha, maybe you should add Twitchy to your reading list. You might learn a thing or two.


Update: Looks like Martha’s not quite finished yet.

Ah, so she’s reinforcing the leftist theory that bad things are only bad when conservatives do them. Really, Martha? Are you seriously suggesting that Todd Akin’s foolish “legitimate rape” remarks are worse — worse — than a state representative soliciting sex with a teenage boy, simply because Akin is a Republican?

Actually, Martha, it wasn’t. Once again, had you read Twitchy, you’d know.

Plimpton also retweeted this gem:

And as far as we can tell, Martha, you’re absolutely full of it.

    Martha just lost another fan.

    Who is she exactly?

  • republicandrinkingtea

    I NEVER even heard of this fool. And I won’t be looking for her. I don’t watch or pay to watch Democrap fools.

  • kch50428

    Looked it up on IMDB… only thing I’ve ever watched she’s been in is “Good Wife” – don’t remember her. At all.

      She had a bit part in the Goonies

    Why is it the (at best) C-listers mouth off like they’re A-listers? Agree or disagree, anyone that sees her comment is going to look up her credits first just to see who she is. And if that is typical reaction, then that says more than enough about her. Seriously, Tom Hanks is a bona fide Obama shill, but he hardly ever mouths off like Plimpton, Barkin, Hughley or the other bums. Guess he’s busy actually working.

    Can somebody tell me who the blank Martha Plimpton is anyway and name for me one thing she starred in bcuz I don’t believe I’ve ever heard of her and that would make her just another leftist nobody–oh wait, leftist and nobody mean the same thing so sorry for repeating myself.

    Who is Martha Plimpton? Should I care?

    • kch50428

      Don’t know myself, and no to answer your questions. :)

      I think she’s been in movies with Woody Allen, who is not technically a pedophile, but had no problem bedding his stepdaughter while still with his wife.

    • Madelyn Martine

      I agree…who IS she? What rock did she just crawl out from?

    She sent me this after I informed her that Romney and Ryan had both disavowed the comments as being untrue, and then she blocked me. Which was really arrogant on her part. I hadn’t even planned on responding back to her. “@becca51178 Oh I saw that. He hasn’t disavowed his false assertion that pregnancy can’t result from rape. He still believes a lie.” Actually, Martha, Yes he has.

    I remember she was in movies with River Phoenix when I was little and I saw her on an episode of Fringe not too long ago, but other than that I have no clue what she has been up to.

    Another unknown opening her mouth on things she does not know.

    Great, now I can’t watch Raising Hope anymore.

      The list of things I’m boycotting keeps getting longer and longer, good thing we have lots of options these days…

    The same Martha Plimpton of “The Goonies” fame? “I’m Martha Plimpton and I am desperately trying to remain relevant with this message.”

  • Love of Country

    Oh yeah, Martha …. well I’ll see your Todd Akin and raise you one Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz!

    And if you call that winning hand, I’ll draw you in even deeper and raise you one Joe Biden and Barack Owebamao and send you home dirt broke!

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    She gets her info from MSDNC. Enough said.

  • Mickey James

    How the hell is she a movie star? Is she one of the actors that get wacked at the very beginning of the movie? What ever happened to all the good looking female stars?


    To steal a line (sort of) from Animal House: Ugly and stupid is no way to go through life, Martha.
