Ryan says rape is a method of conception?

Back in August – an eternity ago in political world – Republican Tea Party (GOTP) vice presidential wannabe Paul Ryan gave an interview to WJHL-TV in Johnson City, TN, where he defended his position there should be no excuses for abortion, actually referring to rape as a “method of conception.”

EXCUSE ME?! RAPE IS NOW A “METHOD OF CONCEPTION”?! ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR BLOODY MIND!? While rape may resort in conception – unless you’re Todd Akin – it’s nowhere remotely close to love-making, you know love-making, as in the legitimate way of conceiving a child where two consenting adults copulate, or “make love”?

As the father of two daughters, and a father-in-law, I can’t conceive of the world these conservative troglodytes live in; RAPE is RAPE! This isn’t rocket science! Akin, Mourdock and Ryan are idiots, morons and imbeciles, and have no business being involved in politics and in making decisions regarding women’s bodies. How is it possible any educated woman, no cross that, any woman could vote for these guys? Welcome to the brave new world of today’s Republican Tea Party!

Republican legislator says “Some Girls Rape Easy”?

A Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Wisconsin lawmaker Roger Rivard’s under fire by his challenger after saying some girls “rape easy”.

Rivard’ said he was repeating what his father had warned him years before, that “some girls rape easy.” He weakly attempted to explain what he meant saying, some girls verbally consent to sex, and then later accuse the man of rape.

“If it’s rape, it’s rape,” Rivard told the newspaper. “If it’s not, it’s not.”

Rivard, who was endorsed in August by current GOTP Vice-Presidential wannabe Paul Ryan, is now saying his father’s advice was taken out of context:

“He also told me one thing, ‘If you do (have premarital sex), just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry,'” Rivard said. “Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she’s not going to say, ‘Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.’ All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she’s underage. And he just said, ‘Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,’ he said, ‘they rape so easy.’

“What the whole genesis of it was, it was advice to me, telling me, ‘If you’re going to go down that road, you may have consensual sex that night and then the next morning it may be rape.’ So the way he said it was, ‘Just remember, Roger, some girls, they rape so easy. It may be rape the next morning.’

“So it’s been kind of taken out of context.”

While Rivard’s comments were ignored by the media in December they’re being revisited as his race has tightened up against Democrat Stephen Smith, who’s saying Rivard’s comments appear to blame the victims of assault, and that his opponent’s “extreme” views prove he’s “out of touch with the majority of voters.”

You have to wonder, where does the GOTP find these troglodytes, Deliverance?
