The campaign will take small contributions, "respect them, and say 'God, multiply it. Make it pay,' " Lulli Akin said. "It brought us through the primary, same way. We're gonna see it again, because God wants to be honored."


I think Democrats should send a slice of bread and a fish to the Akin campaign.


If nothing else let's at least all send a bit fish. Surely his campaign page must list an address for campaign contributions.

Naw that wasn't the whole story. Jesus was ABLE to spread the wealth because fish and bread taxes were at their lowest levels in a decade, so he was able to invest.

what_now: Yeah, she's an idiot with an asshole for a husband for sure, but the guy won a primary and now the party wants to dump him for someone else.

Either admit that the primary elections are nonsense, or stick with the person who got the most votes. No fng mulligans.


Depends on how retarded an action a person commits. Let's say that the guy who won the primary then immediately and legitimately raped six nuns right on the stage in front of all the cameras. Are you saying that the party shouldn't ask him to step down or that they should continue to fund him fully?

They're not demanding (just "suggesting") he step down, they're taking no action to force him. All they are doing is refusing to spend money on someone who's shown himself to be a jackass.

She's not helping. Akin is in even more trouble with the GOP now. They don't want anyone scrutinizing their structure, policies and methods too closely. They do not want anyone to see that the party leadership and money bags decide who will a candidate. Akin step over the line and embarrassed the GOP. They have to hang him out to dry so that they won't look just as foolish as he is. They cannot afford to offend those voters who have vaginas by supporting him.

Vegan Meat Popsicle: meat0918: I'd like to take this moment to thank the Catholic priest that told the congregation during a homily that the miracle Jesus performed was not conjuring up a bunch of food, but getting people from disparate backgrounds to share the food they had brought with them.

I've never understood the point of taking the magic out of god by insisting upon logical explanations for alleged miracles. If god's only magic is a silver tongue, then what kind of god is he really?


A Human one, and thus the example being attainable and able to live up to.

This.

Perhaps she needs to spend some time at a rape crisis center counseling women (and men, I guess) who've been legitimately and illegitimately raped to see what it does to them.

Nah, probably won't work. Why would willfully ignorant people want to change?

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: DoBeDoBeDo: Also I don't think either applies to compaining. Jesus was prettly clear on the separation of Church and State with the whole Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's and unto the Lord that which is the Lord's.

Jesus would not have talked about campaigns, because the concept did not exist when he was alive, at least not in the part of the world he was alive in. Leaders were born, and their power derived from farcical aquatic ceremonies, not a mandate from the masses. There's lots of things Jesus didn't talk about, because he died before they existed.


? Democratic republics existed ~600 years before Jesus arrived on the scene. At the time he was living Rome was an Empire, the fall of the First Republic happening ~50 years before his birth. And in Rome, at that time at least, the power was derived from who defeated who in battle, not so much from bloodlines.

Sofa King Smart: on a related derp note... I clicked through some cspan programming this weekend... one was some sort of Republican Women conference... there was some author speaking and taking questions... some old lady stands up and asks about our government being infiltrated at the highest levels by the Muslim Brotherhood and could they enact Shiria law in this country... they speaker.. said yes it's troubling but it isn't just Obama it started with Bush trying to be 'politically correct' and bringing these muslims into positions in our military, cia, fbi, etc, etc...

then I clicked over later and there was some sort of 'values voter summit' and Kirk Cameron was speaking about how one party doesn't want god in their platform and the other party realizes that god is the platform...(wild cheers)... where have these nutbags come from? do they not ever get out of their little echo chambers?

then later there was some 'author' speaking about his book '50 things that liberals love to hate' speaking at what appeared to be a gathering of military personnel... looked like some kind of glenn beck guy... why is cspan giving these lunatic fringe any air time at all... are they just trying to frighten us non insane people?


Dear Republicans: People like this are why I will never vote for any Republican, anywhere, even the manifestly non-crazy ones. Because even the so-called "sane" conservatives, when they have a majority, caucus with these f*cking morons and give them opportunities to inflict their stupidity on us all.

Diogenes: It would be completely immoral and implausible, but people who make statements belittling the seriousness of rape should be raped themselves. Something for them to reflect on before they go making ridiculous, careless, and inhumane statements the next time.


I pride myself on rarely wishing harm on other humans, but in this case, I agree. Something needs to be done to change the lack of perspective of these right wing extremists. Experiencing the trauma they are belittling may well cure their callous nature, so yeah, THIS.

No, Lulli, "rape" is a forced sexual encounter.

What the Republicans are doing is telling you to STFU and go the fark away. That they would rather concede a swing seat in the Senate (and possibly the Senate) than to be seen anywhere near you.

So, unless you want the baby-killers to take over the whole enchilada, 1) STFU, and 2) go away.

If what is believed about Jesus is true - that he was god incarnate - and if god is really omniscient, not only would he have known about a modern democratic republic, he could have told us exactly when and where one would arise, so certainly the concept of a political campaign wouldn't be head-scratcher.

Eh maybe at the level that it exists now but the "asking for votes" was around in the first Roman Republic. Livy actually wrote a little about the fact that "asking for votes" from the plebians rarely happened because the weighting of the votes made it useless. But "asking for votes" of the Patricians all you needed.

But either way I'm fairly certain that he'd not weigh in one way or the other as he rarely spoke of the Government.

1. Rep. Todd Akin's wife, Lulli Akin, says the Republican Party's attempts to push her husband out of the Missouri Senate race - over his false assertion that women who are raped rarely get pregnant - are like rape itself.

The republican party not giving her money is like rape.

2. Lulli Akin says in the profile that she is not turned off by the refusal of national Republicans to contribute money to the race.

Lulli akin is not turned off by the republican not giving her money.

Therefore: Lulli Akin is not turned off by being raped. Or possibly just her husband being raped, depending on how you read point 1.

Joking aside, I'm almost disappointed in the GOP for casting them aside. They spend so much time dog whistling and accusing the victims, telling women who want birth control they are sluts who must be having enormous amounts of sex, fighting planned parenthood tooth and nail (and using lies to do it). We live in a nation where most cities can't afford to stay on top of the rape kits for their justice departments and the women can't afford basic health care, and half the nation supports a candidate who wants them to have no more access to healthcare than they can afford, and encourages cities to cut services of that kind.
What would we expect after years of backwards rhetoric but someone finally thinking he has enough support to come out of that sexist closet?
