Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin is making a strong case for enshrinement into the "Say What Now?" Hall of Fame after his latest remarks about incumbent senator, Claire McCaskill:
She goes to Washington, D.C., it's a little bit like one of those dogs, you know 'fetch'. She goes to Washington, D.C., and get all of these taxes and red tape and bureaucracy and executive orders and agencies and she brings all of this stuff and dumps it on us in Missouri.
Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh is under fire for comments he made Thursday night in his final debate against Democrat Tammy Duckworth -- he said he opposes abortion "without exception," even when the life of the mother is at stake.
The trouble came when the Tea Partier doubled down on his position with the media afterward:
There's no such exception as life of the mother. And as far as health of the mother, same thing, with advances in science and technology, health of the mother has become a tool for abortions anytime under any reason.
The facts Walsh used to justify his position have been proven absolutely false. In fact, studies show that pregnancy-related deaths for women are on the rise.
