Paul Ryan thinks rape is just a "method of conception"

From the ignoramuses that brought you "legitimate rape","forcible rape", "bad sexual etiquette", "grey rape", and "the rape spectrum", we have the newest contender for the worst way to describe non-consensual violent sexual assault ever.

In an interview with WJHL's Josh Smith last week, Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan tossed out his two cents about what is rapidly becoming the Summer of Morons Talkin' 'Bout Rape.

"The method of conception doesn't change the definition of life."

One more time: "The method of conception doesn't change the definition of life."

But.... but... Mr. Ryan? If women can't get pregnant from rape (like your fellow Republican Todd Akin believes), how are all these rape babies conceived?

Yeah, that loud thunking sound you hear is me smashing my head into my desk as hard as I can.

We really should be surveying our own politicians for their views on these matters. Mr. Ryan (et al) has many devote followers here in Canada and those people are in positions of power. Canadians need to be informed about who they are and who they truly represent.

Oh, Miranda, Miranda, Miranda.

Everybody knows that rape and incest babies are conceived by Satan. Silly girl.

The only real question for Paul ("God I Look Like Alfred E. Newman") Ryan is this: What should we do with Satan Spawn? Eh?

I knew there had to be an explanation. Here I thought they were delivered in the dead of night by a rogue stork. And HOLY SHIT! I knew Paul Ryan looked familiar!!

It's hard to believe that human beings like him actually exist. He's truly a product of insane dogma.

If Obama raped Ryan's mother would Ryan love his new sibling as much as he does his other siblings?

This guy's eyes are an open and obvious result of generations of the fucking religeous extremists that europe kicked out in the 1700's.
Now they have money and power; how creeped out can one get-except here Harper wears glasses to blunt those give-away eyes. ( There's also the "smiling" curved corner of the mouth similarity too....)
God-please-if he or she truly exists-send down the Martians and zap these shits...please. I have female children, nice ex's and friends;
-and what may happen down there could end up here.
This is scarry: psychos with ambition and $billions.

Off with their heads
As appalling as he is, he's right. The method of conception doesn't change the definition of life. Like it or not, the virtual woman got raped and now, there's life inside.

It's probably the less idiotic we'll hear from this guy.
