Nobody likes to lose their job, and politicians are no exception. This week we have the politician who thinks that there are 57 states in the Union…
No—it was Representative Todd Akin from right here in Missouri who everyone wants to fire: Here’s his big quote that shook the nation:
Rep. Akin, who is running against Democratic incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill in Missouri, sparked outrage when he said in an Aug. 19 interview that “legitimate rape” rarely leads to pregnancy because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
And of course, the whole world was trying to figure what he meant by “legitimate” even though most of us in Missouri knew exactly what he meant: Sort of like when the black stripper accused the Duke Lacrosse boys of a rape, that never happened. You know…did she say “Yes?’ Did she lie? Or did he knock her unconscious with a baseball bat?
Were you BOTH drunk that night?
So, it was stupid—but not anymore stupid than a President not knowing how many states there are. Atkin is not a doctor.
Dick Morris right away put into everyone’s mind that the Republicans would lose the majority in the Senate and therefore Obamacare would stay, if Akin stayed in the race—He HAD to go.
They are making Akin look like a right-wing nut job. Maybe he is but HEY…compare him to Joe Biden.
When you are running against a President who has by the stroke of his pen, ordered all Catholics (and all the rest of us too) to pay for abortions— You have to wonder—just how stupid they think the people from Missouri are?
(Don’t answer that.)
Obama–a President who has no clue how many states are in HIS union and who hopes his own daughters do not have any legitimate babies… came right out and accused Todd of having the scientific mind of a Nancy Pelosi.
Now…compare Todd’s blunder to Florida’s former Republican governor, Charlie Crist: Another life long career Republican politician who lost his last race in Florida to Marco Rubio, so now he is going to change parties, and go to the Democratic Convention and back Obama.
He just wants to keep making the big bucks. So, he changed parties. Such integrity.
At least Todd Atkin remains a loyal Republican.
What is really disconcerting is that the Republican party, is so desperate to change leaders that they attack a man who made a simple stupid verbal mistake, instead of COMPARING him to the man in the White House, who is fundamentally destroying the country.
Who made the bigger mistake in this? Charlie or Todd?
In the meantime: I remain legitimately baffled.
