Craziest Republican of the day: Mike Huckabee and Rep. Steve King -- it's a tie!

(Ed. note: I would just like to note that this is Rep. King's ninth appearance as CRD. Congratulations, King Krazy! No one else is even close. And when your craziness stands out in today's Republican Party, you know you've accomplished something truly special. For the last two, with links to the others, see here and here. -- MJWS)

You know you're in trouble as a Republican when the only conservative media personality who will give you a friendly interview is Mike Huckabee. Yes, disgraced Rep. Todd Akin went to Mike to explain himself over his "legitimate rape" comments and Mike responded with some massive stupidity of his own, suggesting that rapes, though "horrible tragedies," had produced admirable human beings.

And then Rep. Steve King, one of the more conservative members of Congress, told an Iowa reporter  that he had "never heard of a girl getting pregnant from statutory rape or incest." Now, King may think that he's a bit more clever than Akin because he added this little bit of a disclaimer:

Well I just haven't heard of that being a circumstance that's been brought to me in any personal way and I'd be open to discussion about that subject matter.

Glad he cleared that up.

I just can't decide who is crazier or dumber, so I'll have to call it a draw.
