* Another bizarre statement from Republican Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri has women across the country wondering why the Republican candidate continues to insult women. Republican Todd Akin was the candidate that had a stupid statement about rape.
....Speaking to Charles Jaco on the Jaco Report on St. Louis’s Fox station, Akin was answering a question about allowing abortions in the case of rape. He said, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Todd Akin has already demonstrated that he is a moron, but he had to remind us again. The Kansas City Star's Midwest Democracy has the latest ignorant comment from Republican Todd Akin:
More than a month after his comments about “legitimate rape” nearly derailed his campaign for U.S. Senate, Republican Todd Akin said Thursday that it has become clear to him that he will triumph over Democratic incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill this fall.
Part of his confidence, he said, comes from McCaskill's demeanor during their debate last week, which he said was not as "ladylike" as it was when she faced off with Republican Jim Talent in 2006.
“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.”
I don't know about you, but a person like Todd Akin is a Neanderthal. Todd Akin's idea of a woman acting 'ladylike' would be a woman who sits quietly in the corner, says nothing, and allows the men to make decisions for her. I have some news for Todd Akin----
Wake up, Mr. Akin. It is 2012 and this isn't the 1950's!
I'm pulling for Claire McCaskill and I hope that the people in Missouri decide to move forward with her, instead of back to the dark ages with Todd Akin.
