    Republican makes stupid statement … everyone swarm

    Republican makes stupid statement … everyone swarm

    The Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri , Todd Akin, made a stupid statement on a talk show today regarding abortion in cases of rape.  I’m not going to defend the statement.  It was similar to Whoppi Goldberg’s rape-rape comment.  He now has apologized.

    Yet the reaction not only from the left but also Republicans on Twitter was swift that he should be forced step down, be thrown overboard, summarily executed, etc.

    Dana Loesch was almost alone is saying, hold on a second, give the guy some time to clarify and don’t hold him to a standard Democrats are not held to until that clarification comes.  Which it has.  Loesch also pointed out that making a stupid statement is not the same as Claire McCaskill tanking the economy and voting for Obamacare.

    Now Loesch is the object of the left’s invective on Twitter, including from well-known execrable characters (also known as nutroots leading lights).

    Really, I understand why the left seeks to take advanatge of screw-ups by our candidates, but can’t we give someone a little bit of time to apologize before we swarm too?

    Must we form the circular firing squad within minutes without giving the candidate a chance to react himself, and hand the election to a woman who is a walking disaster for our nation?

    If he stays in the race, they’ll beat him to death on the general stupidity of his comment, then try to smear all Republicans with guilt by association. When that plays out, they’ll beat him to death on one particular within his dumb comment: “You say you got this medical info from doctors.. which doctors, Mr. Akin? Can you name them, please?” and then try to smear all Republicans with guilt by association. When THAT plays out, they’ll beat him to death on another particular, his use of the phrase “cases of legitimate rape”. “Mr. Akin, what did you mean by ‘legitimate rape’? Are you insinuating that many reported rapes are not legitimate? Why do you and your party hate women, sir?” – and again smear all Republicans with guilt by association.

    How long could the liberal media drag this out if Akin stays in? Oh, I’d say till about Novemeber 6th or so.

    Replace Akin now and by late September people will have to be reminded of that Akin scandal back last month. The Missouri voters clearly want McCaskill gone. Any half-decent Republican will do.

    Sarah Palin … listen to her, Republicans. Are you even capable of listening?

    Apparently Silverman is not on the top of the list being considered to replace Todd “I am not a witch” Akin.

    Silverman.

    Silverman? Steelman? Someone help me out here.

    Apparently it’s State Treasurer Sarah Steelman. Oops.
