Claire McCaskill: '[Todd Akin] Makes Michele Bachmann Look Like A Hippie'


Todd Akin's comments that Democrat Claire McCaskill wasn't behaving "ladylike" drew some reaction on Morning Joe. In particular, Mika Brezinski seemed to take personal offense, calling such attacks "unmanly". Responding to a question by Dee Dee Myers that Akin wants to go backwards in time, that he acts like McCaskill should defer to him, Claire McCaskill didn't disagree, saying "This is somebody who kind of makes Michele Bachmann look like a hippie."
