Rush was right about her husband, and it seems she’s stuck in the same “echo chamber” as him.

Since he is still running, he needs to try and get away from that idiotic statement.

The more they dig at that sore, the less likely he will win.

The GOP is no longer relevant in anything it does.

Good grief lady, your husband ain’t Jesus. Ironically, he is a trough feeder like every other elected official.

He blew his easy win with statements born in idiocy. His wife and the democrat party along with a few ignorant numbskulls
have stuck us with a loss to the even more ignorant witch.

Drop out now while you still can moron.

Would that be “legitimate” rape?

We don’t want GOP Establishment party bosses deciding who MO Senate candidate should be. If you belive in conservative principles send your donation to Todd Akin for Senator, P.O. Box 31222, St. Louis, MO 63131. If the party bosses win this one they might try it in your State next election.

Loyalty begets loyalty. The Akins owe nothing to the GOP Establishment, which made a serious mistake in not supporting a colleague who made a verbal gaffe and had apologized. The gaffe was made on Sunday followed almost immediately by an apology. On Monday, the GOP unleashed the Hammers of Hell against Akin demanding he withdraw by Tuesday, cutting off all money to him, and disinviting him from the Convention.

The GOP didn't count on Akin standing firm and refusing to get out of the race after winning a hard, tough primary. So now Romney and Ryan are running on a ticket with Akin and will be asked everytime they show up in Missouri whether they still want Akin to withdraw. And that only helps McCaskill and divides the MO GOP. The GOP is not called the Stupid Party for nothing.

Keep the money rolling in! Akin’s wife and son need to get PAID from those campaign coffers?

Who needs to pay for advertisements - paying your family to run your campaign is just good sense!/s

I bet the Akin campaign won't miss paying the family payroll - they may run short on things important to the actual campaign (like advertisements) but remember “it isn't about me!” Akin insists - it is also obviously about his family! They need to keep getting PAID!

Well, we now know at least one of the sources of his delusions about victory. This man will not be the next United States Senator from Missouri.

Yeah, even the dunderhead, George “Macacca” Allen had the chutzpah to call for Akin’s withdrawal the day after the gaffe.

She says small donations — and God’s will — will help her husband win

Yes, because God wants Todd to lose by double-digits to Witch McCaskill. These people are beyond delusional.

Yes. Out of experience from 2006. Allen blew his reelection that year because of "Macaca." So what's your point?

When people were talking about trying get Akin to step aside after his original comments regarding rape, it was implied that this would be nearly impossible because of his wife’s and son’s involvement in the campaign. It is pretty clear that the wife was not going to be a voice of reason and in fact, is likely driving the Akin bus. She sees her status as a senator’s wife fading away and is lashing out at the perceived villains. If she really wants to see who is sinking her husband’s chances, all she has to do is look in the mirror. All that is left is for the campaign manager son to make some kind of nutball comment to the press. How did McCaskill find these clowns.

Maybe, but up 'til now, we're not seeing it.
