Missouri Senate Debate - McCaskill vs. Akin (VIDEO)

Friday, September 21, 2012

McCaskill & Akin had their first debate today.

Ed Shultz discussed it on his show, and there is an additional 4-minute clip from TPM here in which the moderator asks Akin about the 'legitimate rape' controversy.

1. Greece's debt is not due to high taxation but widespread tax avoidance. Akin doesn't know shit about


Greece or anything else for that matter. least of all what's going on in a woman's uterus

2. He also totally ignored the question

Rather than giving a proper answer as to why he said what he did, he went into a tirade about the GOP's positions on finance, which as you said are not exactly well-informed.

4. Republicans don't even acknowledge a question let alone answer one. They just rattle off talking

points without listening to the question.

They're like Pentecostal snake handlers speaking in tongues.

3. Who the fuck is this 3rd boozo in the debate

All he's doing is being a spoiler sounds like he has the same exact views as the Senator
