Update: Senator Jim DeMint comes out in support of Akin, here. Hat tip: Judy
Remember I told you that Karl and the establishment boys said they needed to “get (Republican)Todd Akin” for his off-the-cuff remark about rape way back when on September 3rd (an eternity ago it seems). They tried to drive him from the race.
I’m a couple of days late with this story which I haven’t seen anywhere except at Gateway Pundit—Newt Gingrich is defying the boys and campaigning for Akin!
Newt is the first big national candidate to come in and campaign for Todd Akin. He described the enormous gap between the two candidates:
“I would simply say to anybody who has any confusion – Six seconds of Todd Akin Saying something dumb doesn’t offset six years of McCaskill voting destructively… You know she’s going to smear him because a straight up honest fight over her voting record she’s just going to get wiped out. “
Ah, I’m not wild about Gingrich, but in these times it does make one long for a bulldog.
