McCaskill: Akin ‘Makes Michele Bachmann Look Like A Hippie’

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) on Friday asserted that her opponent, Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), is to the right of even the most fringe members of the Republican Party.

“If you look at some of the things that Todd Akin has said over the years, I mean, he’s said things like in the heart of liberalism is a hatred of God. He has been a handful of votes against things like the sex offender registry, and the Center for Missing and Exploited Children,” McCaskill told the panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”  “I mean, this is somebody who kind of makes Michele Bachmann look like a hippie.”
