People seem to forget (or ignore) that the only reason Akin won the primary was because the demoncrats spent money in his favor and crossed over to vote for him. Even still, he did not win the majority of republicans voting in the primary. Yes, he voted conservative as a representative, but it's time to face reality. Your principled stand will do nobody any good when Obama nominates one or two more libs to the supreme court and McCaskill votes for them. Wake up.
