Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) seems incapable of not making offensive comments about women. First he said that "legitimate rape" victims rarely get pregnant. Then he said that his opponent, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), debated him in an aggressive manner that was not "ladylike." At a Saturday evening fundraiser, Akin compared McCaskill to a "dog" whose purpose is to "fetch" government programs. Listen:
AKIN: She goes to Washington, D.C., and it’s a little bit like one of those dogs, you know, ‘fetch.' She goes to Washington, D.C., and gets all of these taxes and red tape and bureaucracy and executive orders and agencies and brings all of this stuff and dumps it on us in Missouri. It seems to me that she’s got it just backwards. What we should be doing is taking the common sense we see in Missouri and taking that to Washington, D.C., and blessing them with some solutions instead of more problems.
