Following a disappointing loss in his state’s U.S. Senate race to incumbent Claire McCaskill, Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) told reporters Wednesday that he spent all of last night racking his brain and trying to figure out what had gone wrong with his campaign. “I don’t know what happened. I was polling really well until late August, but then it all just kind of unraveled,” said Akin, adding that he was “still piecing together” the causes of his collapse. “I just keep replaying those weeks and months over and over in my head, searching for something, anything, that I could have said or done differently, and absolutely nothing comes to mind. Maybe it was my views on tax reform that did me in. I don’t know.”

  1. “Maybe it was my views on tax reform that did me in.”

    Ha ha ha,
    hee hee hee,
    the truth is clear,

  2. Republicans usually lose when they actually say what they’re thinking.

  3. The sad thing is, I almost missed the source of that article.

    Did I just fall victim to Poe’s law?

  4. There should be a rule that if you have less intelligence than a rock, then you cannot run for public office…

  5. In the US the rule appears to be, they put you on the Science Committee.
