....Karl Rove has repeatedly tried to push the crazies out of the Republican PartySarah Palin and Christine O'Donnell got subtle nudges, for examplebut with Todd Akin, the Senate candidate in Missouri with odd theories about rape, Rove is giving more of a shove. Right over a cliff. Bloomberg Businessweek's Sheelah Kolhatkar reports that a breakfast with Republican donors on in Tampa Thursday, Rove joked, "We should sink Todd Akin. If hes found mysteriously murdered, dont look for my whereabouts!"

We can either concede the seat to a vulnerable, publicly crooked Democrat, or we can beat her with the guy who got nominated.
Seems like a fairly obvious choice to me.
Ha Ha. RINOs are no different than RATs. Again, the Democans and Republicrats marching lockstep.
how many stupid things came out of his boy W’s mouth. Since rove is against him maybe he should stay in and hopefully win
If this is true, Rove needs to apologize pronto and make a fat donation tothe Akin campaign — one of the top rated conservatives in Congress.
Akin made a verbal boo boo and spent way too much effort apologizing.
This whole situation is ridiculous. Now we have to take every single toss up seat for the Senate.
If this is an actual quote from Rove, he’s the one that needs to be given a push out, or draged of stage with the perverbial hook! Why can’t we get the Bush’s and Rove types to go away already. There time has past!!!!
No one should pay much attention to Yahoo “news”. In the pecking order of mental illness they rank close to PMSNBC!!
And he's not intimidated by Rove and the GOPe.
Rick Tyler, former campaign manager of Newt Gingrich, is now working with the Akin campaign.
And new commercials attacking McCaskell paid for by the Akin campaign have hit the air ways countering her Leftwaffe -- No Thanks to Rove and the GOPe.
The question is, play with the cards dealt, or withdrawl. The latter option is the only one that has a quaranteed negative outcome.
Sounds like Rove got caught openly plotting the death of a candidate for the U.S. Senate ~ I believe there’s a federal law that makes it a felony to engage in such an activity when the target is a candidate for public office, and this guy is also currently a member of the House. http://uscode.house.gov/download/pls/18C41.txt Bye bye Carl!
Karl Rove needs to get over himself. Todd Akin apologized. Most Missourians have forgiven him his somewhat odd theory which though odd was provided with the best intent which was to counter the stupid canard that rape and incest some how validate abortion. Rape pregnacies are rare in context of all pregancies and abortions related to rape and incest are also rare at 1.5% of all abortions according to liberal Guttmacher Institute but that aside we don’t need to argue these points again.
The point is that Todd Akin is still in the race and he has recovered a lot of ground. Two polls have show he has reovered and is either tied or leading Claire McCaskill. I gave Todd a donation yesterday and plan to continue. We can and should win this seat and it is most certainly extremely winnable far more so than the CT seat or other long shots.
It is very important that we do everything we can to win this seat because if we don’t this kind of behavior of throwing conservatives under the bus and protecting Rhinos no matter what they do or say will become the norm.
My first reaction to the Akin incident was, oh crap, let’s get rid of him, the more the GOPe comes out against him, the more I want him to stay and win, do you realize the how fun it would be to see this guy in the Senate taking on all the Rinos there??? Might even send him some cash.....
At this point, I support Akin just because Karl Rove hates him.
Good way to take the positive Rubio and Romney speeches from last night and focus back on Akin. Rove you fat effing dummy.
If Rove had gone after the ‘Rats attacking his boss with 1/1000th of the gusto that he attacks conservatives with, W’s legacy would be a lot different. Rove is an idotic and nutless turd.
gimmee that wah-wah, karl
Rove, you magnificent moron.
Nice try, Yahoo to keep the Palin is crazy meme up.
Problem is, she has much more experience in governing than McLame, Bidencretin, or the Obamadork.
And, I betcha that she’d do much better in one of my classes (that’s in real classes in math/EE/physics) than those other three.
Perhaps we could try it sometimes. Be prepared to admit that the Obamadork really is a vapid, stupid, lying piece of mental nothingness.
Akin is now due an apology from Rove.
Akin is now due an apology from Rove.
I know, right? Go away. You’re not interesting anymore.
I’m kind of sick of seeing Rove’s face on TV every day. He has nothing new to offer. Out with the old - in with the new.
George Bush was destroyed by their plan not to respond to anything.
It was the stupidest political move of any president ever. I assume Rove was the engineer of that.
http://uscode.house.gov/download/pls/18C41.txt ~ that particular piece of news says it’s a felony ~ Akin is still a member of the House.
That wouldn’t necessarily stop Akin. A dead guy won that seat once before.
The liberal RNC and the Romney campaign should now dump Rove for intimating that Akin should be murdered and that he could be the one to do it. I think this is at least as big a gaffe as Akin’s.
Hey—I’ve got a couple of bucks to put toward taking down Rove.
(Sauce for the goose, and all that.)
I read this news earlier today.
I immediately sent a donation to Todd Akin as my answer to Karl Rove.
I urge all conservatives to go to Akin.org and contribute to his campaign. We must stand up to the RINO’s.
Rove is Evil. He wants Akin gone because Akin is not gonna play Rhino.
Well get used to them they’re all Romney and Ryan’s foreign policy advisers.
The Bush family is “progressive”.
Rove is tightly entwined with the Bush family.
Progressives like to murder their opponents, either singly, or by the millions, as circumstances deem appropriate.
I would much have preferred Akin to quit, but he had a right to stay. Continuing to pile on is a stupid strategy. It was thinking like this that cost the Republicans Ted Stevens seat in Alaska after he was wrongly convicted (later overturned) just prior to the election.
I would contribute to Akin and will after Sept. 25, but I am afraid he will yet yield to the liberals and exit the race.
Thanks for this news!
What is rhyno?
Democrats are a mite hypocrisy bound about this aren’t they? Surely Akin’s opponent has said a stupid thing or two?
The GOP is far more sensitive to scandal than the Rats are.
It ain’t easy being clean (or trying to be).
That said, I believe Akin did confess that he had been mistaken? If sincere, that ought to be the end of the brouhaha.
Little furry one, R.I.N.O. means Republican In Name Only. One who claims allegiance to the party but opposes or makes light of one or more of the party’s significant traditional platform planks.
Sometimes that is put as Rhino.
Don’t let a Rhino stomp on you. You’ll be a kitten pancake.
