Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Oh, my Akin head!

Sorry for getting out of my box – but this one couldn’t wait for a week.

OK folks – you knew this was coming – I ordered some extra air scrubbers for this one, and pressed every commenter into service hooking them up.

Ms. A took one look at the profusion of new ducts coming out of the iso chamber, muttered something about how this was going to affect her insurance premiums, and hastily departed.

First, let’s take the wayback machine to a kinder and gentler time, when teabaggers were king, and women made sammiches:

CBS News Tea Party-backed Rep. Akin wins Missouri GOP Senate primary to take on McCaskill

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Rep. Todd Akin, who played up his tea party credentials and conservative appeal, broke out from a three-way Missouri Republican primary on Tuesday to earn the right to take on Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, setting up one of …

If Akin lives up to the ad that Claire was running against him, I’ll be a very happy Missourian.

Polling has shown that Claire loses to Akin, as well as Steeleman and Brunner. Now we’ll find out. Akin, I thought was so far behind that he’d be in third place at the end of the night. I thought he was ‘too conservative’ so said Clair’es ad. Hope he’s as good as Claire says he is!

Akin will do just fine. He has been around awhile and does not have a lot of dirt or garbage that can be thrown at him. I liked him the best of the three candidates.

He has never shied away from being a Godly conservative.

Unintentional irony alert!

He would make a great senator.
Heard McCaskill bashing him this morning as she heads out to Kansas City to campaign.

They are all good candidates imo.

Once upon a time, before the Marxists captured the jackass party and drove nearly all the RINO inclined politicians over to the GOP, elections were about who could do the best job among a slate of decent candidates. They weren’t about the lesser of two evils.

Congratulations to the Missouri GOP for getting back to where the entire country should be.

I understand why all the rinos are sissies now.The single white women base hates the tea party. It makes it difficult to win when they can’t even get a portion of their vote.

You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
My my – such a tabagger outpouring of love for the home-schooling McCaskill-killer.

“Legitimate rape” became a Twitter trending topic in the U.S. this afternoon after liberal blog Talking Points Memo posted a video of Rep. Todd Akin claiming that victims of “legitimate rape” are unlikely to become pregnant.
