Duggar family to stump for Todd Akin
Still trailing Sen. Claire McCaskill in polls, embattled GOP Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin is desperately trying to recapture Republican support. After a lengthy public shaming by Republican PACs and politicians, Akin has recently earned support from Mike Huckabee and secured endorsements from Missouri Republican icon Kit Bond and former Missouri Sen. Jim Talent. But retired politicians are nothing compared with the endorsement Akin is going to uncork today.
Michelle Duggar, prodigious baby factory and star of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, will speak at a luncheon in Springfield on Monday. Duggar (who also blogs for TLC's website) will speak with Huckabee's wife, Janet, to "Women Standing with Todd Akin," a group the campaign set up following Akin's legitimate-rape comments.

4. Can you imagine a Quiverfull of Akins?
Is it any surprise that Duggar would support Akin? She likewise supports her husband, who is head of the household, and Jesus, the head of her church.
Or, she had better. Or else, I imagine.
This is actually very sad.
