Biologically stupid' tied with 'legitimate rape' for worst GOP quote in 24 hours

News

There must be something in the water.

Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Todd Akin (Mo.) said yesterday that in the case of "legitimate rape," pregnancy is rare because "the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

Everyone has pointed out how stupid that is already.

But today on MSNBC, Sean Spicer, Republican National Committee communications director, came pretty close to one-upping Akin. "I think we can all agree [Akin's comment] was reprehensible, just biologically stupid," Spicer said.

What?

This is a disaster.
