New York Times: Teaching Moment - Todd Akin Finally Learning To Watch His Mouth!!!
Days before the election, Rep. Todd Akin is dodging all questions on abortion and rape and has seemingly had a "folksy" image makeover according to this report:
Famous for Gaffes, a Candidate in Missouri Learns to Watch His Words
"But in the waning days of this tight race, which may decide which party controls the Senate, Mr. Akin is traveling the state exchanging handshakes and hugs with supporters. He appears to be unperturbed by his status as a political outcast and is hoping to show that he is not the extremist that many people believe him to be.
This is a softer and less confrontational Mr. Akin than what most of the country has seen."
It's a nice effort in a race that should have been a cakewalk if it wasn't undertaken by a candidate so unlikeable and incompetent.
