Backing rapists turns out to be terrible idea

DEMANDING a square deal for America’s rapists is not a vote-winner, it has been confirmed.

Republican senatorial candidates Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock were soundly defeated suggesting voters are still not ready for their radical, pro-rape message.

Meanwhile, presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who refused to disown Mourdock’s comments, lost the female vote heavily despite repeatedly pointing out that he was relatively handsome.

Republican strategist Todd Logan said: “So women are not keen on rape? That’s a real a noggin-scratcher.”
