Hey, They Voted For Him

Republican bigwigs are trying to push Todd Akin out of the race in Missouri. That takes complete disregard of the fact that Missouri selects its candidates by a primary system, so pushing him out defies the will of the electorate because the party brass think they know better.

And if you don't think that charges of party elitism won't be bandied about if they do manage to push Akin out, then I have a bridge to sell you.

Speaking of bridges to sell to you, the coroner in Jonesboro, Arkansas is saying that despite being handcuffed and in spite of being frisked twice by the cops, that Chavis Carter did indeed shoot himself in the right temple with a handgun.

Ayup. Suurrre he did. And Salvadore Allende shot himself in the back thirty times, pausing only once to reload.

Yes - it has always been a mystery how he did manage to reload :)

Kind of reminds me of the Baader Meinhoff gang members shooting themselves in the back of the head while in prison.

The kind of cops that can miss a handgun in two friskings should be fired, as well as any other cops that went through the same training. As should the trainers that gave that training. And the management that kept those trainers training. Fire them all.

Or admit that cop murdered a prisoner in his custody.

I'm trying to imagine what the kid said to the cop that made him shoot the kid.

Montag, it was probably something along the lines of, "I want a lawyer."
