Barbara Boxer Diagnoses Todd Akin, Republican Party With Mommy Issues

Categories: Politics
Obamacare does not cover Mommy Issues
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) took a brief break from politics yesterday and tapped into her inner Freud to conclude that all of this Republican crazy talk about rape and abortions is a sure sign that members of the GOP -- specifically Todd Akin -- suffer from some kind of weird mother fixation.

The senator didn't hold back as she dined with Planned Parenthood in San Jose, claiming that the GOP is filled with mentally ill people.

"Where's the outrage by Mitt Romney?" she told reporters. "There is a sickness out there in the Republican Party, and I'm not kidding. Maybe they don't like their moms or their first wives; I don't know what it is."

Finally, a real diagnosis!

But wait, she's not done. Boxer went ahead and gave the Republican Party the medical definition of rape, informing them that that all rape is forced -- and all rape is violent.

"There is a war against women, and Romney and Ryan -- if they are elected -- would become its top generals," Boxer said. She then reminded women in the audience to remember the days when desperate women and girls died in botched, back-alley abortions.

"We cannot go back," she said.

I'm for abortion and it's too bad Boxer's Mom didn't have one.
