Todd Akin to appear on Piers Morgan’s show tonight, or maybe not; Update: Not

posted at 8:37 pm on August 20, 2012 by Allahpundit

9 p.m. ET on CNN — if it happens. As I write this, Morgan’s show says he’s booked:

Dana Loesch says he’s not:

Can’t wait for the backstory on the mixed signals. Presumably he was booked at some point and then, after he flailed for 10 minutes on Hannity’s show, his advisors figured out that sending him onto a set with someone who’s openly hostile wouldn’t be smart. Or maybe he made a decision after he was booked to drop out and will be announcing that soon instead? In that case, er, why’s he buying up online ads vowing that he won’t quit? Strange things afoot tonight, no matter what happens on CNN at 9. Here’s your thread for reaction.

While we wait, via Mediaite, here’s Reince Priebus shoving Akin towards the exit with both hands, to the point where he declares flatly that he’d rather not see him show up at the convention. The latest name being kicked around as a possible replacement: Jo Ann Emerson, who’s been elected comfortably to the House by southeastern Missouri for the past 16 years.

Update: Am hearing on Twitter that Morgan’s show opened with a shot of an empty chair and that he called Akin a “gutless little twerp” for canceling. Like I say, can’t wait for the backstory.

The latest name being kicked around as a possible replacement: Jo Ann Emerson, who’s been elected comfortably to the House by southeastern Missouri for the past 16 years.

As well as being a dyed-in-the-wool shill for organized labor. The party committee dropping her, Scozzafava-like, into the race is going to irritate a lot of people unnecessarily.

He must be a not so closet Muslim with his “Legitimate Rape”.

VorDaj on August 20, 2012 at 8:45 PM

This is like watching a car wreck in slow motion. It’s humiliating to the Republicans. What he said was bad enough but the way he has handled the fallout from this demonstrates that he has no business holding public office.

joekenha on August 20, 2012 at 8:45 PM

The worst part of this story isn’t Akin’s actual comments or the sh*tfest that ensued; its the fact they are almost certainly going to replace him with some god awful Establishment d*ckhole.

JamesSeanMcKeane on August 20, 2012 at 8:45 PM

This circus continues…

idesign on August 20, 2012 at 8:45 PM

Please, please drop out, Akin.

Book on August 20, 2012 at 8:45 PM

The fact that this guy is insisting on staying in the race today is evidence that his boneheaded remarks are not his only stupidity.

If he cared about the people of his state, or the country overall, he would at least make a show of giving serious thought to staying or going. That he immediately insisted he would stay betrays his selfishness.

I’m sure he doesn’t want to resign, but he brought this entirely upon himself. And who wants to continue to deal with the inevitable idiocies that will flow from this guy in the future?

Mayday on August 20, 2012 at 8:46 PM

G-d is calling Akin to go on a mission to Sudan to teach the men there the finer points of Legitimate Rape.

bayview on August 20, 2012 at 8:47 PM

I live in Missouri. As dumb as Akin’s comment was I’d rather him stay in than have Jo-Anne Emerson on the ballot. Emerson is a huge RINO. Heritage and club for growth has Emerson at under 50% conservative vote ratio. Emerson’s husband is a Democrat, Emerson has union ties. Emerson even made a small donation to Debbie-Waserman Schultz.

I’ll vote third party before I vote for Emerson!

JB-STLMO on August 20, 2012 at 8:47 PM

Yes, if he believes he’s on a mission from God.

Since we’re all still on this subject. And since Obama just came out and said something like “rape is rape.” Wondering if Obama will take any questions about how women are treated under Sharia?

Obama adviser says Sharia law misunderstood. Women love sharia law 2009

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/barackobama/6274387/Obama-adviser-says-Sharia-Law-is-misunderstood.html
Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, said Miss Mogahed was “downplaying” Sharia Law. …She cited the example of Muzzammil Hassan, a Buffalo man who ran a cable channel aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes and was charged earlier this year with beheading his wife after she filed for divorce.

Sharia (Islamic) Law in New Jersey Court: Muslim husband rapes, beats, sexually abuses wife, judge sees no sexual assault because Islam forbids wives to refuse sex

President Obama chose Harold Koh as the legal adviser for the State Department. Harold Koh says that there’s nothing wrong with Sharia law. The NY Post reported that:

JUDGES should interpret the Constitution according to other nations’ legal “norms.” Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts.

I see two problems with Jo Ann Emerson: she’s a weak fundraiser who may lack the skills to build up a statewide campaign in 2 months and she might not give up her seniority in the Appropriations Committee. If she wants it and there’s money to fund her, she’d be a good pick.

I think Ann Wagner or Jim Talent should be the top options at this point (assuming Danforth isn’t interested at all). I also like Tom Schweich.

This Republican running as independent is going to win the Missouri Senate seat.

She’s been a tool for Unions and Trial Lawyers for her political career (the reason she’s hated by many MO conservatives).

Boom. Problem solved.

Midwestprincesse on August 20, 2012 at 8:54 PM

Steelman was my choice between herself, Akin and John Brunner. However, there are two complications with her: First, it’s my understanding she opposes tort reform. Second, the Missouri GOP brass has never been that cozy with her and her “mama grizzliness,” choosing former Rep. Kenny Hulshof over her when both ran for governor (Hulshof beat Steelman, then himself got beaten handily by Jay Nixon in the general election).

We’ve got to hope Akin and the Missouri Republican Party will each do the right thing. Namely, Akin has to pack it in, and the Missouri GOP should choose either Steelman or Ann Wagner, avoiding RINO John Danforth like the plague. Sorry, joana. He’s 76, I wouldn’t trust him to repeal Obamacare, and he’d generally be the Frank Lautenberg of Missouri. Ditto other RINOs like Jo Ann Emerson.

Sir Rants-A-Lot on August 20, 2012 at 9:07 PM

…and they chose Akin. Heh.

JamesSeanMcKeane on August 20, 2012 at 9:01 PM

Exactly my point – don’t you see how bad she has to be? Plus, I suspect that Steelman would be obliterated in a run-off versus either Akin or Brunner. Her record on unions and trial lawyers is just too difficult to swallow for many MO conservatives. I mean, it’s 2 statewide primaries in a row, against very weak opponents, where she’s destroyed.

I still cant’ see the rationale for picking such a weak candidate. I mean, people have been whining for months about how weak our field in this race was (as Akin winning the primary proves), now we’re going to pick the biggest loser from a weak field? Doesn’t compute.

joana on August 20, 2012 at 9:07 PM

You have got to be kidding me. Seriously?

Yeah, it’s all meaningless now. This whole campaign has been decided by some guy giving an interview about abortion. Forget the last 4 years, all the unemployment, the assaults on our liberty, our freedoms, businesses, the economy, creeping Sharia and Fascism… America has decided Obama is now god again and Romney and Ryan are losers because this no name guy, that half the country never heard of until a day ago, said something stupid about rape and pregnancy during an interview.

I blame his wife.

It just gets stupider and stupider. He is an ego maniac. To even CONSIDER Piers Morgan proves he is unfit.

What planet are you living on? Seriously? Our candidate is MITT ROMNEY. The Mitt Romney who couldn’t beat serial philanderer and murderer EVEN when he tried to outflank him on the left. The same MITT ROMNEY who’s response to Joe Soptic’s ad was that his wife would have been covered under Romneycare.

He’s just such a god awful politician that it is totally beyond me why anyone would spare the time to defend him.

A lot of people were watching Morgan’s show to see he’d show up.

And by a lot, I mean 13.
