Dopier Rape Comment: Todd Akin Or Brit MP Who Says Sex With Sleeping Woman Is Just "Bad Manners?"

This isn't even as dumb as what Congressman Todd Akin thinks about rape.
The Todd Akin "legitimate rape" saga wages on, but the Missouri Senate hopeful has some competition in the "dumbest rape comment" department.

Enter British MP George Galloway, who said -- amongst other idiotic bumblings -- over the weekend that having sex with a woman while she sleeps isn't rape, it's just "bad sexual etiquette."

He went further, noting that "not everybody needs to be asked prior to each insertion."

Akin, as we're sure you're aware, raised a stir with his belief that "From what I understand from doctors...if it's a legitimate rape the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing (pregnancy) down. But let's assume that maybe that didn't work, or something..."

Let's not "assume" anything -- as you know, women don't possess some magical power to wish away a pregnancy.

Both pols have come under fire from members of their own respective political parties -- several prominent Republicans have asked Akin to bow out of his race to unseat Senator Claire McCaskill. He's refused.

Both comments go beyond the realm of stupid -- but the burning question remains: which is stupider?
