    Akin is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Republican whacko-ism.

    From Akin, we learn of the sperm-killing ability of the female anatomy in cases of rape. Never mind scientific fact - Akin knows better. But it doesn't stop there. Oh, no.

    Global warming (does not exist), evolution (ditto) or a vaccine designed to prevent a virus linked to cervical cancer which, according to Michele Bachmann, could cause mental retardation because some woman had told her so - it doesn't matter. According to all too many Republicans, science is "poppycock ."

    The tragedy is that so many people in the forefront of the Republican Party subscribe to these nut case views.

    I'd watch with the anti-vaccine junk science, some on the left of the aisle are true believers in that crap.

    The difference here is, that the linked article in the OP cites facts (documented positions taken by the various people mentioned) whereas your little rant here involves nothing but generalized name calling, totally unsupported by anything specific, let alone a fact or two.

    See the difference?

    Then that would make them uninformed (to be charitable).

    Betcha more on the Right buy into it than on the Left, however.

    Don't forget the fundamentalist belief that the world is only 6,000 (approximately, of course) years old, and ALL that scientific evidence (like the fossil record and Carbon 14 dating) is sheer nonsense (or a liberal conspiracy, possibly meant to lead the faithful astray). That's why there was such a need to build the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY. where you can watch "children play and dinosaurs roam near Eden’s Rivers".

    Lefties have no idea what facts are. Biden sticks his foot in his mouth all the time. Akins is just another politician. He is still better then what you have.

    Do you really want to get into a right vs left whacko contest? Both sides have more than there fair share only a true partisan whacko believes one side is truly worse than the other.
