TEA PARTY candidate Tom Smith, taking on Democratic Sen. Bob Casey in Pennsylvania, decided to go down the Todd Akin-Paul Ryan road today. It got bumpy very quickly.
SMITH: Uh, having a baby out of wedlock.
SCOLFORO: That’s similar to rape?
SMITH: No, no, no, but… put yourself in a father’s situation, yes. It is similar.
A woman’s been raped, but we’re supposed to put ourselves in the father’s situation?
Then to top that off we’re supposed to believe having a child when you’re not married is equal to rape?
What’s it going to take for voters to understand the type of people Republicans are fielding and for rank and file Republicans to mount a full scale revolt? The parade of people on the right not remotely qualified for Congress is history making.
