Lulli Akin, the U.S. Senate candidate’s wife, has compared his abandonment by party bosses to rape.
In an interview with “The National Journal,” she first described the move to get her husband to step down from the Senate race in Missouri as “tyranny, a top-down approach.”
She went on to say, “Party bosses dictating who is allowed to advance through the party and make all the decisions – it’s just like 1776 in that way.”
That was when colonists “rose up and said, ‘Not in my home, you don’t come and rape my daughters and my … wife. But that is where we are again.”
Yes, back to rape…
His priority now is “to do the right thing,” he told the Nixa crowd to applause and a chorus of “amen’s.”
The right thing might be removing the word “rape” from any more comments – it’s giving opponents way too much material to mock. And if they insist?
Just remember that “no means no.”
