Vito Barbieri

This was apparently the only guy who slept through his high school sex-ed class:

 Republican State Representative Vito Barbieri from the state of Idaho apparently believes that a woman's vagina has some sort of direct passageway to her stomach. (How else could the woman's poo come out?) This rather impressive display of anatomical ignorance came during an Idaho House State Affairs Committee hearing where the members heard testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine. Vito asked Dr. Julie Madsen, who was testifying against the bill, if women could simply swallow a camera so that doctors could perform remote gynecological exams. Madsen had to explain that "swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina."

If the Republic Party ever dissolves, comics around the world will fill the streets in protest.

Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin is more upset about this than anyone. His all-time record has been broken; his one claim to fame has been usurped.

Evidently, if a woman really didn't want to get raped, she could just suck her stomach in and the vagina would retreat behind her belly button.
