During a revoltingly racist 2008 rant, D-list comedian Sandra Bernhard said Sarah Palin was a “whore” who would be “gang-raped” by her “big black brothers” if she visited New York.
Four years ago, rape was a punchline.
But yesterday, the vile Bernhard decided her pro-women credibility was somehow still intact. She joined other liberal celebs and many Republican Twitter users in condemning U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin for saying that women rarely get pregnant from “legitimate rapes.”
We don’t think the science is on Akin’s side — pregnancy resulting from rape is not uncommon — but give Catanese credit for showing a bit of independent thought. Unfortunately, his thoughts didn’t go over so well with the leftist herd.
In the wake of Rep. Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comments, some Republicans are urging Akin to step aside for another Republican candidate. One of those calling on Akin to step down is Patrick Ruffini, a GOP strategist. Ruffini says that Akin can withdraw from the race prior to Tuesday August 21st at 5:00 p.m. His […]
Last week was a rough one for the Left’s favorite RINO, Meghan McCain. She made the mistake of saying nice things about Paul Ryan, which understandably caused a lot of her leftist fans to freak out. Not to worry. Rep. Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comments provided the perfect opportunity for McCain to do what she does best […]

On the issue of “legitimate rape,” Rep. Todd Akin is exactly the same as Rep. Paul Ryan. Or so Debbie Wasserman-Schultz would lead us to believe. Naturally, the Left couldn’t resist the meme: How Todd Akin And Paul Ryan Partnered To Redefine Rape | ThinkProgress http://t.co/pwJsP5n2 — robert hosken (@bo7b) August 19, 2012 Paul Ryan […]
His full statement: “As a member of Congress, I believe that working to protect the most vulnerable in our society is one of my most important responsibilities, and that includes protecting both the unborn and victims of sexual assault. In reviewing my off-the-cuff remarks, it’s clear that I misspoke in this interview and it does […]
Leftists have spent much of the afternoon criticizing and mocking Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Missouri, who made poorly-worded comments about “legitimate rape.” Alas, a few liberals are taking it too far.
This afternoon, Twitter was buzzing over comments made by Rep. Todd Akin, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in Missouri. The Twitter response to Akin’s remarks has been overwhelmingly negative. Even some Republicans are calling for Rep. Akin to drop out of the Senate race with the hope that he can be replaced by another […]
In light of Rep. Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comments, a few Republicans and/or conservatives are calling for Akin to step down with the hope that he can be replaced by another Republican candidate.
Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill took to Twitter this afternoon to blast Rep. Todd Akin for saying that women who are “legitimately raped” are unlikely to get pregnant. Still no comment from Rep. Akin.

“Put them on the record.”
Is that what we think it is?
“Tool of the day.”
“A” is for “asinine.”
Would it be rude to remind Mia Farrow that Twitchy is forever? FYI, instead of apologizing for saying all the rude people on Twitter were Republican, @MiaFarrow just quietly deleted the tweet. — RB (@RBPundit) August 28, 2013 The actress’ tweet about “rude” Twitter Republicans is gone, but since we’re givers, it definitely won’t be forgotten: […]
Even blind squirrels find a nut every once in a while. RT @EllenPage: So Bob Filner really hasn't resigned yet?

Did we say psyched? Actress and A is For… co-founder Martha Plimpton is beyond psyched.
“Heartless, soulless animals”? Not so fast, Cher.
Remember Todd Akin and his “legitimate rape” remarks? Or Rep. Phil Gingrey? Or Richard Mourdock’s misconstrued comments about children conceived during rape? The mainstream media ensured that we’d never forget. And as Twitchy reported, Colorado State Rep. Joe Salazar is now finding himself in a similar situation after his insulting trivialization of rape and his […]
Anything to give cover to fellow progressives.
As Twitchy reported, Gayle Trotter of the Independent Women’s Forum sent progressive heads into a spin today by testifying that “guns make women safer” and “are the great equalizer during a violent confrontation.” That particular form of female empowerment didn’t sit well with onlookers who don’t like the idea of a woman behind the trigger of […]
