The comment comes after Akin drew fire for comments likening McCaskill to a dog at a fundraiser Saturday. “She goes to Washington, D.C., and it’s a little bit like, uh, you know, one of those dog, you know, ‘fetch,'" Akin said. She goes to D.C. “and gets all of these taxes and red tape and bureaucracy and executive orders and agencies and she brings all of this stuff and dumps it on us in Missouri…"
Tyler downplayed the comments Sunday. Mr. Akin, “made an analogy — probably could have made a better one," he said, via the New York Times. "Everybody’s going to find a reason to get their feelings hurt and get bent out of shape."
