Akin Must Go
His comments were ignorant and offensive on every level. As bad as any Biden comment has been, and there have been some aweful ones, Akin’s comments yesterday constitute an unrecoverable event. Morally he must go.
Practically, he MUST go. Claire McCaskill is THE single most vulnerable democratic senator on the ballot this November. I would be leading her by 10 points if I registered today. So would you. The only way for the Republicans to lose this seat is to implode. Akin imploded yesterday. He has until 5pm today to do the right thing for himself and his party. He doesn’t deserve the seat if he wins. If he loses, we could lose control of the Senate. Obamacare hangs in the balance.
