Yes his remark was stupid...but why isn't anyone demanding Biden resign for his stupidity, Orr maybe sharpton for his obvious racism. People are not evil because of one slip....or did I miss something?

Why are so many Republicans demanding he quit the race? Why are rumors already circulating that he'll quit within 24 hours?

Well Purple Dim . . . conservatives have principles. When an loser like Akin commits the political equivalent of hari kari we aren't afraid to say so. Unlike that clown car in Washington that continues to encourage character assassination and stupidity at the highest levels from the lowest level VP I can remember in a long time.
Everyone --- everyone! -- from Mitt Romney to Ron Johnson to Barack Obama has denounced Todd Akin's unbelievable remarks about rape and pregnancy.

Some are raising the possibility that Akin should simply remove himself from the race and avoid doing more damage -- to the pro-life cause, to GOP hopes of retaking the Senate, to Missouri's hopes of replacing Obama-Claire McCaskill with a senator who represents mainstream Missouri values.

Akin SHOULD resign.  There are two good candidates Akin defeated in the primary -- after McCaskill interfered in it to help secure Akin's win for this very reason....
