  •  I saw that and thought of Reagan (1+ / 0-)

    The Great Communicator (no, really, that's what the popular media called Reagan!) allegedly had this shoe box stuffed with newspaper clippings that backed up every stupid public utterance he made. Sort of like links function today on the internet.

    I saw that reference in the Akin story to some 1978 report in the Chicago Sun-Times (of uncertain provenance), and immediately thought of the Return of the Gipper. I think Akin has totally locked up the doddering old fogey vote in Missouri with this "bombshell."
