MO republican Todd Aken has got to be the dumbest politician ever. You mean to tell me he didn't realize the stupidity of his remark before it popped out of his mouth?
Even if there were a modicum of truth (which there isn't) to what he said, wouldn't he have realized the insensitivity of the comment?
It's a measure of his arrogance and ignorance that he wasn't able to figure this out.
Are republican politicians generally less sensitive to these kinds of issues or is it my imagination?
Consider the first thing out of Romney's mouth for example: "He meant well" Oh??!! Did he??
