“If I Have To Listen To One More Grey-Faced Man With A $2 Haircut Explain To Me What Rape Is, I’m going To Lose My Mind!”
Tina Fey at the Center for Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala.
Bemoaning the fact that she feels as if women’s rights was no longer a subject that could be discussed in civil terms, Fey unloaded on political candidates such as Richard Mourdock, the GOP nominee for the open senate seat from Indiana, who on Tuesday night said that pregnancy from rape was “God’s will.”
“If I have to listen to one more grey-faced man with a $2 haircut explain to me what rape is,” she warned, “I’m going to lose my mind!”
…She specifically had harsh words for Missouri Rep. Todd Akin, who has stayed in his race for senate even after receiving harsh condemnation for a gaffe that displayed a loose grip on science.
“Todd Akin claims that women can’t really get pregnant from a legitimate rape because the body secretes hormones — you know what, I can’t even finish this sentence without getting dumber… Mr. Akin, I think you’re confusing the term rape with competitive gymnastics.”
