It was bound to happen. In times of trouble, the eyes of the nation turn towards Hamilton “Ham” Sandwich, Esq. for stability and reassurance. Now, Jim Geraghty of National Review Online’s “Campaign Spot” has floated Ham’s name to replace the inept imbecile Todd Akin as the GOP candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri.
But Akin has really stepped in it, and his interview with Sean Hannity Tuesday night suggested he wasn’t in complete connection to reality, with the GOP nominee complaining that Mitt Romney shouldn’t be weighing in on the matter. In a race where a right-leaning ham sandwich could win, Akin leaves us yearning for the common sense, message discipline, and far-sighted vision of a right-leaning ham sandwich.
