Well said Diana. When a decent person said something out of line, he should be challenged, allowed to correct his statement or apologize. The hateful campaign against Akin was much worse than anything that he did. Coulter, Malkin, and even Limbaugh turned in shameful performances.
Romney and Ryan have not only said dumb things. They have done dumb things, like supporting the financial bailouts. The smart thing for them to do was keep their mouth shut. But they aren't smart enough. This will be another hold your nose and vote election.
