The Lyrics

You can't get pregnant
You can't get pregnant if you've been raped

Say that you're runnin' for a Senate seat
There's some things you shouldn't say, but this one can't be beat
You say a woman's body has a fail-safe switch
So that if she gets raped, it won't knock up the b--ch

There's gaffes and then there's big gaffes, but this one really takes the cake
Where did you hear that you can't get pregnant, you can't get pregnant if you've been raped
You can't get pregnant
You can't get pregnant if you've been raped

Someone's always playing those election games
But politicians flip flop, seems like they're all the same
But when someone a gaffe makes, everyone's heads turn
When you're in the spotlight, the heat will make you burn

There's gaffes and then there's big gaffes, but this one really takes the cake
No doctor'd say that you can't get pregnant, you can't get pregnant if you've been raped
You can't get pregnant
You can't get pregnant if you've been raped

It's just another Monday on the campaign trail
But when you made that comment, you touched the ol' third rail

Who'd say that rape can be "legitimate?"
You have to be real dumb, or just full of it
So count this a forfeit, your campaign's at an end
You can't run America when women you offend

There's gaffes and then there's big gaffes, Todd Akin really took the cake
Where did he learn that you can't get pregnant, you can't get pregnant if you've been raped
You can't get pregnant
You can't get pregnant if you've been raped

"A gaffe is when a politician accidentally tells the truth." -- Michael Kinsley. In America, this guy is an extremist wacko. In the Republican Party, this guy is in the mainstream. Mitt Romney, the leader of his party, needs to announce that views like this are unacceptable and that he needs to drop out of the race. But Romney won't do it, because he's a coward.

A coward? You are WAY too kind.

Akin is Republican mainstream, Michael? Is that why he was forced to withdraw from his campaign within 24 hours of saying this? Is that why the Republicans just gave away the Senate seat from Missouri and possible control of the Senate? Is that why he was instantly condemned by every Republican and every blogger and commentator in the right wing blogosphere? Because his views are just so mainstream. I challenge you to find any post anywhere in the right wing blogosphere that didn't condemn Akin in the strongest possible terms

Republicans put principle ahead of power. At least until they are accidentally elected. Then their only policy is compromise.

Good parody Hu.

@EFU: I happen to disagree with Pach 90% of the time, but the above is a blatant personal attack and has been reported as such. Bad behavior is bad behavior, no matter which side of the political spectrum one embraces.
@ EFU - August 21, 2012 - Report this comment
Re-post the comment with "just the facts", the true examples you gave, and leave out the insults (of which Michael Pacholek has himself been guilty on many occasions, but that''s not the point -- take the moral high ground). Then that comment should stand, regardless of what is decided on the one above.

In the "Culture of Corruption", don't forget Solyndra and the millions made on that by O fund-raiser George Kaiser while we taxpayers lost half a billion bucks.
