Be still, our Akin-breakin' heart.

The Akin campaign seemingly doubled-down on that "Claire McCaskill is a dog" thing when Akin's spokesperson sent out the following tweet: "If Claire McCaskill were a dog, she'd be a 'Bullshitsu.'"

Which is like, come on, Akin campaign. You know what comes next.

As we wrote yesterday, the initial comment needn't have gotten folks so hot under the collar. Mostly it was kind of rambly and made no sense:

She goes to Washington, D.C., it's a little bit like one of those dogs, 'fetch,' she goes to Washington, D.C., and get all of these taxes and red tape and bureaucracy and executive orders and agencies and brings all of this stuff and dumps it on us in Missouri.

But then along comes Rick Tyler, Akin's spokesperson, to make sure the story didn't die:

We put the inevitable follow-up question to the RFT newsroom: What kind of dog is Todd Akin?

For your consideration, here are five dog breeds you'd never want to own (nor, possibly, elect to the U.S. Senate).

you can't bullshit a bullshitsu.


Admittedly Akin's comments are over-the-top, but the point he is making is dead on. McCaskill has been nothing but a big spending bureaucrat. She was always right there to raise the debt, and has never stood up to cut wasteful spending or balance the budget. See for yourself at

Akin's the pigeon in pigeon chess. You may play better chess then the pigeon, but it will knock all the pieces over. Crap on the board. And strut around as though it's victorious.

Red Setters. That walnut knob on top of their heads is their brain. That's the whole thing. And they're heads are made of wood and can and will bash into walls and doors with no apparent loss of their miniscule brain function.
