Be still, our Akin-breakin' heart.
The Akin campaign seemingly doubled-down on that "Claire McCaskill is a dog" thing when Akin's spokesperson sent out the following tweet: "If Claire McCaskill were a dog, she'd be a 'Bullshitsu.'"
Which is like, come on, Akin campaign. You know what comes next.
As we wrote yesterday, the initial comment needn't have gotten folks so hot under the collar. Mostly it was kind of rambly and made no sense:
She goes to Washington, D.C., it's a little bit like one of those dogs, 'fetch,' she goes to Washington, D.C., and get 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.
