Akin is like a navy captain that has run his ship aground. He may still be perfectley capable of driving a ship but has lost command due to one instance of negligence. In this "war" aginst the radical left in theis country there has to be a chain of command by the lead candidates (Romney/Ryan) and super pacs that can fund thes federal office seekers. Akins like a bad captain was more than willing to take the money but is too proud to take the correction. Who needs him?
