UPDATED: Clueless moron Dana Loesch defends Todd Akin's "Legitimate Rape" comment

When Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin made the idiotic suggestion that "women who are 'legitimately raped' don't get pregnant" today on KTVI's The Jaco Report with Charles Jaco, KFTK radio host and Akin shill Dana Loesch defended Akin's offensive remarks, typical for an anti-choicer.

From the 08.19.2012 edition of KTVI's The Jaco Report:




Here are Loesch's classless tweets on this subject:











These tweets are more proof that Dana Loesch is a clueless asshole.

UPDATED: She defended Akin on Big Government.


Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin appeared on a local St. Louis television show (below) and discussed his thoughts on abortion, even in the instance of rape or incest, which accounts for less than 1% of abortions received.  
Progressive backlash from Roman Polanski fans and deniers of Occupy rapes was immediate.  
Democrats want to make social issues the focus on the campaign as opposed to the economy, where they're losing, and Akin's interview gave them them the momentary opportunity they needed to shift attention away from the lagging economy.
Was Akin's "misspeech" ridiculous? Of course. Is it worse than the misdeeds of his opponent, Claire McCaskill, who rubber-stamps Obama's war on Missouri coal jobs and tripled our deficit? Not by conservative standards, or any real standard of measurement.




The New Civil Rights Movement:
The Internets are aghast after Republican Congressman Todd Akin told a Fox reporter that women who are victims of “legitimate rape” rarely if ever get pregnant because their bodies automagically just “shut down” those pregnancies — so there’s no point in even discussing abortion in cases of rape. 

So, who is this brave American defender of Congressman Akin? None other than Breitbart editor Dana Loesch, who claims she isn’t defending the Congressman, merely upset that “some are stretching it majorly.” 
Of course, Loesch is defending Akin the same way she addresses every situation in the world: find a sitution that has the same keywords, or in some alternate universe is somehow tangentially related to the major league Republican screw up, and try to make Democrats and liberals the ones to blame. 
Even Twitchy, that journalistic malpractice carbunkle of Michelle Malkin isn’t defending Akin — but they are highlighting Loesch’s tweets.

Todd Akin supposedly "apologized" for his comments on rape, but I'm not buying that.

TPM:


Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) said late Sunday that he "misspoke" when he claimed that women who are victims of "legitimate rape" have biological defenses that fend off a pregnancy and therefore do not need legal abortion rights.
"In reviewing my off-the-cuff remarks, it's clear that I misspoke in this interview and it does not reflect the deep empathy I hold for the thousands of women who are raped and abused every year," Akin said in a statement. He promised rape victims "will have no stronger advocate in the Senate to help ensure they have the justice they deserve" if he is elected.

If Akin can't make a SINCERE and REAL apology about his degrading comments, then he should be voted down this November.

Even certain conservatives have demanded that he step down, via Think Progress' Zach Beauchamp:

Rep. Todd Akin, the GOP Senate candidate in Missouri, set off a firestorm today afterclaiming that women who are victims of “legitimate rape” don’t usually become pregnant because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” Now, several conservative writers have started calling for Akin to withdraw from his Senate race.
