What the hell was Akin thinking?

So I go to a Cards game this afternoon and come home to find out that Todd Akin has come out of the bat-shit crazy closet? 

Todd Akin opposed abortion even in the case of rape.  In an interview released today with Charles Jaco from KTVI Fox St Louis, Akin explained that in the event that a rape is "legitimate" the woman's body has a means of preventing conception, and therefore would not be in need of an abortion.  Women only become pregnant, it seems, if they really wanted it.

Listen for yourself,

As Josh Marshall observed, as important as consent is, it's not a biological prerequisite to conception.

I knew Akin was extremely conservative but had no idea he was a complete idiot.
