Ugh: Rep. Gingrey said Todd Akin 'partially right' on 'legitimate rape' comments


All across the Twittersphere, heads are meeting desks after Ga. Rep. Phil Gingrey, an OB/GYN, called Todd Akin’s controversial “legitimate rape” comments “partially right.” We’d hoped we were past this, but alas.

“And I’ve delivered lots of babies, and I know about these things.

And don’t be so tense and uptight because all that adrenaline can cause you not to ovulate.’ So he was partially right wasn’t he?”

That’s good advice. Take it.
