Where was big, tough-talking Gov. Christie in this situation? Oh, I forgot, he was sucking up to Obama and doing photo-ops!
Guy: Congratulations! You just handed Clare McCaskill another whole bag of sound bites (train wreck, mess, pathetic, etc.) to use against Todd Akin. At least he stumbled in a live TV interview; you've had over a month to think about the situation. Didn't it occur to you what damage you're doing to his candidacy? And please explain how you are able to see into his heart and declare that he's acting out of selfishness. If you want to see "stupid", it's on the front of your medicine cabinet.
The back-stabber that most gets to me is Sarah Palin. Words fail me. They don't really, but I'd descend into obscenity and blasphemy.

Akin's Idiocy is Infectious

I guess all the pejorative adjectives linked to Todd Akin in this article also apply to me. It doesn't seem so far-fetched that the horrendous emotional and physical trauma and stress of a rape would alter the physiology of the victim. Akin can still easily win the seat and be a reliable (and that bears repeating, RELIABLE) conservative vote in the Senate, if the Republicans could only find the courage to support him.

It's too late. You can lose Missouri by continuing the relentless, and sometimes savage, attacks on Akin, for what would be shrugged off by a Democrat, or you can shut up, restore the funding, and very likely win the seat and the state. Whoever his replacement was would have a media wolf-pack shadowing him (or her).
What do the people who want Akin to resign think is going to happen if he does? You know the media is going besiege his replacement and probably goad him or her into a denunciation of Akin, thus totally alienating his numerous--and now fervent--followers, probably wounding them to the point of keeping them away from the polls, in which case Obama and McCaskill win Missouri. The flip side is different: if he stays in, who of Akin's Republican critics is going to sit it out or vote out of spite for Obama and McCaskill, especially when Akin is a guaranteed vote to repeal Obamacare?
If the Republicans are damaged in the election due to this incident, in will be because they revealed themselves to be like a group of prissy girls in a school yard running and screaming from a boy who bent down and picked up a snake. If they didn’t like what he said, or the way he put it, all they had to do was state that they disagree with him. Instead, led by Ann Coulter, they had a hysterical fit and turned into a lynch mob. We speak around 15,000 words per day. If Akin has been at it for sixty-odd years, he’s spoken about 350 million words. Wouldn’t it be worthwhile listening to a few more than the half-dozen or so that he clumsily used in an interview. Maybe check the record before the interview to see what exactly are his belie
