jbc: He is a legitimate cancer, and I'm glad the electorate has ways of shutting that down.
Hunter_Worthington: man, you libs just can't let something go, can you?apparently "graciousness in victory" isn't one of those "liberal values", I hear so much about.
quatchi: Guy who ran for a party that has tried over and over again to repeal Obamacare and prevent millions of people from accessing affordable health care tries to evoke empathy after his electoral loss by comparing himself to people with cancer?[quizzicaldog]Is that what I just read there?Just want to be clear that's what I just read there.
RedPhoenix122: "Help, my 15 minutes just started!"
Benni K Rok: It's very similar in terms, but moreso in scale than things like "atheist muslim" and "empty suited evil fiend".
Arkanaut: Oh shiat, he's going to be on Fox News forever now, isn't he?
Bippal: The crazy didn't get elected in my state either, although it was much closer than it should have been. They had the nerve to run adds saying people were attacking his faith after his god loves rape babies speech. Ugh .
The All-Powerful Atheismo: Can we give him cancer to even things out?
Sock Ruh Tease: Noted rapists Akin and Murdock lose, Allen West loses, Michele Bachmann wins. Meh, three out of four ain't bad.America had the guts to purge many of the crazies... I'm honestly surprised.
Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: Now, now, let's be Christian about this. God gave us free will for a reason, and that reason was for us to disqualify ourselves from national office if we lack a basic misunderstanding of biology.
ryant123: He's just an amoral psychopath. Happily, he lost.
that bosnian sniper: Hunter_Worthington: man, you libs just can't let something go, can you?apparently "graciousness in victory" isn't one of those "liberal values", I hear so much about.I think he's mad.
FormlessOne: The part I like is the hypocrisy of the Republican Party - when Todd Akin first made his repellant views public, the GOP publicly distanced themselves... and then quietly sucked back up to him once the initial media push waned.Remember that. They're not upset at his views - just at the fact that he stated them clearly, without the buzzwords and vague phrasing approved by the GOP. He wasn't wrong in their eyes, just tactless.He's should've followed Romney's example, and used vague generalities, leaned consistently on the "family values" plank, and kept his friggin' mouth shut until after the election, when he could then spend the next term putting what he really feels into action. But, no, he had to go and be all honest and shiat. There was no wiggle room for the GOP to backpedal his directly expressed craziness, and so their idea of damage control was to publicly hem & haw about his clearly expressed views, but also to privately continue funding him because, after all, he is "one of the boys."
