Actually, Akin's remark was inarguably stupid.....astonishingly stupid.....frighteningly stupid.
The larger issue, in my mind, at least, is that an individual capable of making such a moronic comment, on a topic that he should have simply avoided (a la Newt's approach to "trap" questions set by the hard-left "media") was the Republican candidate in a very important race.
I'm conservative. I vote Republican. I find Obozo to be an unmitigated disaster....
..but none of that precludes my stating that the Republican Party need put forward more capable, media-astute candidates - and better catch up with the libbies' information gathering capabilities, and soon!
