"Todd Akin's Comments Were Offensive And Harmful, But He Had a Point"

A few days ago, Celeste Greig, the president of California's oldest and largest Republican volunteer group, joined the long line of Republicans to criticize Rep. Todd Akin for being a dumbass due to his little rape comments:

"That was an insensitive remark," Greig said. "I'm sure he regretted it. He should have come back and apologized."
Unfortunately, she also happened to join a long line of Republicans who simultaneously agreed with said comments:

"Granted, the percentage of pregnancies due to rape is small because it's an act of violence, because the body is traumatized," she added. "I don't know what percentage of pregnancies are due to the violence of rape. Because of the trauma the body goes through, I don't know what percentage of pregnancy results from the act."
 Oh, so close, Celeste.
