You just have to see this ad to believe it. It is.... "eviscerating" as we say around here:
Todd Akin in his own words...
On March 18th, 2011, Todd Akin said he didn't like Social Security.
On December 3rd, 2011, Todd Akin said Medicare was unconstitutional.
On March 16th, Akin said he wants to abolish the minimum wage.
On April 21st, he said he would eliminate student loans.
And on August 19th, Todd Akin said only some rapes are "legitimate".
What will he say next?
That burns! Whoever did this ad was a genius.
Can we get an ad like that for Romney too?
2:15 PM PT: As people have asked... yes this is a brand new ad.
Release JUST AFTER Akin's press conference confirming that he's staying in the race.
2:18 PM PT: Correction... released last night according to TPM:
Incumbent Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill posted a hard-hitting TV ad featuring Akin's "legitimate rape" comments to her campaign website Tuesday. The McCaskill campaign confirmed to TPM that the ad began airing statewide Monday night. Immediately following Akin's press conference, liberal super PAC American Bridge released a video and memo documenting the "top ten crazy Akin moments."
