Todd Akin Chides His Opponent for Being Unladylike

Posted by on Thu, Sep 27, 2012 at 2:56 PM

Gawker found this latest quote from Todd Akin:

"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 said. "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.

Yep! Still an asshole.

She came out swinging her handbag, right?

If he had had legitimate positions, he'd have been able to shut her down.

Christ, did the republican party break this Akin dinosaur out of a time capsule or something?

Should he have said "gentlemanly"?

My dad says it's not gentlemanly for him to say such mean things about a lady.

I'm pretty certain Akin knows all about being lady like given all the time he's spent with his wife's wardrobe.

No one is asking the important question:

Was she indeed less ladylike than she was in 2006? Where are the fact-checkers?
