I'm thinking maybe Akin is REALLY a democrat and is sabotaging the senate rece - handing it to the democrats. He needs to go. If not, a third party or write in candidate is needed. Those who defend him need a reality check. Too much is at stake (control fo the senate, supreme court judges) to stand on some weird "principle" that thinks the democrats get away with it and so should we. He will never be elected now. He's too stupid.
