Oh, yes, she did. She made those comments a couple of days ago, but it’s getting lots of buzz on Twitter today. See, former Bush adviser Karen Hughes has some advice for Republicans going forward. Men, stop talking about rape. Except to say that it’s a horrific, violent crime, always.
More from Politico:
“And if another Republican man says anything about rape other than it is a horrific, violent crime, I want to personally cut out his tongue. The college-age daughters of many of my friends voted for Obama because they were completely turned off by Neanderthal comments like the suggestion of “legitimate rape.”
Fair warning, GOP 2016 hopefuls: You have THREE YEARS to figure out how to answer the "is rape good?" question.—

Bingo! Of course, this only works if the press stops haranguing them with questions about rape. It’s quite apparent that lapdogs in the media grossly demagogue rape in order to get some “gotcha” moments and push a political agenda. Hey, why don’t they start asking President Obama about his actual extreme views on abortion like being a proponent of third trimester abortion and an opponent of Born Alive laws?
But, you know, that doesn’t fit the narrative. Right, lapdogs?
