Todd Akin Apology Parody On Funny Or Die Channels Billy Ray Cyrus (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

These days, it's almost as if a politician can't exercise his First Amendment right to say ignorant, offensive nonsense about women's bodies without the liberal media jumping all over him or her (just kidding, it's always a him). After all, such was the case with Rep. Todd Akin, who showed us that sometimes saying "sorry" just isn't enough.

But truly, isn't Todd Akin the real victim? Hasn't he been unfairly villainized?

In Funny Or Die's parody of Akin's "Forgiveness" ad, Creed Bratton (best known for playing the character Creed Bratton on "The Office," and also for '60s band The Grass Roots) shows us how Akin really should have apologized. This one probably would have resulted in a lot less blowback, or more, depending on how you feel about politicians channelling Billy Ray Cyrus while singing, "My Akin Breakin' Heart."
