And the crazy lives on in pinball form.
Todd Akin may someday hope to make a comeback, but in the meantime, his infamous “legitimate rape” remark is the gift that keeps on giving. That is, the failed Senate candidate from Missouri continues to inspire some legitimate art. First, we had the Akin-themed Law & Order SVU episode. And now, ladies and gentlemen, we present to you the Todd Akin pinball game.
The Missouri congressman’s campaign-destroying gaffe has inspired a French artist — like, actually based in France! — to create a pinball game that illustrates the “female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down” part of Akin’s quote last summer.
This is where I do the circles by my ear and wink. Oy. Via.
Ooooh, aaaaah. This would be such a gift except for the fact that she’s probably got a Fox “consultant” contract already in her back pocket.
The latest survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling showed Democratic hotel magnate Jim Graves edging Bachmann among voters in Minnesota’ Sixth Congressional District 47 percent to 45 percent. Graves announced recently that he will challenge Bachmann once again next year after falling to the tea party champion in a close race last year.
Facing a campaign finance investigation, Bachmann has been pegged as one of the leading Democratic targets in 2014. The poll, which was reported on by Politico, was conducted May 15 using automated phone interviews with 500 voters. It has a margin of error of 4.4 percentage points.
Why is CNN giving this whackjob a platform? Ugh. Via.
