I think his campaign manager is his own son, so... I think he might be telling the truth.

On "ladylike," Tyler accused Democrats of being overly sensitive.

"We don't say 'ladylike or gentlemanly?' Did you notice how the president of the United States was introduced in his last speech? 'Ladies and gentlemen, the president of the United States. All those people must have been offended right?" he said. "I lost my subscription to the candidate's guide to political correctness. Help me out how do I refer to the president's wife? Isn't she the First Lady?"



Is that guy mentally retarded? I can't think of any other explanation.

Yeah, maybe. But your planners are retarded.

If I had a choice between admitting to being a Newt Gingrich advisor and admitting to being that Italian cruise captain that abandoned ship I'd be putting on a sailor's hat.

I bet he wins. If you had any lingering doubts about the quality if your fellow citizens, his victory will dispel them.

FTFA: "You should ask Joe Biden if putting African Americans back in chains is something he would like to retract," he said.

There had to be a better way to phrase this.

The plan was obviously rape. Lots and lots of rape.

He's going to win, and it's not going to be close. People will happily ignore his inane comment on rape for the greater good of not letting the godless heathen socialist party win.

You're thinking too short-term. For the Republicans, this is a big moment where their twisted beliefs can be held up and backed by a desperate party that knows its time is coming. For the Democrats, it's a choice between having six weeks to bash around the Republican Platform or six years.

In reality, the Republican Party of old would have bought out Akin or simply disavowed him, letting him lose for being too blunt about the party platform. Today, the Republicans are so scared of losing that they're empowering some pathetic loser who will now play Palin and drive the moderates away in droves. Yeah, the state of Missouri will not be served well by him. Then again, any place with Republican representatives is not being served well at all regardless.

The Republicans are continuing to make a lot of bad moves. The saddest thing is how smug they're being about it, feigning confidence as they shiat their pants.

I don't think they are feigning confidence. I think they are simply delusional. Just look at the insistence that the polls are biased.

So they planned on being rightwing religious nuts? Sounds about right.

It's closer than it should be, but Nate's still showing McCaskill as the favorite.

Man, take a look at that photo. Is that creepy, or what? Every single member of his family looks like him. That girl in the middle, LOOK at her. She has the cheekbones of the 65-year-old man standing in front of her. And she has the forehead and heavy brow of the guy standing next to him - my God, it's like a Photoshop. Even the babies have a little of it going on.

If that doesn't plunge deep into the Uncanny Valley for you, then I haven't been watching enough Japanese android videos. And I actually LIKE Robert Zemeckis's mo-cap movies, so my uncanny tolerance is pretty high.

Sorry, quoted wrong person. Was going for the Blackadder theme, not calling you clueless.

Yet another contextually challenged Conservative. I always wonder if the Con in question is actually that obtuse or if they just think their constitutes are idiots. Obviously, it depends on the individual, but I wonder what the ratio is.
