Say what you will about Todd Akin, but the man is not a quitter.

Infamous for wrecking his Senate campaign in 2012 -- when his brain failed to shut down that whole thing his mouth was saying about rape -- Missouri's prodigal son came out swinging this month with a national book tour to promote Firing Back: Taking on the Party Bosses and Media Elite to Protect Our Faith.
The tour showed Akin in vintage form: He blamed the media and Republican leadership for his campaign loss, compared himself to Joseph McCarthy and reneged on his apologies for the "legitimate rape" comments that got him in trouble in the first place. Also, he believes that abortion "easily trumps slavery as the greatest moral evil in American history." Yup, that sounds like the Akin we know.
