Todd Akin is an idiot
But he’s our idiot. <grumble-grumble>
During the primary, McCaskill polled behind a potted plant. Now Akin has to prove he’s at least as valuable as a potted plant (some question there). He’s supposed to be buying air time so he can give his, “I’m not a witch.” speech*. With everyone expecting that, what I would recommend he do (besides hitting himself in the head with a hammer) is go on the offensive with McCaskill’s record of betraying her constituents to curry favor with her political overlords in her party. He won’t because he’s an idiot. But that’s what he should do.
