Akin reinforced a myriad of anti-republican stereoptypes. Abortion is a losing issue for republicans. Not because they are wrong, but because most americans are tired of the issue and the only thing most hear is that republicans are trying to control us again.

Civil rights, that was a loser too?

Truth matters more than political wins and losses. If truth is thrown aside for the sake of the win there is no point to the win because such a win turns us into our enemies.

Republican Party operatives, who wasted no time indicting their Missouri Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin for his interview faux pas on abortion, may bear more responsibility than Akin himself for the mess that has been created.

Akin’s statement, suggesting low probability of conception in cases of ‘legitimate rape,” was barely coherent and was said with neither force nor conviction. He said it was a view he “understood from doctors.” And soon after, he apologized.

Akin has served six terms in Congress with a consistent, unblemished conservative record. The fact that leaders of his own party joined hands...
