Deranged Todd Akin is back — and steps in it again!I suppose it's sweeps time at Salon.
Akin says he was telling the truth about lying women who claim they were raped to get out of the consequences of sex – but that he was strong-armed into apologizing by craven GOP bosses. “My comment about a woman’s body shutting the pregnancy down was directed to the impact of stress of fertilization,” he writes in “Firing Back: Taking on the Party Bosses and Media Elite to Protect Our Faith and Freedom.”Of course The Ghost, who possesses a degree in Biology (not the associate kind either), knew exactly what Akin was referring to when he first said it. For example:
Stress reduces conception probabilities across the fertile window: evidence in support of relaxation CONCLUSION(S): Stress significantly reduced the probability of conception each day during the fertile window, possibly exerting its effect through the sympathetic medullar pathwaySo. Akin was 100% correct. Yet he is labelled "deranged" How does that work exactly? Oh right! Vagina.
Akin, who is not a doctor, insists “this is something fertility doctors debate and discuss. Doubt me?” Why yes, Todd, I do. “Google ‘stress and infertility,’ and you will find a library of research on the subject.” Well, that settles it.Well I'm not a doctor either but yeah, if you Google it you will find out what I wrote in 2012. Why didn't Joan Walsh, do what reporters are SUPPOSED to do and do the research? Because vagina. If you're not mature enough to admit when someone you dislike is correct you have no business writing for any "reputable" publication.
