Sometimes people say stupid things, and sometimes those people are politicians, so I’ve decided to gather the most idiotic quotes from politicians around the U.S. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try and shut the whole thing down.”- Missouri representative, Tom Akin, and licensed physician. “We should understand that you don’t deal with nations like Russia and China by embracing arm-in-arm and singing kumbaya.”- Texas senator, Tom Cruz. Weird, I thought that’s what we’re supposed to do. “Women are best suited for secretarial work, decorating cakes and counter sales, like selling lingerie.” – Larry Koon,…

She also celebrates Hanukkah. For Hanukkah, she has a big family gathering at her house with a bunch of other people. They say blessings and have a big feast. And who could forget about presents?
