"I'm not a quitter and my belief is we're going to take this thing forward," Akin said.

I say he's out by the end of the week.

/hope I'm wrong

The deadline to withdraw from that race is tomorrow.

I'm sure Claire McCaskill wants the GOP to carry their little retard baby to term.

I find it amusing that the GOP is starting to become worse than Democrats at being a well-organized political machine. Shouldn't they have some sort of political amniocentesis at their disposal?

The GOP got Falcon Punched by the Tea Party a little while back and now the whole thing has gone to hell.

They want him on the ticket so republicans will show up to vote at all. If they think there is no R candidate, they might stay home, leaving that toss-up state to Obama.

Exactly. I want to keep talking about him. I want to find pictures of him and Tim Ryan signing the "It's Not Rape if You Didn't Beat Her First" bill.

If women really want to stop getting screwed by creepy men then don't know, they should just stop voting Republican.

Don't count us out: MO can be incredibly short-sighted. If you get out of the I-70 corridor, there is an astonishing lack of reason and logic.
 
2012-08-20 03:00:44 PM  
That is a fantastic headline.

Well done Subbie!
 
2012-08-20 03:01:18 PM  

consider this: Talk about beating a dead horse.


Awwww....it's so sad isn't it? You had a message to get out about how Joe Biden hurt your feelings, and you can't because the whole country is talking about what an abhorrent piece of shiat your party nominated for United States Senate.

Clearly, you are the real victim here.

following his "legitimate rape" flap.

Akin's flap was legitimately raped? I hadn't heard that.

/Headline is awesome.

Not gonna happen.

Some of the worst misogynists are women, as depressing as that sounds.

They'll be dredging him from the bottom of the river by 10 p.m. if that's the case. The GOP is burned.
 
2012-08-20 03:03:20 PM  
Prob a good move, I don't think women are even allowed to vote in Missora anyways...
 
2012-08-20 03:03:26 PM  
I'm sure he'll be getting plenty of phone calls today from his party colleagues encouraging him to "take some time off for family".

This happened YESTERDAY. The corpse hasn't even reached room temperature yet.

// doubleplus good if'n you add the whole "Akin might be a tard" thing

This.

I can't think of a better metaphor for the modern GOP than the Mountain Dew "Name our Next Flavor" story from last week. In this case, The Mt Dew is the GOP and the Tea Party is (accidentally) 4Chan.

Meh. If this was a legitimate problem, the GOP has ways to to try to shut that whole thing down.

This. He may still win. It's not like he's running for Mayor of San Francisco.

Not to worry, it's a "legitimate" beating, so the horse has the biological ability to shut the whole thing down.

TPN (Tea Party Nation) is calling for him to resign from the race.
 
2012-08-20 03:08:22 PM  
First of all, from what I understand from political scientists, withdrawing from a campaign because of a gotcha question is really rare. If it's a legitimate question, the body politic has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. Let's assume that maybe that didn't work, or something, I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the gotcha journalist and not attacking the candidate.
 
2012-08-20 03:08:50 PM  
Quitting before it is over, that is Palin gig, not his.
 
2012-08-20 03:09:16 PM  
He can actually drop out up until sometime in late September. If he doesn't do it by tomorrow's deadline, though, he has to pay for the costs of reprinting all the ballots, and there are people who would be pretty happy to pick up the tab. Really doubt he'll be on the ballot in november, sadly.

"Gushin' Grannies" would be a great name.

The GOP has announced that they will be spending zero dollars on his campaign. He'll be gone tomorrow. The first rule of being a tea party republican is" never let them know how crazy ignorant we really are".
 
2012-08-20 03:10:35 PM  
That is a legitimate headline, subby.
 
2012-08-20 03:10:54 PM
