Todd Akin’s comeback tour is inadvertently turning into a comedy show. On the Steve Deace show, Deace began the interview by declaring, “We’re conservatives here, so we’re not into victimology.” And literally one minute later Akin said, “There was an obvious intent on the part of left to victimize anybody which (sic) is Republican if they could on the subject.”
Does Deace say, “Hey, wait a minute, you just said they victimized you and we’re conservatives so we aren’t into victimology”? Of course not.

And then he goes on to say that the media tried to “assassinate” his political career:
“The media wants to roll another Republican and do this assassination thing, but when is someone just going to stand up to these jerks and tell them what they are and say they are manipulating the news for their own agenda,” he said.
But he’s totally not a victim! And conservatives aren’t into being victims, even when they say they’re victims! They’re just completely oblivious to how incoherent and contradictory they are.
