Akin Can't Spell Or Woo Women Voters

On Tuesday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the Missouri Senate candidate's campaign was forced to take down its "Women for Akin" site after the paper pointed out that one of the women in the prominent photo was not a supporter of Akin, and, in fact, worked on behalf of his opponent, incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.).
The website featured a photo of Akin with standing with his wife and two women, but one of the women was Corinne Matti, a tracker for the state's Democratic Party.
But that wasn't the only mistake. Text to the right of the photo read, "I'm a women and I support Todd." 
Of course, "women" should be the singular "woman."
For its part, the Akin campaign told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that this was a draft version of the site that wasn't yet supposed to go live. 
The paper heard from a McCaskill spokesperson, so click over to the Post-Dispatch to see what she had to say about the image.
They knowingly lied.  They are so desperate to show women love Akin that they had to hijack a photo of a woman they knew did not support them.

Personally, I'm glad that Akin didn't drop out of the race.  It all but guarantees McCaskill's victory.

Any woman who backs Akin is a traitor to her own kind.  The sole exception is his wife, who knew what she married.  But when she continues to compare the GOP's actions to rape, she is also doing her man no favors.

Crash and burn, baby.  Crash and burn.
