If Claire McCaskill were a dog, she’d be a “Bullshitsu”,— Rick Tyler
WASHINGTON, D.C. — A top campaign adviser to Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri, compared Akin’s opponent to a dog via Twitter on Monday, apparently running with a remark made by the candidate over the weekend.
“If Claire McCaskill were a dog, she’d be a ‘Bullshitsu,’” Rick Tyler tweeted Monday.
When BuzzFeed asked Tyler, via email, whether the tweet was a joke, he responded, “Yes. It was a joke. Get it?”
On Saturday, Akin remarked at a fundraising event that his opponent, Sen. Claire McCaskill, “fetches” government from Washington, like “one of those dogs.”
The remark drew criticism, particularly in light of some of Akin’s earlier comments, including one in which he said women’s bodies can prevent pregnancies in the event of “legitimate rape.”
