Tina Fey Unleashes Her Wrath on Akin and GOP Rape Apologists

At a gala for the Center for Reproductive Rights, comedian Tina Fey had a few choice words for Todd "legitimate rape" Akin. Known for her dead-on impersonation of Sarah Palin on SNL and acerbic wit in general, Fey took aim at the folks whom Stephen Colbert would call "team rape": Akin and his ilk who can't keep their mouths shut on the issue of rape, pregnancy and abortion.


Her words were as exasperated as they were funny: "If I have to listen to one more grey-faced man with a two-dollar haircut explain to me what rape is, I'm gonna lose my mind," she said. She tried to explain Akin's offensive remarks but decided she couldn't finish her sentence, because she was getting dumber by the second.
