Why The Endless GOP Rape Remarks This Year; A Poll

First there was Missouri GOP Senate candidate Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin.

Then there was Wisconsin State Rep. Roger "Some girls rape easy" Rivard.

And now we have Indiana GOP Senate candidate Richard "gift of God" Mourdock.

Let's have a poll. Is this:

A.  Stupidity.

B.  Misogyny.

C.  Callousness.

D. All of the above.

The poll is on the upper left margin. One typo can't be removed. Anyway...Please vote.

I think Republicans are getting ready to overturn Roe V. Wade and so are desensitizing us to the idea that rape, incest, medical distress are valid reasons to terminate a pregnancy. Evidently this is a battle that women will be fighting for the rest of our lives.

This is not a well-designed, carefully-balanced, scientifically correct, tested-for-accuracy, ideologically neutral, as-good-or-better than a Charlie Sykes booty call for listeners to give their honest, supportable, factual views about this-or-that.

How can you call this a legitimate poll without including check boxes for "diabloical", "insane", "apocalyptic", "Coulter-ish"?
