Tell McCaskill your standing with Todd Akin.
Rep. Todd Akin, struggling to revive his battered campaign, launched a page on his website asking supports to rally behind him. “I made a mistake,” he said, referring to his preposterous claim that victims of “legitimate rape” can’t get pregnant. “I used the wrong words in the wrong way.” Above the quote, the campaign asked fans to “tell McCaskill your standing with Todd Akin.” Giddy critics immediately spotted the error and tweeted their glee to the world, ribbing Akin for “using the wrong word” to “apologize for using the wrong words.” The campaign quickly corrected the error, or tried to, spelling it “your’re,” before trying a third time and getting it right.
I sometimes get up at night when I can’t sleep and walk down into my library and open one of my books and read a paragraph and say, ‘My God, did I write that?’
