McCaskill: Akin Makes Bachmann Look Like A Hippie
Sen. Claire McCakill, D-Mo., is "at a loss" over Rep. Todd Akin's most recent eyebrow-raising comments, she told hosts on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" today.
As we flagged Thursday, Akin said McCaskill was more "ladylike" during the 2006 campaign, and that she debated like a "wildcat."
"I don't know Joe, what do you think? I am at a loss," she said. "I don't know exactly what his accusation that I am not 'ladylike' means. I am a former courtroom prosecutor and I try to be strong and informed. I think the debate was tough for Todd because I went through the list of his very, very extreme positions and I think maybe he wasn't prepared to answer to some of that."
McCaskill said she has had a lot of supporters weigh in on whether she's ladylike "with 5 bucks."
"This is someone who kind of makes Michele Bachmann look like a hippie," McCaskill said of Akin, citing his votes against things like a sex offender registry.
