Ok, maybe it’s more newsworthy when Todd Akin (R-Fringe) makes sense. But Todd put himself in a small cluster of the right wing yet again yesterday.
The House considered House Resolution 442 which recognizes “the importance of the Child and Adult Care Food Program and its positive effect on the lives of low-income children and families”. Since we’re actually posting about this, you probably know that Akin and 9 other Republicans voted no on this resolution.
I have no idea how crazy Todd has to get before a legitimate opponent makes it through the Democratic primary to take him on in 2010. But since Roy Blunt is running for the Senate, the burden of voting like a nutty right-winger is completely on the shoulders of Todd “Davey Crockett’s Blackberry” Akin.
