McCaskill 2006 on Bill Clinton: “I don’t want my daughter near him”

posted at 9:44 pm on August 23, 2012 by Allahpundit

I forgot all about this but luckily Dana Loesch didn’t. We’ve spent four days pulverizing Akin; let McCaskill and her pal Barack spend a day or two now trying to explain why a convention ostensibly devoted to the dignity of women should feature as a key speaker a guy who’d warrant a comment like this. Free advice for any reporter with the professional integrity to ask her about it: Make sure to have her clarify whether she was alluding specifically to rape, statutory or otherwise, or whether she was “merely” implying that he’d betray our feminist-icon Secretary of State by acting like a lech around a much younger woman. We need much more information on the many fascinating nuances of this “pro-woman” message. Click the image to watch.

Getting McCaskill out of the Senate is still a worthwhile endeavor. I hope the people in Missouri find a way to make it happen.

SoCons arent sincere about trying to make serious social change. They want to display their moral superiority like peacocks.

The progressives have slapped the SoCons around for decades all the while under the radar via guerilla warfare. The SoCons continue their political buffoonery .

Good. Well done Dana Loesch. McCaskill has six years worth of stupidity worth reviewing. Let’s do so and recommit ourselves to getting her brand of stupidity out of the Senate rather than navel-gazing when it comes to the stupidity on our side.

There is still no reason for abandoning victory in this race. Go with Akin, through Akin, or around Akin – I don’t care which. A party as powerful as the GOP looked last week after the Ryan pick, and with the fundraising haul to prove it, has no excuse for being unable to find a path to victory in an R+4 state against someone as incompetent as Claire McCaskill.

Kit Bond, John Danforth… free Senate seat for whoever goes all in first.

Don’t think his coming out of the closet officially (who didn’t know he was gay to begin with?) has anything to do with these instances of real journalism. His coming out, however, made him bulletproof and impossible to fire, and he’s probably just effing with his employer, CNN, for being pr!cks anyway, and he knows that taking the Dems to task pisses them off big time.

Then again, now that he is bulletproof, perhaps he’s returning to his roots. He is a Vanderbilt, of course, and a very wealthy heir to one of the nation’s great capitalists, and know longer needs to prove his liberal chops anyway.

TXUS on August 23, 2012 at 10:33 PM

Dana has done a ton of work in the St. Louis area for years. The tea party here really formed quickly and I believe it matured faster than most places, and she played a big role in that. I don’t particularly like the way she has handled this, but I am sure she is stuck in a tough spot. She didn’t invest all this time to see Claire skate by, but she probably also understands all the yelling and screaming isn’t what is going to get Akin to budge.

Right he is the stubborn one.

We all agree he won the race fairly.

We all agree Missouri law says he is the nominee and his sore loser opponents can not run in this election.

We all agree he retracted the statement.

We also all agree that no one in history has ever been asked to withdraw over a misstatement retracted the very next day.

Yet this insistence that he be the very first person in America to withdraw from a race he won solely because he said something stupid even though he has done every thing possible to apologise and ask forgiveness.

Sorry. I do not support Akin but I do support firmly playing the game by the rules set before the election. So does he. By those rules no one has any right to ask him to resign for his free speech. The voters already took his stupid opinions on abortion into account when they nominated him.

Look I think the Republican hysteria about Akin isn’t helping and I certainly give him the benefit of the doubt on his gaffe/statement. That being said, he isn’t going to win. He doesn’t have to bow out but it would have been for the good of the party.

Furthermore he is an idiot. ANY pro-lifer especially one in politics for a couple of years should have been prepared for that question. I am a big one for not letting the media write the narrative, but you certainly don’t give the media a gift. The fact is Republicans don’t get a fair chance so we have to be more savvy than the Dem candidate. Is it fair? Nope, but it is reality.

Let’s be clear…there are no rules being broken by asking the guy to leave.

By those rules no one has any right to ask him to resign for his free speech.

This is not a First Amendment issue. He has the right to say what he wants.

He does not, however, have the right to demand to be free of any consequences from his words.

He does not have a right to party support.

He does not have a right to money from the party or other sources.

He does not have a right to demand that the legions of grassroots volunteers needed to win work phone banks, knock on doors, post signs, or do anything else for him.

He does not have the right to demand that everyone join in his paranoid fantasies about “party bosses,” “the liberal elite,” and the “msm,” who are all part of a conspiracy, along with the Tea Party Express, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, et al, to force him from the race.

He does not have the right to demand that Republicans refrain from backing a write-in candidate.

He doesn’t have the right to demand that his party love or even want him.

He doesn’t have the right to demand that the party and other people, who are supporting Republicans this year, be damaged by his tarbaby-ness in such a critical election year.

He doesn’t have a right to demand anything from any of us.

His measure has been taken and it has been found to be wanting.

Seriously doubt that. Were that the case their attacks on Romney would be far far worse.

But they are most definitely concerned about the fact that they now are considered just spokesmen for Obama. They want to be able to influence people people this election and right now they only influence Democrats. They have to make some attempt to restore some feeling that they care about the truth. Then there is the fact that DWS is a laughing stock so she is a great target.

Wow you can read the voters minds amazing.

Maybe that is why the rules do not allow for what is attempting to be done to Akin to succeed.

Ignorant people that think they can read other peoples minds and make decisions for them. How arrogant and condescending. The voters had 12 months to make this decision.

Say he had made this exact quote earlier. It is very unlikely the press would have jumped on it. He would have retracted it the next day. No one would remember it today and he would still be the nominee. No mind reading required for that one.

This would set a very dangerous precedent. It would tell anyone running for office that one stupid statement and from now on that is it. That is an impossible standard. Why the law does not allow for this stupidity.

Just curious, what is a “thick night” anyway, and why do you stake a claim to it? Please also define “thin night” if you get a chance.

Yes you also have first amendment rights.

You have the right to ask him to get out. But then you also have to pay for the consequences.

Akin has the law on his side always has he is now officially in to stay.

Will be interesting to see if all the RINOs that told us to get on board with Mitt will get on board with Akin.

Conservatives hate many of the things Mitt has done far more than any hate what Akin said. But nothing can take back what Mitt actually did. Romney Care being by far the worst. At least Akin did take back what he said the next day. Romney still praises Romney Care as now written. I can not tell you how much that offends me.

Either get on board Akin now or Clair wins it is that simple. He will get a decent percentage of the vote and all he needs is 5% to assure any sore loser that jumps in will lose. The dam Party Bosses just lost us a seat by jumping all over this and trying to undo the will of the people and force him out. Shame on them.

He is a loser. He is done.

If he stays in, it will be his fault if the GOP doesn’t take the Senate.

If he stays in, ClairE wins.

If he stays and a Republican runs as a write in, Claire probably still wins.

Claire only loses if Akin leaves.

The party bosses and the rest of bogeymen are nothing more than foolish blather.

Period.

Story.

End of.

I’m done. Keep backing Akin. I hope he bankrupts himself and his family. Further, I hope he and his wife get the Ben Nelson treatment X 1000 for the rest of their egotistical, selfish, self-serving, governmental-teat-sucking lives.

The collar is torn on these arseholes and their stupid followers and supporters, which include the Huckster.

I am tired of defending stupid people.

Let’s be clear…there are no rules being broken by asking the guy to leave. And I’m pretty sure voters had no idea beforehand about his views on legitimate rape and how a woman’s body has this magical power to protect itself against racist sperm. He would not have won the primary if he had said that before the vote.

I wonder what the Duke Lacrosse team and Steven Pagones’ thoughts are on legitimate rape….

He really hates it every time he is proved wrong.

Wrong this time in that he really thought Akin would surrender.

Cook Political Report has declared Todd Akin “unelectable” and moved the 2012 U.S. senate race in Missouri to a projected Democrat win.

“unelectable” !!! That’s one I hadn’t seen before. I didn’t know that the scale went that low.

I wonder if she’ll find time to make it to the convention now, with this war on women theme rejuvenated by her opponent? With that double digit lead it has to be tempting.

My guess, she’ll stick with what she said, just in case someone new emerges. She is really kicking herself for saying she was skipping so early though. Now she has to hang around the bumpkins. She could have half-arsed it and just tossed earmarks out there as support for that moderate label she holds so dearly to instead of missing abortionpalooza.

Steveangell on August 24, 2012 at 12:00 AM

Amen! It is their overreaction that is doing the most harm. Imagine the party of states rights, rejecting a state’ freely chosen candidate, by a candidate that hasn’t yet won? If they attack Missouri’s open primaries now, then they open themselves to the “Mitt did it too” charge.

The dems will have this “state’s rights” thing to use as high-tech weaponry against the GOP for decades.

Those (Monday morning quarterbacks) who insisted that Akin should have just given a simple answer and thusly, avoided the blown up conflict, might ask the same thing about the GOP’s stupid over-reaction. Why didn’t the GOP elites just say-”we disagree with his views on rape” and shut up?

Again, this entire Akin thing may be a good thing if it causes the dems to go whacko as the party of “death and taxation.”
