Newt Gingrich advises women upset about GOP’s rape comments to just “get over it”

Were you one of the many people outraged to hear Richard Mourdock say he opposes abortion in cases of rape because “it’s something God intended”? Are you tired of regularly hearing conservative politicians–from Todd Akin to Roger Rivard–make awful statements downplaying rape? Pissed that this trend, though certainly not new, really seems to be a pattern these days?

Well, Newt Gingrich has some advice for you:

“Every candidate I know, every decent American I know condemns rape. OK, so why can’t people like Stephanie Cutter get over it?”

Feel better?
