Tina Fey zings Todd Akin and ‘legitimate rape’
Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin’s now infamous “legitimate rape” comments have led to no shortage of outraged responses from just about anybody with access to a media soapbox. The latest to take on the moronic comments was Tina Fey, the star of NBC’s 30 Rock (and my personal hero). Giving a speech at a gala Wednesday night at the Center for Reproductive Rights, Fey summarized what most sane people are thinking this election cycle: “And if I have to listen to one more gray-faced man with a $2 haircut explain to me what rape is, I’m going to lose my mind.”
And there was this nugget in which she perfectly encapsulated what angry voters think of Akin: “Todd Akin… Oof… This guy.” Indeed, Liz Lemon. Indeed.
