Race for the White House - 50 Shades of Rape?

Fitzsimmons cartoon: Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" comment

"Forcible""Legitimate"?  The 50 shades of rape?
I would not believe it if I hadn't seen the tape.
I am still incredulous that Akin's staying in;
That he's only 10 points back and has a chance to win.

In the current day and age I thought this battle won,
But that's not the platform the Republicans will run.
Christian Right is organized this time and running hard.
Women voters need to stay aware and be on guard.

Rights to our own bodies that they plan to take away.
They'd deny us birth control...  Viagra?  Then they'll pay.
And, should we get pregnant during rape that's not legit,
Once the child is born, Republicans don't give a  ....  ahem - spit.

Then you're just a welfare mom and you are on your own.
"Sorry sweetie. Out of luck.  Our deficit has grown
After all the subsidies and tax breaks for the rich.
Surely you can understand and not be such a ...  uhh - witch."

Maybe I should wrap this up...  I feel the need to swear.
As I go, I saw a video I thought I'd share.
This girl is terrific and she has a lovely voice.
Have a happy weekend and, remember - Vote for Choice.
