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

Can we have a national "Kick Todd Akin in the Nuts" day?

The proceeds could go towards cancer.

The difference is that cancer patients don't deserve their pain and sadness.

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.

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.

If Claire McCaskill's victory and this debacle doesn't force the Republican Party to consider competency when they nominate these farking retards, nothing will.

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Cripes that was a whiny, passive-aggressive, bitter concession speech.

I'm looking forward to Allen West's. It will probably make Akin sound like Adlai Stevenson.

Thanks Todd! Couldn't have done it without you!

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."

I'm sure he believes he wasn't conservative enough. I hope all conservatives feel that way.

So, Republicans, have you got it through your thick skulls that there is nothing good about rape?

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!

Though this is great news, I'm still saddened by the fact that these rape apologist assclowns only got an electoral beating because they happened to be vocal about it.

Their misguided views are still an accepted standard amongst many in the far right currently holding public office. They'll always be looking for ways to subtly inject their positions into legislation, and, well, that just peeves me pretty bad.

Still, a win is a win. I'd say this is a great day for common sense.

Ted Kennedy's Brain Tumor: If Claire McCaskill's victory and this debacle doesn't force the Republican Party to consider competency when they nominate these farking retards, nothing will.

You're referring to the American Republican Party? The one in the United States? The one led by people like George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and Karl Rove?

THAT Republican Party? Really?

That's surprisingly self-aware of him! I can easily see how...

Oh, wait, I thought that said "compares himself to cancer."

Todd who? We only talk about winners on election night.

In other news: Way to go, Sen. McCaskill.

Now, from what I've heard from doctors, you have to remove his head from his rectum before any legitimate rape can occur.
