Mike Huckabee, in defense of rape babies (seriously)

Shorter GOP: Time for America’s women to make some rape lemonade.

Keep in mind that this is the guy a lot of Republicans wanted as their presidential candidate.  And according to the Village, he’s the “nice” one.

Just wow.  Via Gawker:

This is what Mike Huckabee said today, as transcribed by the Los Angeles Times’ James Rainey, about the upside of being raped and then getting pregnant:
“Ethel Waters, for example, was the result of a forcible rape,” Huckabee said of the late American gospel singer. One-time presidential candidate Huckabee added: “I used to work for James Robison back in the 1970s, he leads a large Christian organization. He, himself, was the result of a forcible rape. And so I know it happens, and yet even from those horrible, horrible tragedies of rape, which are inexcusable and indefensible, life has come and sometimes, you know, those people are able to do extraordinary things.”

Anyway, stop being so racist against rape-babies, everyone.
