Teagan Goddard reports that Todd Akin is considering writing a book now that he has lost both his House seat and the Senate seat he would almost certainly have won if he had not revealed his ignorance and extremism to the world. That is, of course, the first step to becoming a star on the Christian rubber chicken circuit, giving speeches for $5000 a pop. As one of the leading members of the Family (aka the Fellowship), he won’t be out of work long. He’s too well connected.
