America's Dumbest Congress Critter

Congressman Todd Akin (R-MO) is the GOPer nominee for the US Senate seat currently held by the blue dog, Claire McCaskill. Apparenlty Todd took to  the campaign trail and was touting his position on choice. He seems to believe that women should have no choice in the matter of whether or not they should carry a particular pregnancy to term. A woman's sole choice in that regard seems to be whether she will allow entre to the man's  cock. Once she agrees to that  all is over for our lady fairest and if she conceives she has to carry to term. Simple right? 
Well Congressman Akin feels that is an entirely reasonable thing to say. When queried about pregnancies resulting from rape, he repled in such a way as to cause his hearer to believe that a rape and incest exception  is not needed because there are apparently few "legitmate rapes:"  as he called them and in those cases the mysterious female body has ways of preventing pregnancy. This claim completely ignores the fact that more than 35,000 children are born each year in the US  as the product of rape.
Mr Akin is my hands down choice for Congressional Dumbass of the week! In fact I wouldn't be surprised if the Akin were also the stupidest member of the House.
