In a stunning statement that sounded like it came straight from the Todd Akin School of Biology, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) said that military rapes are caused by “the hormone level created by nature.” And here we thought rape was caused by rapists! Silly us.

Gee whiz, you should really have to pass an IQ test to be eligible for public office.
