Todd Akin: The Best Revenge is a Mad Twitter Offense

Embattled Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) is engaging in a war of tweets today in an attempt to pounce on his critics and raise cash. Some of the many social-media statements from the GOP nominee vying to oust incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.):

"Donations are pouring in. Thank you for standing up against the liberal elite"

"We have raised our online fundraising goal. Help us hit $10k to fight the liberal elite"

"Glad I was able to apologize to a national audience on the Today Show. Everyone makes mistakes. Please stand with me"

"Also went on GMA today to fight back against the liberal elites who continue their attacks. Stand with me."

"I made clear I was staying in this race, yet this is the headline. … Will you help me fight back?"

"I don't believe party bosses should trump the votes of the people of MO … Chip-in $3 if you agree!"

"Will you chip-in $5 to help me fight the party bosses?  RT this image if you'll join me!"

"Missourians, I need your help. You're ready to put a conservative voice in the Senate. Chip-in $5 to help us get there"

"The media is against us. The Washington elites are against us. The party bosses are against us. Help us fight back:"

Meanwhile, Dennis Miller tweeted, "I'm creeped out by the shape of Todd Akin's head."
