I wanna address my fellow Conservatives who are running for office this year. C’mere. You may not be aware of this, but in 1920, women got the right to vote. And since then, among likely voters, rape’s approval ratings has plummeted.
I just wanna give you a little advice on how to handle yourself if in the middle of a debate or while casually talking to reporters you feel yourself about to share your views on rape. I want you, and this is important, so, go grab a pencil, okay… If you’re about to talk about rape I want you to STAB YOURSELF IN THE EYE WITH YOUR PENCIL. JUST JAM IN IT IN THERE. […] See if you can get in there and sever the portion of your brain that scours the word ‘rape’! And don’t stop until your urge to appeal to voters by talking about rape has passed.
Now sadly, it is too late for Richard Mourdock, these comments have left his campaign in shambles. But you know what? Don’t shed a tear, folks, because I’ve come to realize that this is just something God intended to happen.
