Or, Why You Shouldn't Be Ashamed to Be a Female Voter in Missouri.
It's become pretty clear over the past few weeks that Todd Akin hates women. Oh, he hasn't said that in so many words -- which is actually pretty surprising since he doesn't seem to care much about the possibility of offending his female constituency, or the males who support the radical notion of female equality.

Akin believes that women, particularly his female political opponents, should behave with ladylike deference during debates. Akin believes that the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which makes it easier for women to sue for equal pay, is a violation of free enterprise.
