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.

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.

jbc: He is a legitimate cancer, and I'm glad the electorate has ways of shutting that down.


came here to say this, this guy IS a tried and true farking cancer on the ass of America

and so is his party.

Graciousness is applied only to a worthy, respectable adversary. In this case, Akin deserves no pity and should be openly mocked for his continued demonstration of being an asshole. The guy can't even give a concession speech without being a jerk.

Fark that guy. Piss on his figurative grave.

It's very similar in terms, but moreso in scale than things like "atheist muslim" and "empty suited evil fiend".

You all know what the problem is: he was too liberal. A more conservative candidate would have won.

/this is what they actually believe
 
2012-11-07 06:35:17 AM
The good news: He didn't get elected
The bad news: Obamacare won't pay for the colonoscopy to see why his ass is hurting so much this morning

So it's like cognitive dissonance only without the dissonance or very much cognition?

I wonder if this is where one of my FB friends got his inspiration. His post pretty much started with "You know that kick in the gut feeling you get when you receive a pink slip or loose a family member?"

Is Todd Aiken covered as an existing medical condition under Obamacare?

Even when his career is over, Akin is still burning bridges.

The way the right would have been gracious if the Kenyan soshulist gay Mooslim terrorist had lost.

Akin is a cretinous ass. If you want people to be gracious in victory over creeps like him, you will search in vain. If that helps you to feel superior, then so be it.

Better get a bigger TV to accommodate that forehead.

Todd Akin is a horrible person and I don't think it would be a terribly bad idea if someone would check his basement just in case....
 
2012-11-07 07:22:11 AM
All the rape talk pretty much cost the GOP the Senate. Republicans have Limbaugh and Aiken to thank for that.
 
2012-11-07 07:29:04 AM
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?


I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thought this.

If only there was a way we could give him cancer through rape.
 
2012-11-07 07:49:27 AM
Akin. Mourdock. Walsh. West out
Warren, Baldwin in.
It was a very good night for sanity.
 
2012-11-07 07:57:26 AM
Good. Maybe he'll die from it.
 
2012-11-07 08:06:46 AM
Akin added, "You know, we believe that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness come from almighty God, not an almighty government ... and we believe that the Constitution is not a list of suggestions."

Um. . . . Todd?
 
2012-11-07 08:08:37 AM
Wow as a woman I didn't think I could hate him more, then he says this so as a cancer survivor I found away. Yes I Can!

2012-11-07 08:15:54 AM
So, Republicans, have you got it through your thick skulls that there is nothing good about rape?
 
2012-11-07 08:18:57 AM
So much negativity on this thread. Think of the bright side. Since Rapeman won't being going to Washington, this opens up the possibility of a reunion tour.

So sad that the Republicans continued to funnel money towards him even after the comments, once the firestorm died down about it.
 
2012-11-07 08:22:20 AM
I'm sure he believes he wasn't conservative enough. I hope all conservatives feel that way.
 
2012-11-07 08:27:33 AM
He got a legitimate ass raping at the polls.
 
2012-11-07 08:46:43 AM
You misunderstood, Mr. Akin. You're not a person with cancer. You're a cancer.
 
2012-11-07 08:49:44 AM
He's just an amoral psychopath. Happily, he lost.
 
2012-11-07 08:50:35 AM
Here I thought the strategy of recruiting crazy loons into your party, denouncing them when they spout their loony nonsense, but still funneling them money (and so letting people see that you still support them), was sure-fire for the GOP.

Turns out, I was wrong.

My bad, GOP! My bad!

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.
 
2012-11-07 08:59:29 AM
Don't tell his heart
His Rapin' Akin heart
I just don't think he'd understand
A misogynistic joke
Is gonna lose the vote
And go down hard to poular demand

McCaskill supports abortion rights and is the first female senator from Missouri.

Congrats McCaskill, you truly deserved this, even before Akin opened his mouth.

Sadly I can't see this thread as being the one to point out Hunter_Worthington's overall correctness. In general most people like to brag about their team winning. There is graciousness in winning ie. see Obama's speech.

and Romney deserved a good Haaa haaaa but not from the President.
 
2012-11-07 09:28:44 AM
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."

Wait, so all cancer patients love God?
 
2012-11-07 09:31:53 AM
WTF did I just read? How does cancer relate to telling an electorate made up of 50%+ women that if they get raped and preggers it is because they wanted it?

They were upfront about that during the last two weeks. They openly said that having another Republican in the Senate was more important then not having an idiot in the Senate.

The Republican Party spent $700K on that loser.
