quatchi: Beat him over the nose with a rolled up copy of his own crappy votes until he goes away.
czetie: It's a very smart strategy. She gets to look like she's focusing on the issues, plus every time she doesn't bring up Akin's rape comments, the news report will mention that she didn't bring up Akin's rape comments, reminding everybody about Akin's rape comments.And anyway, it's not like there's anybody out there who doesn't already know about Akin's rape comments.
Benevolent Misanthrope: So, what's the over/under on how long it will take Akin to get past this whole "legitimate rape" thing? Because I gotta say - in my experience, the voting populace has the hindsight of a muthafarking GNAT. Let's hope her people are smart enough to shadow-play this in the press for months while they keep her above it all.But the Dems always seem to disappoint me.

Akin makes one rape comment and suddenly it's like "Hey, did you hear about Akin's rape comments?" It's like you've never heard of someone named Akin making rape comments before. How about we follow McCaskill's lead and just move on from Akin's rape comments and talk about something not involving Akin's rape comments?
gameshowhost: Am I the only one that read the headline as "to the rape"?
ontariolightning: What if he beats her? Wouldn't that ruin her political career and well, life?
JAYoung: Has Akin brought up "legitimate veterans" yet?

silo123j: I wish for a return to the proper ways...when people who were worthy and intelligent, worked and compromised and made laws.
belgianguy: Smart strategy, the Rapepublicans will still need quite some time to put out the rape flames caused by these legitimate rape versus illegitimate rape rape accusations. Though I don't rape really think McCaskill has it in the rape bag just yet, his base knows what rape he stands for and probably isn't all that rape fazed by such rape statements. Therefore rape it's rather rape smart rape to focus rape rape on rape rape rape veterans.
silo123j: Go Claire Go!We need you in the Senate, classy lady. We need more like you.I wish for a return to the proper ways...when people who were worthy and intelligent, worked and compromised and made laws.

Dr Dreidel: If she hops on the rape train, she looks like another mean ol' lib, piling on a decent-hearted American who already apologized for upsetting the Vaginated-Americans so what's with you libs, anyway?If she sticks to everything else, she prevents him from getting a foothold anywhere. Considering his options are basically "run right" and "turn hard starboard and push the pedal through the floor", he's already got very few options for footholds. Attacking his support of the troops cuts off that much more area for him to find a soft landing.// is Howard Dean back in charge of the DNC?// how are they suddenly so competent again?
CokeBear: If we keep calling Todd Akin the Rape Candidate, I'm concerned that people not following the news closely enough might mistakenly think that he actually raped someone.And we can't have people forming mistaken beliefs based on news stories they were only half listening to while trying to juggle making breakfast for the kids & getting them ready for school while stopping the kids from fighting with each other...
moops: You said 'rape' 16 times.
mr bad example: They should start referring to him as "the rape candidate."
