For the last two weeks, Clay Aiken has been using Twitter to defend his name.

After Missouri Congressman Todd Akin, a conservative Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, caused a political firestorm on August 19 with his comments that “legitimate rape” couldn’t lead to pregnancy, Aiken went on the defensive.

He started by sharing his general distaste for the politician with a similar name.

Aiken then began retweeting some funny comments in regards to his own knowledge of the female body.

Though he poked fun, Aiken also wanted to be very clear about his stance on the issue.

And let everyone out there know that he is counting down the days until this year’s election is over and he can finally watch his favorite TV shows in peace.

You might have read about John Rich’s Twitter beef with Aiken over a comment he made during the run of the GOP convention, but it seems Aiken isn’t taking it to heart. Instead he’s snapping back with his own sassy comments.

At the end of the day though, Clay just really wants Cher to know that he’s not so bad.
