Todd Akin Was Never Accused of Rape -- Unlike Bill Clinton

"Democratic PACs spent $1.5 million on behalf of Akin to ensure his Republican primary victory"? I keep hearing this but it is never substantiated. It seems to be a "Republican Establishment" talking point to get rid of a maverick conservative who will not "fall in line".

McCaskill wants to run against Akin. Missourians know that. It is evident in at least one of her ads. Dems who felt no need to vote D in primaries where there was no contest for their candidate, crossed over and voted Akin to give Millionaire Claire what she wants.
Which is worse, Rep. Todd Akin's, R-Mo., ignorance about human anatomy -- or the way Republicans jump, run and hide when the Democrat-media complex decides they should?

Akin is the Republican candidate for a crucial Senate seat in Missouri. In an interview, he said that he believed that pregnancy following an act of rape is "really rare -- if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down."

Incredibly dumb. The married father of six, including two daughters, apologized the next day and then recorded an ad apologizing yet...
