Dynamic Duo: Todd Akin & Jethro Bodine

       Remember the gangly, grinning star of the“Beverly Hillbillies,” who was dumb as a box of rocks, yet aspired to be a brain surgeon?  Had Jethro lived in Missouri, Todd Akin could have been his mentor.  The Congressman, who serves on the Science, Space and Technology Committee of the House, bubbles over with medical know-how.  We are still agog at his revelation that a woman rarely gets pregnant from a “legitimate” rape, because her body will “shut that whole thing down.”  Even Jethro would have scratched his head over that one.

       “Doc” Akin revealed more medical mal-information in a 2008 speech on the House floor, when he took on abortion doctors, concluding that they and their supporters were “un-American” and criminal.

       "You find that along with the culture of death go all kinds of other law-breaking: Not following good sanitary procedure, giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant, cheating on taxes, all these kinds of things," Akin said in the C-SPAN recorded speech. "All of these things are common practice, but all of that information is available for America."

       Where is such information to be found, “Doc”?  If you are privy to these medical transgressions, it is your duty to reveal where they are occurring and who the malefactors are. Perhaps Jethro can help.  Since giving up his lifelong ambition to be a brain surgeon, he been studying to be a “double-naught spy.” Jethro claims his smarts come from having "grad-ge-ated from the sixth grade” in only three years.  In Missouri, he could have become a “kong-gress-mon” in less time.
