First Round: Akin 0 / Nye 1
Some are calling BS on this one, but if legitimate this has got to be one of the best rants ever. This is the type of rant that you think about but never say because you’ll get too excited and mess it up. Bill Nye the Science Guy seriously just took Todd Atkin down (another) notch. If you are not familiar with the situation, Todd Akin, U.S. Republican Representitive to Missouri, has quite recently doubted the legitimacy of Rape and the effect it has on its victim.
“Well you know, people always want to try to make that as one of those things, well how do you, how do you slice this particularly tough sort of ethical question. First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.“
Representitive Todd has gone a step further and is now blaming Hurricanes on Bill Nye for his outspokeness on the theory of creationism being taught to children as being harmful because it is, well, fake (It’s science, it works bitches). Nye lashed out during a broadcasted interview with the most legit response EVER! From the man himself:
“It used to be these Republicans didn’t believe in global warming or evolution. That was bad enough. Now they don’t even believe in egg + sperm = baby. Where does Todd Akin think babies come from? Does he think there are separate storks for people who were raped and people who weren’t? “
“Hey look over there! It’s the rape stork. It drops its babies directly at the orphanage.”
“He’s a fucking idiot. Just a plain fucking idiot. I’m sorry – I don’t say that word very often – but it happens to fit in this case. He’s just a fucking idiot.
So Todd I got an offer for you. You and me. Any time. Any place. Debating science mano- a-mano. I’ll bring the facts, and you bring the Vaseline Because your ass is gonna fucking need it when I’m done whipping”
Cheers to Mr. Nye, buy him a round next time you see him.
