OK folks - you knew this was coming - I ordered some extra air scrubbers for this one, and pressed every commenter into service hooking them up.

Ms. A took one look at the profusion of new ducts coming out of the iso chamber, muttered something about how this was going to affect her insurance premiums, and hastily departed.

First, let's take the wayback machine to a kinder and gentler time, when teabaggers were king, and women made sammiches:

    CBS News Tea Party-backed Rep. Akin wins Missouri GOP Senate primary to take on McCaskill

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Rep. Todd Akin, who played up his tea party credentials and conservative appeal, broke out from a three-way Missouri Republican primary on Tuesday to earn the right to take on Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, setting up one of ...

    If Akin lives up to the ad that Claire was running against him, I’ll be a very happy Missourian.

    Polling has shown that Claire loses to Akin, as well as Steeleman and Brunner. Now we’ll find out. Akin, I thought was so far behind that he’d be in third place at the end of the night. I thought he was ‘too conservative’ so said Clair’es ad. Hope he’s as good as Claire says he is!

    Akin will do just fine. He has been around awhile and does not have a lot of dirt or garbage that can be thrown at him. I liked him the best of the three candidates. He is a good choice to take on Claire. I would have been happy to vote for either of the other two as well. It was refreshing to have some decent choices for once.

    He has never shied away from being a Godly conservative.

Unintentional irony alert!

They are all good candidates imo.

Once upon a time, before the Marxists captured the jackass party and drove nearly all the RINO inclined politicians over to the GOP, elections were about who could do the best job among a slate of decent candidates. They weren't about the lesser of two evils.

Congratulations to the Missouri GOP for getting back to where the entire country should be.

    I understand why all the rinos are sissies now. The single white women base hates the tea party. It makes it difficult to win when they can’t even get a portion of their vote.

You ain't seen nothin' yet.

Oh my: Missouri GOP Senate nominee says victims of ‘legitimate rape’ don’t get pregnant

    “Legitimate rape” became a Twitter trending topic in the U.S. this afternoon after liberal blog Talking Points Memo posted a video of Rep. Todd Akin claiming that victims of “legitimate rape” are unlikely to become pregnant.

Don't ask, don't tell?
Watch them circle the drain here. Schadenfreude galore!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Nutpicking is so much fun!  Thank you for going there so I don't have to.

    Most of them cling to enough slivers of sanity to recognize that Akin is a fiasco and must go to salvage their dimming hopes of taking the Senate.

    And then there are the real hard-core nut cases like this one:

    I don’t know what legitimate rape is, and neither do you, but I know gang rape when I see it. That is what Freeperdom, the GOP-E and even the Tea Party engage in when one of our own makes an incoherent, marble mouthed statement of no substance.

    Armchair patriots wonder why conservatives are reluctant to enter the national fray and fight. The answer is on display when another conservative is tossed to the Marxist wolves for . . . what? This silly Akin imbroglio is part and parcel of what we allowed to happen to other good guys who stubbed their rhetorical toes in an unguarded moment. Did it occur to any of the Freeper Ninjas that Zero’s pathetic weakness was on display yesterday when he held his first formatted, scripted presser in months to take a question about Akin? Do our cause some good, and line up behind Hussein for perverted fun, not Akin.

    The same Freepers wailing on Akin to get lost are among the first to complain about our cojone-less Speaker of the House. Why would anyone stand and fight the big battles when he looks around to find his soldiers running away from skirmishes?

    Finally, consider the upcoming, breathtaking hypocrisy that will occur in a couple weeks at the rat national convention. The very media in high dudgeon over a nonsensical term from a conservative, will embrace the keynote speaker, the impeached and unindicted rapist BJ Clinton.

    Join the gang rape if you wish. I refuse.

    Followed by responses like these to the (relatively) rational FReepes who tried to talk some sense into him:
    You’re a quisling.
    Boo! Don’t bump your head while running for cover.
    I bet you think Dan Cathy should apologize to the fags. Get out of the fetal position. It has affected your brain.

    On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.

    they'll still vote for him, the prize is an end to a woman's right to choose parenthood or not, if the vehicle is dinged up they'll still go for the ride.

    You can tell by the fact that they're just fine with Mitt putting his dog on the roof.

    They're just fine with the fact that the "old Mitt" supported Roe V. Wade.

    it's not about the best candidate anymore, it's about getting their way.

    We've been spelling it wrong all these years. It's actually: PRO-GOP-ANDA
