Tina Fey On Todd Akin: "I'm Going To Lose My Mind"

Tina Fey has a few choice words for Todd Akin, and any other "gray-faced man" who tries to explain what rape is.

I have to agree with Fey on this one. How is it that a bunch of old dudes have suddenly become experts on what qualifies as rape? Seriously.

Set aside the topic of abortion for moment, as that is not a factor in this subject. My thought is simple: There is no "legitimate" rape, because there is no "illegitimate" rape. Rape is rape. Plain and simple.

...nd I also agree that an "honest and respectful dialogue about these complicated issues" would be great.
