McCaskill: Akin Makes Bachmann Look Like A Hippie

She joked that if President Obama were asked about her, he would say she could be "a real pain -- maybe not ladylike." McCaskill must outperform Obama to win re-election. "Watch the national Republicans," McCaskill said at the end of the interview. She brought up two Senate candidates running in blue states -- Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., and Connecticut GOP nominee Linda McMahon, who she said are "really going to be in trouble" if national Republicans decide to come back in and fund Akin. The National Republican Senatorial Committee cracked open the door to supporting Akin earlier this week, but NRSC chair John Cornyn said Thursday that they have no plans to put money into the race. -- Sarah Mimms contributed.
