Akin Says McCaskill No Longer "Ladylike"

Rep. Todd Akin (R) said Sen. Claire McCaskill's (D) demeanor during their debate last week was not as "ladylike" as it was when she faced off with Sen. Jim Talent (R) in 2006, the Kansas City Star reports.

Said Akin: "I think we have a very clear path to victory, and apparently Claire McCaskill thinks we do, too, because she was very aggressive at the debate, which was quite different than it was when she ran against Jim Talent. She had a confidence and was much more ladylike (in 2006), but in the debate on Friday she came out swinging, and I think that's because she feels threatened."
