Todd Akin Wants You to Get Angry at Jamie Foxx and Give Him Money

You may have missed it, but a harmless joke from Jamie Foxx -- a reference to Barack Obama as "our Lord and savior" -- has stirred up the predictable sectors of the outrage machine. I almost missed it, until Todd Akin's campaign reached out to its fundraising list and reminded me of its existence.

Article after article has been written about a no-name filmmaker who produced a short video mocking Islam.

How much do you think will be written about an Oscar winning Hollywood star mocking Christianity.

Friends, I may have lost the Senate race, but I do not plan to stop speaking out about the problems facing our country, and I encourage you to do so as well!

Thanks for all you do, in particular your recent help in getting our last few remaining campaign bills paid promptly. We're making great progress on that front, but could still use your help if you can donate $10 today!

You heard the man.
