Blame Akin and Mourdock if you wish but, I will blame the people that stayed home. You know who you are. You hoped he would win, the polls looked promising but, you couldn't bring yourself to actually vote for him because you are a religious bigot. If Obama won reelection with fewer votes than McCain received there is only one question. It is not where were the democrats. Many of them stayed home apparently as we expected. The question is where were the republicans? Apparently many of them stayed home as well. Why? The answer lies in the bigoted columns run here during the primary.
