If stupid comments were the deciding factor on whether or not a candidate should step down, shouldn't have Biden stepped down by now?
The guy goofed and came across like an out-of-touch fool. What is worse is loosing a good chance at winning the Senate and possibly even with 60 votes. Sometime conservatives are their own worst enemy. Akin wasn't the most conservative candidate of the group. It is the nature of a republic that sometimes the best choice won't be left standing. Mitt was not my guy, but I'd take the devil I do know, to the one I don't.
