This guy is an ignorant,sexist, tea-bagging freak .. Current Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill,says she does not want him pushed out of the race. Of course she doesn't want them to push him out!
How many people get so lucky as to have their opponent commit political suicide for them? She probably did a happy dance...
Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) justified his extreme opposition to abortion by claiming that victims of "legitimate rape" rarely get pregnant.
In an interview with on Sunday, the GOP Senate nominee was asked if he supported abortion in the case of rape.
"From what I understand from doctors, that's really rare," said Akin said of pregnancy caused by rape. "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let's assume maybe that didn't work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist."
Akin won a 3-way on Aug. 7 for the rights to a November battle against incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.). McCaskill says she is "stunned" by Akin's Sunday comments.
