Akin Nothing if fil-A Controversy





You think Todd Akin isn’t one provocative dude?

After Chick-fil-A’s fundamentalist CEO went all in against gay marriage, Senate candidate Akin didn’t just show up earlier this month at this Liberty, MO. outlet for a sandwich and a little solidarity, he actually played host, waiter and manager. Having chalked up his “legitimate rape” bomb to having misspoken, these photos suggest perhaps a different agenda — showing a guy (with the Senate, and all that power in his sights) determined to push the culture war envelope.

Here’s the whole photo album from Akin’s FB site.
