Akin wants back into politics and is trying to repair his reputation. He was criticizing Clinton a few weeks ago for having defended a rapist - one who committed 'legitimate rape' I assume. He's written this book. He really thinks he has a chance on running again for something and is trying to get back in the spotlight. He's just fooling himself.
“He’s just fooling himself..”
Yeah, I don’t think he can get himself appointed dog catcher, let alone anything higher now. Anyone who could get Claire McCaskill elected again is not redeemable.
