Todd Akin Snubbed by Family Research Council
OUCH! Imagine being too Bible-humpy and snake-handly for the Family Research Council. As George Costanza would say, “That’s gotta hurt!”
Or in the words of Seth Meyers, “That’s like the president of the chess club calling YOU a nerd.”
Tony Perkins and his Family Research Council are hosting their annual Values Voter Summit this weekend. Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin had been announced as one of the attendees at this annual Spanish Inquisition re-enactment. And then suddenly, it was announced that Todd Akin would NOT be attending.
Paul Ryan, however, WILL be attending.
The rift between Todd Akin and the rest of the GOP is too phony for words. This is what happens when a political campaign is based on nothing but talking points which must be repeated word for word 24/7. Everyone must stay On Message at all times. Or Else.
The Republican Party Platform calls for a ban on all abortions — no exceptions. Most high-profile Republicans agree with the platform. And Todd Akin agrees with the platform. The only thing separating Todd Akin from the rest of the Talibangelical wing of the GOP is Akin’s “legitimate rape” comment. That’s all.
Todd Akin’s one careless comment has caused the Republican Party to drop him like a hot potato. The Republican Party Platform says “Tweedledeedumdeedah” and Todd Akin said “Tweedledeedumdeedoo.”
NO!!! Get it right, you IDIOT!!!
This is an Outrage! How DARE he say anything so shocking?!? Todd Akin went off message, and he has thereby capsized the GOP’s tightly choreographed synchronized swimming routine. He’s out!
It’ll be interesting to see what other rightwing fringe groups start shunning Todd Akin.
