In the latest stop in his self-pitying “comeback” tour, former Republican congressman Todd Akin said that another run for office wasn’t off the table. Speaking last week with Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily, which is publishing his new book, Akin once again framed the controversy over his “legitimate rape” remarks as part of a battle between spiritual good and evil, insisting that God was on his side. He told Farah that he hasn’t dismissed the idea of running for office again because he wants to “tell the truth” and “stand up to evil.... MORE >

Former congressman and failed U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin said yesterday that he believes God shielded him against liberal attempts to “make fun” of him during the fallout of remarks he made about women’s bodies and “legitimate rape.” In an interview with Janet Mefferd, Akin once again suggested that his comments about “legitimate rape” were part of a fight against spiritual evil. “It was just a very, very intense time, yet in all of those things, I felt the Lord’s protection and His comfort, and that’s something that people who...

In the second part of his sad, self-pitying interview with WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah last week, Todd Akin argued that the September 11, 2001 attacks shocked liberals into “silence,” arguing that liberals don’t believe “there are really bad people in this world” and “don’t think we need any defense in America.” While he spent most of the interview criticizing Hillary Clinton for representing an accused rapist while working as a defense attorney for a legal aid group in Arkansas — because apparently individuals suspected of...

Todd Akin took his increasingly desperate and unintentionally comical persecution tour today to WorldNetDaily, the conservative outlet which is publishing his new book. Sitting down with WND editor Joseph Farah, Akin said he lost his race for the U.S. Senate as the result of an Alinsky-inspired conspiracy to destroy him — and America — by making fun of him. “Going all the way back to the old Saul Alinsky and his tactics, instead of dealing with the thought or the issue or the question at hand, instead what you do is you try to destroy their character, you make fun of them,...

Yesterday, Todd Akin insisted that he is not into trying to play the victim…he just wants to make it clear that the “jerks” in the media “assassinated” him during his campaign for the U.S. Senate. Akin, who has been promoting his new book by explaining that he was the target of an evil conspiracy to censor and destroy him because of his patriotic and Christian values, appeared on Tuesday’s “The Steve Deace Show” to retell the tale. Seeing that Akin has been trotting out the usual right-wing talking points about persecution from the media and... MORE >

Former congressman Todd Akin said last week that the firestorm over his comments about how women’s bodies “shut down” pregnancies in cases of “legitimate rape” was all part of a spiritual war between good and evil, and obviously, Akin was on the side of good. Even though Akin ran a television ad during his unsuccessful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign apologizing for his remarks, the Missouri Republican now insists that he always believed in what he said regarding “legitimate rape” and believes that the media, Democrats and Republicans such as Mitt Romney...

Todd Akin Blames His Loss On Establishment GOP's 'Censorship Of The Truth' And 'Anti-American Agenda'

Former Missouri Rep. Todd Akin continues his comeback tour today with an interview with the Daily Caller, in which he blames his 2012 Senate loss on “the direct attacks of the Republican Party leadership on our campaign,” which he says were part of the party establishment’s effort to push an “anti-American agenda.” Akin claims his own party sunk his campaign with “censorship of the truth” because they were afraid of the “elite liberal media.” Akin, for his part, was apparently merely trying to generate “patriotism in the hearts of...

Former Rep. Todd Akin keeps insisting that he was unfairly persecuted for his infamous “legitimate rape” remarks, which helped to cost him the 2012 U.S. Senate race in Missouri. Akin apologized for the remarks when they became a liability to his campaign, but recently published a book rescinding his apology. Now, in a column today for WorldNetDaily, the far-right website publishing his new book, Akin claims that Politico reporters Anna Palmer and Tarini Parti “censored” his book by leaving out of their review his allegation that Bill Clinton is “a credibly...
