While there is NOTHING funny about the recent remarks made by Congressman Todd Akin about women and rape, the idiocy and absurdity of his sorely lacking basic critical thinking skills (and a freshman-level understanding of human biology) is something I just gotta laugh at or I might explode in horror.
As usual, though, when one of the "leaders" who helps run our country shows his true colors and horrifies the nation, Twitter has wasted no time putting Congressman Akin through the ringer. Knocking down his logic, making (smart and sometimes hilariously immature) jokes at his expense, and rightfully ripping him a new one. So if you're like me and just gotta laugh so you don't cry your eyes, then take a look at these 15 Best Todd Akin Slams from Twitter.
