Todd Akin, Prominent With Fetus

Embattled Missouri Rep. Todd Akin is still standing, this time with a fetus.

Akin’s Senate campaign website asks that people sign a petition supporting him during this time when most establishment Republicans have turned against him. Also on the page is his opponent for the Missouri Senate seat — and probably his biggest supporter today — Sen. Claire McCaskill (D).

In what is one of the more interesting pleas for support, the website begs: “Tell McCaskill That Your Standing With Todd Akin”

Quick edit: Team Akin, the word you mean to use isn’t “your,” which is a possessive pronoun. It is “you’re,” the contraction of “you are.”

“I made a mistake,” he continues. “I used the wrong words in the wrong way.”

Thankfully, this statement can apply both to his “legitimate rape” comments and now his grammar.
