Akin's Latest "Gaffes" Alienate Grammar Nazis

Posted By on Tue, Aug 21, 2012 at 5:03 PM

Todd Akin is having a rough day. It doesn't help that his staff made a dumb typo on his donations page, as the entire world accuses him of being a legitimate idiot for his now infamous disregard of basic book learnin'. 

"Tell McCaskill that Your Standing With Todd Akin!" reads the banner across the top of his donations page.

You might also notice the huge fetus-zilla to the right of the page. Don't sneer: that could be your rapist's baby. 

But it's that typo that really has some tweeps worked up:

Without the grammar Nazi vote, Akin may just be down to the White Power kind in this race. 


Update: Akin's web people have fixed the typo and taken down the fetus-zilla.
