It's seems too many are willing to seel their principles for political gain ...can't they see THAT is what got us here in the first place...looking the other way, toleration "just a little" corruption, etc.? If Akin is comfortable with terms like "legitimate rape," I want nothing to do with anything else that he might wish to "legitimize." SURELY we can find SOMEBODY with a little more sense.

I don't mean every Republican will lose, but there is great political peril in not sealing the hole in Republican armor that has opened in Missouri and instead permitting it to remain a Democratic pressure point. Further, "for the good of the country" (the mantra accompanying the partywide chorus of pleas to Akin to drop out of his U.S. Senate race), Republicans must resume funding Akin's viable campaign ASAP, after cutting it...
