Todd Akin! Oh, No You Didn’t!

HE JUST can’t help himself.

From the Kansas City Star:

“I think we have a very clear path to victory, and apparently Claire McCaskill thinks we do, too, because she was very aggressive at the debate, which was quite different than it was when she ran against Jim Talent,” Akin said. “She had a confidence and was much more ladylike (in 2006), but in the debate on Friday she came out swinging, and I think that’s because she feels threatened.”

Ah, yes, that classic code word, “aggressive.” Can’t have a female going for what she wants and coming “out swinging.”

But who exactly is threatened here? Why, it’s Missouri’s very own Neanderthal Man, Todd Akin, who is representing the Grand Old Party perfectly.

    What is so sad and so damning is this vile piece of work might actually get more votes. I am no fan of McCaskil but the naked racism, misogyny and homophobia that is the repugnantklan/teabagger/UBERChristian base, the bone crushing hypocrisy and stupidity of those who vote for the likes of Akins is depressing, so very depressing to have to accept is still part of the American character.

    I got a robocall from Akin today, saying that it’s time for all good Republicans to step up, or something like that, so they can win the Senate.

    Apparently, they’re casting the net pretty wide.
