“I think we have a very clear path to victory, and apparently Claire McCaskill thinks we do, too, because she was very aggressive at the debate, which was quite different than it was when she ran against Jim Talent... She had a confidence and was much more ladylike [in 2006], but in the debate on Friday she came out swinging, and I think that’s because she feels threatened.”—Todd Akin is nostalgic for a more “ladylike” Claire McCaskill.
“If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”—The infamous remarks, by GOP Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin, which may indeed have been the irreparable deathblow to his candidacy. Despite calls from prominent Republicans for his withdrawal, Akin stuck it out, and tonight, has been defeated by Missouri incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill, as projected by NBC News.
“It is beyond comprehension that someone can be so ignorant about the emotional and physical trauma brought on by rape. The ideas that Todd Akin has expressed about the serious crime of rape and the impact on its victims are offensive.”—
The perpetual out-of-touch GOP, both socially and economically.
