Warning: Dudes Will Be Cancelled Amid Fight Over Abortion Rights

Rather than delve into the sordid debate over abortion, TKC believes it's much more productive to offer a public service for dumb dudes who might mistakenly stumble into a bitter and emotionally charged debate whilst casually surfing for big butt pix or funny memes. 

And so, here's TKC's Sunday warning . . . 


This is just a bloggy reminder so that your auntie doesn't show up and your house with a baseball bat. 

Of course there is a more important political perspective that holds consequences for upcoming midterms. 

Check this tactical insight quote and a preview of the debate sent by one of our KICK-ASS readers . . . The passage reveals that even pro-level politicos might not be equipped to cope with this debate . . .

The infamous Todd Akin "legitimate rape" moment of 2012 is among the top GOP gaffes . . . At the time, then-Congressman Akin posed a mortal threat to Missouri’s incumbent Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. But just as the contest was about to enter the final fall stretch, Akin was asked by journalist Charles Jaco whether abortion should be legal in cases of rape.

"First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare," Akin responded. "If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

That's where Akin's flourishing Senate bid began its death spiral, with him claiming to have scientific knowledge gleaned from "doctors" about how it all works down there for women.  

"As a woman & former prosecutor who handled 100s of rape cases, I'm stunned by Rep Akin's comments about victims this AM," McCaskill tweeted out. McCaskill later added that it was "beyond comprehension that someone can be so ignorant about the emotional and physical trauma brought on by rape."

One of the reasons the nation will surely be privy to more GOP "legitimate rape" blunders in the 2022 cycle is because the Republican Party has only gotten more siloed, more out of touch, and more steeped in bogus "science" over the last decade. No amount of candidate coaching will erase years of fever swamp training, though some Republicans in swing districts might talk a slightly better game than other GOP candidates.

And so we share a news link round-up in order to offer context and caution that merely hoping to save the lives of the innocent youngsters is no longer a valid political concern in the current American discourse.
