This twerp isn't doing anybody any favors by staying in the race, except for Sen. Claire McCaskill.

Considering the ego it takes to be a politician in the first place, I'm going to say no: he's completely oblivious to anything outside his own echo chamber

That's not real irony, subs. That's Alanis IronyTM.

If we really didn't want him to run, we have ways to shut that whole thing down.

There is a double-entrendre that makes it slightly more ironic than rain on you wedding day.

Actually a lot of people want him to stay in and keep going. Just not the ones he's screwing.

He probably gets just enough letters from teabaggers and democrats to lead him to believe he has a broad support base.

This. Despite how much they claim otherwise, politicians are in it for themselves. They want power, and they know that power leads to money. Lots and lots of it.

Has anybody compared Todd Akin's staying in the race against near-universal objections to the very subject about which he demonstrated his ignorance? Because that would be a very original and thought-provoking thing to do.

9 out of 10 people enjoy gang rape.

"The word 'legitimate' never has a good reason to be standing next to the word 'rape,'" he said while apologizing for his choice of words.

He still thinks this is what he said wrong...........

As long as no one really wants him in there, I think it counts as a legitimate campaign, and the body politic has ways of shutting him down. But if the public kinda wants him there and is only pretending to struggle, it's not a legitimate campaign.

No, it's just the framing. He continually says he "got one little word wrong", because then he can say it was liberal pencil-necks that are persecuting him for making one little mistake.

Anyone who goes back and reads the transcript would see that doesn't fly, but anyone who goes back and reads transcripts thinks Obama said you didn't build that anyway, so there's no loss.

It would only work if he actually quit, really he's standing by his principals. No aborting, ever.

Maybe that's just what he wants you to focus on. But then again, he's not known for being terribly bright.

You guys are kidding yourselves.

There is a huge number of people, albeit nothing like a majority but still more than anyone realizes, that ARE TOTALLY IN FAVOR of Akin and everything he has said so far.

They totally believe all that crap he said and have all their putrid lives and are delighted that someone had the "courage" to say it out loud. He may well win his race because they are energized to go vote while the "lefties" are too stupid or cowed or lazy to go vote.

So what would he withdraw for? To spill it all over the floor? No way.

To be fair, this is the same country where people don't believe Obama was born in the US or that the moon landing was fake or that global warming has nothing to do with pollution.

He shouldn't withdraw. He is just the kind of man to drive a firm wedge between the GOP and the moderates. I implore the GOP to embrace him as a mold to fashion all of their candidates on.

I look forward to the day after the election--and every day after that, that he can get anyone in the press to pay attention to him--hearing him complain that he was crucified by the liberal media.

What's kind of ironic is that Fark is a mostly-male enclave, and this will actually be played out by women. Particularly, religious, conservative women who don't believe in rape, but whose blood boils whenever they hear an arrogant dipnozzle like this demonstrate his ignorance. Cranky old white men don't really care much, or else they're utterly behind him on this crap. Women, outside of a very small number of the utterly brainwashed, know better. Liberal women wouldn't go anywhere near this guy. So it's up to non-crazy conservative women to abandon him in droves.

"don't believe in rape" was supposed to be "oppose abortion"
 
2012-08-28 05:17:54 PM
His remarks are the intellectual justification for the plank in the Republican platform condemning all abortions, even in cases of incest and rape. He is not alone by a long shot, and he knows it.

Dude doesn't understand that "NO" means "Please drop out, you're pissing in the well for the rest of us" "NO!"

No wonder he's so soft on the concept of rape...

You missed the best part subby..... with bonus Kirk Cameron!

Because, anytime you need the opinion about someone who is saying something really stupid because of their religious beliefs, Kirk is the first guy that comes to mind.

I hear the joke hasn't been forced if someone laughs. Anyone? Please?
