This photo combo shows U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., left, and Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. Since first uttering the words “legitimate rape,” Akin has continued to say things that have distracted attention from his campaign theme against McCaskill. Akin has linked McCaskill to President Barack Obama and his spending and health care policies. But unwanted attention remains _ most recently he compared McCaskill to a dog, and before that he suggested she wasn’t “ladylike.” (AP Photo/Sid Hastings, Manuel Balce Ceneta)
