Ashley Judd was compared to Todd Akin by conservative writer for The Daily Caller, Alex Pappas. Seriously?

Ashley Judd’s name has been floated around as possible Democratic candidate to run Senator Mitch McConnell in Kentucky in 2014. But haters have already come out swinging, with a writer for conservative blog The Daily Caller comparing the actress/humantarian/women’s rights activist to Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin. No, seriously. He did:

“Judd runs the risk of being portrayed as a Todd Akin-esque candidate — meaning voters simply decide she’s unqualified to serve as a senator, because her comments are so outrageous.”

They both have the initial “A” in their names and when people talk about them the word “senate” is thrown around, but that’s where the similarities end. Judd’s comments may be on the liberal end of the spectrum, but they are not “outrageous” in the way that Akin’s uneducated comments were. Last I checked, Ashley Judd understands actual biology.

Because she’s a lesbian.

That, sadly, seems to be the logic behind The Daily Caller’s daily tally of how many times Rachel Maddow has said the words ”vagina” or “vaginal” on her show. No, I’m not making this up: someone at the conservative news site kept track of the 58 V-bombs that Maddow dropped February 14th until February 24, when she was discussing the Virginia’s anti-abortion transvaginal ultrasound bill. I’m not sure why it’s newsworthy that someone said the word “vaginal” when discussing a transvaginal ultrasound. Is it because vaginas are dirty and bad? Perhaps Maddow should have said “trans-wee-wee” instead?  Sounds like someone at the Daily Caller is a liiiiittle more preoccupied with the vajajay than Rachel Maddow herself may be. [Daily Caller]
