As I predicted, the Republican National Committee is back in the Missouri race supporting Todd Akin. When the whole “legitimate rape” controversy took place, RNC chair Reince Priebus said there was no way in hell they were going to support Akin even if the polls showed he was tied and could seriously win.
And here he is a month later, changing his tune dramatically.
Asked directly if he considered Akin to be a better option for Missouri voters than McCaskill, Priebus did not hesitate.
“Well, absolutely,” he said in the interview. “That’s a given, and as chairman of the party, I have an obligation to make sure we win as many seats in the Senate as possible.”
Gee, who could have seen that coming? I mean, other than anyone with a brain.
