The Supreme Court ruled Monday that the owners of Hobby Lobby could not be compelled under the law to cover the cost of abortifacients for their employees, prompting a great, big collective meltdown on the Left.

And although many silly and idiotic things have so far been said in response to the ruling, most of it bordering on parody, the award for dumbest reaction goes to Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., who displayed on Monday his unique gift for having no idea what the hell he is talking about:

Where do we start? With the fact that Viagra is not an abortifacient or with the rank sexism of Takano suggesting that decisions from the Supreme Court be evaluated according to the genitalia of its justices?

Good grief. This is your Congress, America.
