Scott Brown calls for Todd Akin to drop out of Senate race
Twitchy ^ | 08/20/2012 | Twitchy Staff

Posted on 08/20/2012 10:25:40 AM PDT by nhwingut

As a husband and father of two young women, I found Todd Akin’s comments about women and rape outrageous, inappropriate and wrong. There is no place in our public discourse for this type of offensive thinking. Not only should he apologize, but I believe Rep. Akin’s statement was so far out of bounds that he should resign the nomination for US Senate in Missouri.

He needs to withdraw immediately so we can put someone in there with time to campaign. Aken is toast. No one with an IQ over room temperature would vote for him now.

I see the squishy segment of the GOP is the first to call for him to withdraw.

The dumb slut vote is VERY important in Massachusetts.

This wingnut said that if a woman is raped, her body has a way to prevent pregnancy. WTF!

Yeah. Because woman have away to shut down getting pregnant when raped.

Only squishes think this is outrageous.

I live in realville. This guy is toast. And the seat is gone if he stays in to satisfy his ego.

Daughter rape = bad
Offering to auction them off for marriage in front of a televised crowd = good

I get it. /sarc

I call for him to withdraw, and I'm no "squish".

Sen. Johnson (Tea Party-WI) also called on him to withdraw. And Johnson isn’t squishy.

Time for Akin to “spend more time with his family”.

I was remarking on the fact that they were first. I believe the guy is toast as well. No matter what he meant to say, this one will haunt him.

Yep. We need this seat to repeal Obamcare.

It’s a freakin’ layup. Any GOPer would be up by 15 points. Yet this weirdo loses it for us.

I could care less about Todd Aikin. I want Claire gone and to take the Senate to get rid of Obamacare. He needs to take a hike.

Everyone should be hoping Akin drops out. This seat was likely Republican, and now it’s a toss up, at BEST.

Can he be replaced on the ballot? I remember someone saying 8/21 is the deadline.

I just hope his replacement isn’t Alan Keyes.

But Joe (put you back in chains) Biden isn't asked to drop out of the race?! Biden is certifiable and everyone thinks he is so cute!

LOL!

Luckily there were two decent candidates with a respectable showing in the primary, Sarah Steelman and John Brunner. Claire was absolutely giddy when Akin won the primary, and now we see why. She’s probably praying to the heavens right now he’s not replaced, since that’s the only way she’ll win.

Akin has made a gaffe that no Republican candidate can ever recover from. Yes, if he was a Democrat he would get a pass. A Democrat can say just about anything and the lamestream media will provide cover. It isn’t fair, but life isn’t fair.

It doesn’t matter how good of a candidate Akin might have been. He is now toast. If he does not step down, then the Democrat will win the seat.

Plus, Akin will pull down conservative candidates all over the country. Every Democrat running for any office in the U.S. will be running ads with Akin as the poster child for the conservative “war on women.”
