GOP Rep. Todd Akin recently apologized for claiming that pregnancy from rape is rare because in a “legitimate rape” a woman’s body protects her from pregnancy.
I think we can all agree that someone who knows shit about biology shouldn’t be regulating medical decisions like abortion and birth control.
But do our politicians know anything more about financial markets, ecology or economics than they know about biology? Generally no.
Next time you wax poetic about the wonders of Democracy read something your legislator has actually said about one of the topics he or she is regulating.
