Ripped From the Headlines

Remember failed Senate candidate Todd Akin whose assertion that women who've been "legitimately" raped have an inner shutdown mechanism that prevents them from becoming impregnated by the attack derailed his candidacy? In an example of art imitating life, his controversial remarks were the inspiration for the March 27 episode of Law and Order: SVU. "Now this is surreal," tweeted Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, who beat Akin in November.
