Todd Akin deserves as much sympathy as Joe McCarthy

By Richard K. Barry

You remember Todd Akin. Think hard. He was the 2012 Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Missouri who said that women who were victims of "legitimate rape" could not get pregnant because, you know, the "female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

Nearly everyone with an opinion, on both sides of the aisle, distanced themselves from the jackass and he went down to well-deserved defeat. 

He's baaaack!

In the latest he argues that what was done to him was exactly what they did to poor old "Tail Gunner Joe McCarthy" who, Akin says, was "assassinated by the media."

You've got to give Akin credit. Who else would attempt to defend himself by association with one the most despicable monsters in the history of American politics?

Not only is Akin a creep, but he continually shows himself to be an irredeemably stupid creep.

Sure hope the GOP has a few more of these types kicking around for future elections.
