Scenes From the Todd Akin Campaign Watch Party
"Republican women are not single-issue voters," said Kim Benz, their leader. "We're concerned about the economy."
"Republican women get a bad rap," adds Brandy Pedersen. "We care about everything."
"Everything male voters care about," concludes Becky Danidger.
Republican women care about the issues, but hot chicks still dig Paul Ryan.
"How to stretch a dime," says Benz.
"That's something every wife and mother needs to know how to do," Pedersen comments.
"And single women, too!" Danidger protests.
Pedersen nods. "Single women, too."
A few feet away, Bernice Larson gets slightly lachrymose when she talked about her candidate.
"I'm for Todd Akin because he's pro-life. He has the same moral system I do. He loves Jesus. I'm impressed because he does this not for fame or money but because he believes it's something God wants him to do. He wants to serve his country."
She wipes her eyes and turns back to the big screen broadcasting Fox News' national coverage.
The first speech of the night comes from Linda Becker, leader of Missouri Women Stand for Todd Akin.
"What an amazing ride this election cycle has been!" she marvels. "Ladies, I'm glad you survived the war on women."
