In one fantastically wingnutty segment, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer managed to compare Todd Akin to Jesus Christ -- as well as a victim of rape.

FISCHER: Denis Prager wants him out, Charles Krauthammer wants him out, Hugh Hewitt wants him out, Ann Coulter wants him out, The National Review editorial board wants him out, The Wall Street Journal editorial board wants him out, The Tea Party Express wants him out. Virtually nobody other than the Family Research Council and yours truly even Rush, apparently now is out saying he ought to step aside.

So everybody is gang tackling, uh, Todd Akin. Now you talk about a um, forceable, uh, situation, you talk about somebody being a victim of kind of forceable assault, that would be Todd Akin.

As always, the real victims of bigotry and discrimination in this country are white Christian conservatives.
