He’s an embarassment. Just go away and stay away.
“And yet, many Freepers fell for him.”
Ain’t that the truth!
I got called a RINO more times than I care to remember for speaking badly of Akin.
Coulter is a moronic dingbat that no conservative should listen to, least of all, McDaniel.
Todd the Dolt proves yet again why he was NEVER ready for prime time
Ditto here. Unfortunately, there is a segment of Freep nation that looks upon it as a badge of honor to say or do the stupidest things, as long as you are defending a certain set of principles. They also were not smart enough to figure out that Akin WAS establishment, not Tea party. He only claimed to be TP after the primary - which was the strategy put together by one of Newt's top advisors
.and as much as I supported Newt, it pains me to say this that he and his people were part of the Akin debacle.
Well I wouldn’t call her a moronic dingbat, but she is tone deaf on the issue of the GOP e versus the conservative base for sure.
He needs to vanish. The GOP needs to stop embracing stupid. That more than anything is hurting us.
Just more crap from an idiot that has been poked in the brains too much.
People begged him to step down and let someone else run for the seat, and he refused, saying he was ahead in the polls. Dimwit didn’t realize the DEMs played him big time. His ego was on display. You are right - he isn’t ready for prime time, and its unfortunate - because that seat would have been an easy pickup for Republicans.
Is calling someone a egotist a typical liberal slam of the successful business man.
YOU RIGHT .Huckabee does deserve a lot of the blame - and no, doesn’t know his limitations either. AND he’s fooled a lot of Freepers in the past too.
It’s a flexible term with multiple uses.
In this case it’s used to describe a guy who screwed up so badly there was no way to recover and win, but who chose to continue (rather than do the right thing and drop out) because he was either egotisticallt delusional and thought he could win, or egotistically self-aggrandizing and wanted the attention (even if it was negative attention) associated with being a Senate candidate to continue.
all the same ones ... the Clod Santuckbee fanbase ...
Is Clod Santuckabee related to Ned Huckatorum?
What Akin said was true, he just didn’t say it well and then apologized for saying anything..
A violent event, physical or emotional CAN cause a woman’s body to flush out and dump a potential pregnancy. It doesn’t always but it can and does happen that way. I know.
You still don’t get it —
That Missouri vote was more a vote against the strong-arming GOPe, you know the same people committing vote fraud in Mississippi, than it was a vote for Akin.
That being said I vote for his full retirement and that he stay retired.
Coming out with this book at this time shows that he is a political doofus.
Even though it was clear that he had mortally wounded himself with these dumb remarks and everybody else urged him to take this graceful exit, he refused.
The guy is a poster boy for dumbness. He probably cost the GOP not only the seat in Missouri, but those in Indiana, North Dakota and Montana as well.
Any married man knows how not to be trapped by his wife's inevitable "Honey, does this dress make me look fat?" question. Except Todd Akin.
True, and it is happening again in Mississippi.
Pretty hard to misinterpret him. He said “I’m an idiot” pretty clearly. He just didn’t say it in those words.
