Things were recently starting to go well for Missouri Congressman and Senatorial candidate Todd Akin.
The GOP cold shoulder that he'd been getting since his "legitimate rape" comment from August had begun to melt away with support from the National Republican Senatorial Committee and public endorsements from Rick Santorum, Jim DeMint and Newt Gingrich. That is until he opened his mouth and offend some people again ... mostly women, again.
You see, Todd was feeling confident about how his Senate race was going, particularly after his recent debate against opponent, and expressed it in an interview with a local newspaper.
"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," he told a reporter.
Hmm. Different how, Todd? Please do tell.
"She had a confidence and was much more ladylike, but in the debate on Friday she came out swinging, and I think that's because she feels threatened."
Ah, yes. She was un-ladylike and aggressive. Hopefully next time Claire will be sure to curtsy and preface each counter-argument to Todd with "Excuse me, sir. But if I may give my humblest opinion in response. If you do not mind?"
OK, so maybe it's not as offensive as making the argument that there are some sexual assaults more genuine than others, along with a gross misunderstanding of the female reproductive system.
But, Todd needs to stop making comments in regards to the female gender, which he obviously has some seriously odd opinions.
