A Brief History of Misogyny in the GOP Universe
Here is a A Brief History Of Republicans Saying Crazy Things About Women (complements of Talking Points Memo):
Senate candidate Todd Akin (R-Missouri): "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down."
Phil Gingrey (R-GA), an OB-GYN: “That's what he meant when he said legitimate rape versus non-legitimate rape. I don't find anything so horrible about that."
Senate candidate Richard Mourdock (R-Indiana): “I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen."
Rush Limbaugh (Radio Disc Junky): “What does that make her [Sandra Fluke]? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception."
Foster Friess (Republican donor who invested in Rick Santorum's 2012 presidential campaign): “You know, back in my days, they'd use Bayer aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn't that costly."
State Representative Roger Rivard (R-Wisconsin): “‘Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,' he said, 'they rape so easy.'”
Erick Bennett, the Republican Senate candidate in Maine who said his domestic violence conviction showed "integrity," repeatedly assaulted his ex-wife by squeezing her neck and threatening to kill her, according to a newly surfaced police report.
“We as a party need to start delivering women votes,” pleads RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, whose rancid proboscis is so stuffed with denial, not even the merciful should offer the snot a handkerchief.
