It looks like Sarah Palin isn't the only one desperate to get another Republican into the Missouri Senate race after Todd Akin has refused to step down. From this Wednesday evening's Hannity on Fox, Ann Coulter lashed out at Akin, calling him a "selfish swine" who "is going to hurt the Republican party" and suggested that someone needs to start a write-in campaign to get another name on the ticket.
These Republicans really get nasty when things don't go their way. Hannity and Coulter proceeded for the rest of the segment to play a major game of false equivalencies and projection and started carping about that evil non-existent "liberal media" giving President Obama, Bill Maher, and Joe Biden a pass. And they took turns bashing Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy and Anthony Weiner as part of the Democrats' "war on women," because we all know anything they've done in their personal lives, no matter how long ago, is exactly the same as the House Republicans passing hundreds of bills that go after women's reproductive rights, birth control, medical coverage and health care.
Of course we all know what Akin is really guilty of, which is allowing the general public to get a full view of the fact that what used to be considered extremists are now the "mainstream" of the Republican Party. They've been taken over by the TeaBirchers and have been happy to have their votes, but don't care so much for any sunshine on their views being allowed.
