It's a good thing Missouri Republicans can't read, otherwise they might be tempted to consult Breitbart.com, which can't think. And good grief, Breitbart's "Big Government"-page stupidity is getting even worse:
Democrats want to make social issues the focus on the campaign as opposed to the economy, where they're losing, and Akin's interview gave them them the momentary opportunity they needed to shift attention away from the lagging economy.
Who else is giving Democrats the opportunity? Mitt Romney, who has been obsessed of late with lying about Obama's welfare reforms, rather than lying about Obama's economy. One wonders: Will this reality, which is plastered on television screens everywhere, ever dawn on the dim bulbs at Breitbart?
And there was this, same piece:
Was Akin's "misspeech" ridiculous? Of course. Is it worse than the misdeeds of his opponent, Claire McCaskill, who ... tripled our deficit?
Bet you didn't know that. But then again, neither does the Treasury Department.
When George W. left office he also left a deficit of $1.4 trillion. He dumped it right in Obama's lap. And since Claire McCaskill didn't assume her Senate seat until 2007, she wasn't around to assist the GOP's fiscal conservatism of two massively expensive, unfunded wars and two massively expensive, unfunded tax cuts, all four of which substantially resulted in the Bushian whiplash of surplus-to-greater-debt.
Where Breitbart gets "tripled our deficit," I have no idea. Oh wait, yes I do, they simply made it up.
So I contradict my own lede. "Making stuff up" isn't "stupidity."
