He is the gift that keeps on giving and refuses to go away.
After issuing a contrived apology for implying that rape victims are lying about their pregnancies, because their magical uteruses… uteri… are able to detect “legitimate” rape and block conception, and therefore the women seeking to terminate their pregnancies must be lying about being raped, numerous GOP leaders have come forward to encourage him to go away.
But no… like a fat guy in front of the buffet, Akin just refuses to step aside. He thinks he’s too good. He thinks he deserves to continue to Election Day. He blames the “liberal media,” which is apparently the boogieman under the bed of every fucktard who sticks his foot in his mouth. And now the effects of his asshattery are beginning to show.
What a difference one TV interview can make. Embattled Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill has now jumped to a 10-point lead over her Republican challenger, Congressman Todd Akin, in Missouri’s U.S. Senate race. Most Missouri Republicans want Akin to quit the race while most Missouri Democrats want him to stay.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Show Me State finds McCaskill earning 48% support to Akin’s 38%. Nine percent (9%) like some other candidate in the race, and five percent (5%) are undecided.
But apparently, that doesn’t matter. Akin puts his own delusional spin on the situation. Apparently his managing to lose a fairly comfortable lead in the polls and then falling behind by an uncomfortable margin just means his opponent is weak.
“The fact that Claire McCaskill is only polling at 48% after 72 hours of constant negative attacks on Todd Akin shows just how weak she is. If she can’t break fifty percent after a week like this, Democrats should ask Claire to step down. Todd is in this race to win; we will close this gap and win in November with the support of the grassroots in Missouri and across America.”
Dude! Do us all a favor and unass the AO. You are embarrassing yourself. At this point, if you showed up in a pair of soiled tidy-whities and proceeded to squat in the shoe section of Wal-Mart, it would be less humiliating than continuing this insanity.
