Your View: Divisive

JOPLIN, Mo. — Why shouldn’t Todd Akin be allowed to show his ignorance with the rest of them?

Or, could it be that at least some of these so-called mistakes in speeches are on purpose?

After all, we have to keep the American people divided among themselves. We certainly wouldn’t want them to come together and come up with a way to stop our foolishness.

So, throw out a bone for them to chew on and keep their minds off of what the politicians are doing.
