At least Todd Akin and his staff are on the same page. The Senate hopeful's comparison of incumbent opponent Claire McCaskill to a dog this weekend elicited gasps from the media and public alike. (Akin said McCaskill goes to Washington to "fetch.") But Akin's camp isn't running from it. Instead, one of the team's top advisers, Rick Tyler, clarified that he doesn't only agree with Akin's comment, he finds it funny. "If Claire McCaskill were a dog, she'd be a Bullshitsu," [sic] Tyler tweeted Monday.
