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.

Mitch McConnell Fooled by Report in Military Version of The Onion

U.S. Senators Visit IJC

Oh my. Someone please get this to Ashley Judd. These neanderthals are totally willing to believe any crackpot or satirical story that fits their warped narrative. I'm sure McConnell thought he had found himself a hobby horse he could ride the poop out of. Via Wired.

The best parody contains elements of truth. Which might explain how the military’s answer to The Onion suckered the Senate’s Republican leader.

Meet The Duffel Blog, if you haven’t already. A must-read for national-security nerds — and anyone who enjoys humor, really — it provides pitch-perfect military parody online, such as this piece about Syria hosting Iraq War reenactors (bylined by “G-Had”) or this one about a Google Street View Prius getting blown up in Kandahar. The Duffel Blog, as dutiful readers know, is America’s oldest online source for fake military news, founded in 1797 in a moment of farsightedness. It often gives more real talk than most legit journalistic institutions, but there is no way you can confuse it with the real news.

Unless you are a senior member of the United States Senate.

On November 14, 2012, Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) wrote to Elizabeth King, the Pentagon’s congressional liaison, with a an unusually credulous query. “I am writing on behalf of a constituent who has contacted me regarding Guantanamo Bay prisoners receiving Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits,” McConnell wrote in a letter acquired by Danger Room. “I would appreciate your review and response to my constituent’s concerns.”

Um, Guantanamo detainees getting GI Bill benefits? Yes, that’s from the Duffel Blog, as McConnell’s constituent clearly states, complete with the reference URL. Said constituent even notes that he or she can’t find any information about the alleged government payouts to suspected insurgents and terrorists.
