Todd Akin just can't stop saying stupid things about women. Last week, after a tense debate with Senator Claire McCaskill, Akin told reporters that his Democratic opponent has not been as "lady-like" as she was in her 2006 re-election bid. Critics claim Akin's words are just further evidence of his flagrant sexism, but we at Daily RFT know that Akin simply longs for the old days "when girls were girls and [Congress]men were men."
Akin has been doing a lot in recent weeks to win back his lady supporters. We
wrote er, found this personals ad from Akin's camp, in which he describes his perfect "lady-like" supporters:
Embattled Gentleman Seeking "Lady-Like" Supporters for Senate Race
Married, Christian, father of six seeks ideal female submissives to help with landslide election victory, maybe more. I am an old-fashioned gentleman who believes chivalry--read: patriarchy--will never die. If you're achin' for a change in Congress, I want you to get behind me. Err, lol, how about just under me? ;-)
You: fair-skinned and daintily-built with a temperament to match. Knows that a woman's place is in the House, not the Senate. Or better yet, just in the kitchen. You're into small government but like your personalities bigggg and unwrapped (I mentioned that I have six kids, right?)
You want to be pampered and taken care of at all times... meaning you don't care how much money you and your ladyfriends make. Just as long as there's a man around to pay the bills, you know everything will be just fine.
That also means you're okay with letting us guys do the big thinking. Especially when it comes to your ladyparts. Sometimes things itch, burn, or bleed down there. That's really disgusting and no one wants to hear about it... but you don't even think about whipping out your insurance card before you ask your husband or father what he thinks.
Huge turn-on: a magic vagina.
Ladies, you can bet I don't stray. That's right, no matter what happens I am in it to win it, so expect single-minded, bull-headed commitment from me.
Reply by putting "legitimate" in the subject line, so I know you're real.
