30. This guy seems exceptionally clueless and dimwitted, even for a Republican.

Which is saying a lot. But if I'm understanding correctly, this rube is just running for the GOP nomination, and with any luck he'll get kicked to the curb in the primary by someone with a couple more i.q. points and won't ever really be voting on stuff like health care in the actual U.S. Senate.

I am reminded of Todd Akin, a Republican who served as the U.S. representative for Missouri's 2nd congressional district from 2001 to 2013. After all those years in the House, he decided to run for Senate, but his political career came to a screeching halt after he infamously said that women who are victims of what he called "legitimate rape" rarely get pregnant, because "the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” Rememer that? I'll never forget it myself. It was so outrageously stupid that it has permanently lodged in my mind. It evidently lodged in some voters' minds, too, because he lost that election quite handily.

This quote from Sheehy is at about the same level of outrageously stupid as what Akin said, so I think there's a reasonable chance of it getting an equally negative reaction. Let's hope so anyway.
