The GOP was rocked over the weekend by two flagrant examples of bad taste. Todd Akin made his stupefying remarks about rape and pregnancy, whereas Kansas Republican freshman Representative Kevin Yoder went skinny-dipping in the Sea of Galilee after a late-night party.
The Republican Party’s been shaken
By mistakes various pols have been makin’
For one, there’s the screwball Todd Akin
Who said pregnancy’s not usually been taken
In girls who are victims of rapin’
As long as ‘bout that they’re not fakin’.
In this he was greatly mistaken,
And said “folks, please give me a break an’
Don’t leave me forgot and forsaken”
Kev Yoder said he was takin’
A break in a trip he was makin’
So he took a jump in the lake an’
Next day when he was awakened
His head was all fuzzy and achin’
But he remembered the rule he’d been breakin’
Since his clothing all off he had taken -
He’s embarrassed and visibly shaken.
