As Twitchy reported, last week, GOP Rep. Phil Gingrey foolishly gave credence to Todd Akin’s thoughts on “legitimate rape.” Shocking perhaps only to Gingrey, people didn’t take kindly to the remarks — and it seems that he didn’t take kindly to their criticism. Twitterers hoping to peruse more of his thoughts on the female reproductive system are being greeted with this when they try to access his official feed:
Understandably, they’re terribly upset:
C’mon, Rep. Gingrey. Canceling your account is pretty drastic. Why so uptight? A nice glass of wine would loosen you right up.
