SPRINGFIELD, MO – Republicans and Democrats alike are shocked to find that even after so many controversial comments from Republican senate candidate Todd ‘Legitimate Rape’ Akin, some Republicans still, for some reason, have signs supporting him in their front yards.
“It’s mind-blowing. Just that anyone could support him after what he’s said is crazy,” said local resident Casey Port, a registered Democrat.
“I’m voting for Todd Akin. I’m a Republican, through and through. But, gosh, I would never let anyone know that he’s getting my vote,” said a local Republican, who wished to remain anonymous.
Even after Todd ‘No Wildcats’ Akin’s arguably sexist comments about Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, he still manages to have a few proud supporters.
“I threw away my sign,” said local resident Kevin Alexander, “To be honest, I don’t really care about the ‘not ladylike’ thing, or even the ‘a woman’s body can shut that down’ thing. But I sometimes talk to women or try to date them, so they can’t know I’m voting for Akin.”
“I’m not going to start supporting McCaskill,” said the anonymous Republican, “but supporting Akin is just embarrassing. Even Sarah Palin said he should leave the race. And if Palin feels ashamed, then you know its bad.”
“Some of the neighborhood kids will put Akin signs in people’s yards as a mean joke,” said Port. “It’s happened once to us in our yard–I got some really dirty looks from the neighbors until I took them down.” She added: “Anyone who sports an Akin sign is a very brave person. They have more courage than me.”
