And To Think, I Once Respected David Akin


Update at bottom of post.....

Who knew these cretins would go the 'Make the bastard deny it' route filled with shite when the going got tough:

"He was sunk in despair. He was desperate... he called his equally depressed campaign manager and instructed him to.....accuse his high-riding opponent (the pig farmer) of having routine carnal knowledge of his barnyard sows, despite the pleas of his wife and children... His campaign manager was shocked. 'We can't say that, Lyndon,' he said. 'It's not true.' 'Of course it's not,' Johnson barked at him, 'but let's make the bastard deny it.'..."
Hunter Thompson, on Lyndon Johnson's 1948 Congressional Campaign.

And who knew that Akin, a man I once thought honourable based on direct experience, would be the hired quisling who would be fingered to start cranking the Wurlitzer.

Mein gott!

What will Kady think?

Update: Midnight Friday Apr 29th, it turns out we now know what Ms. O'Malley thinks....Or....At least....Asks.

Watch tomorrow morning for Toronto Star -- Canada's largest newspaper -- to endorse Jack Layton and the New Democrats.

The only whore in this story is Akin.

"foxNoise North" with their initial "fair and balanced" reporting, eh, RossK? Somehow we're not surprised.

Following that "direct experience" link brought back fond memories of the Laughing Bean. Time for a replay with GAB after Monday's vote ? ? ? ?
