Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin is back in the Missouri Senate race … because he never left it, son.
Having weathered the storm caused by the liberal media pretending he thinks vaginas are washing machines for rape sperm (truth: he thinks they are car washes for rape sperm), Todd Akin now has to figure out how to appeal to lady voters once again.
Condescending sexism should do the trick quite nicely!
[A] new comment isn’t likely to help his efforts to appeal to women voters: Akin noted that his opponent, Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, was more “ladylike” during the 2006 campaign.
“I think we have a very clear path to victory, and apparently Claire McCaskill thinks we do, too, because she was very aggressive at the debate, which was quite different than it was when she ran against Jim Talent,” Akin told the Kansas City Star. “She had a confidence and was much more ladylike (in 2006), but in the debate on Friday she came out swinging, and I think that’s because she feels threatened.”
If we were Claire McCaskill (or a lady), we would actually be offended more by this than by the “legitimate rape” comments. At least the legitimate rape comments made lady parts into something with superheroic, magical abilities. A vagina with the ability to stop a crime – well, part of a crime – from happening as it happens? You ladies could have gone to your OB/GYN, who would naturally be Ron Paul, and said, “Please inspect my delicate Avenger.” Do you know what we would give to pee out of Captain America???
Instead, Senator McCaskill just gets shoehorned into a hoary old sexist box that doesn’t allow her to do anything put smile politely and serve cookies as an insane man rambles in her face. The only superhero that reminds us of is Aquaman before he got the hook hand, and at that point, you’re not even really a superhero, you’re just an animal-obsessed schizophrenic who couldn’t make the Olympic swim team.
