Yes. You can be the BEST conservative in the world, but if you’re an idiot, you’re not helping your cause in any form or fashion. Simply believing in conservative principles is NEVER enough, you need to be able to intelligently and eloquently defend those principles.

Coming out and saying “I love God, I love this country, I hate abortion, I hate taxes and I love the military” shouldn’t be enough to qualify a conservative for office.

We are talking about a sitting congressman impacting the most critical election in the last 100 years.

Not debating some research paper.

Misused word? Claire, is that you? He suggested that a woman’s body will magically reject pregnancy due to rape. Now he’s claiming not to be a Dr? Then he shouldn’t have been shooting his mouth off. Not only will he cost the GOP this seat, and possibly the Senate, he could conceivably cost Romney the state which makes the math much harder.

No I am not Claire. His suggestion that a womans body would magically deal with the zygote, should fertilization occur, he says was medically in error. And it is a wrong concept.

If you think back to the case Roe v.Wade the alledged victim of rape, at a later date, said she made it up. But, there was a pregnancy. Was that a "legitimate" rape. That word is inartful and mispoken. Who among us has not misspoken? This frenzy around a misspoken word is not unlike the "potato" remark of Dan Quayle. It turned out that there were two proper ways to spell the word,....but not until political correctness took its toll.

Now all of the gunslingers are shooting at Akins feet, saying, "Dance Cowboy, Dance". Well, we shall see.

I do think it’s an uproar over nothing, but it’s a very damaging situation. I don’t know if he can survive it, but I understand why he wants to try.

While he is "trying" to survive, the rest of the party becomes the laughing stock of the world and everything we have all worked for goes right down the drain. I agree with the guy that says this guy is a Democratic plant. Only a Democrat could be this damn dumb.

I heard one of his supporters in MO saying he is a supporter of the Fair Tax. The Fair Tax would be the biggest transfer of power from DC back to the people in this country’s history. That’s why the establishment wants him out, so that they can replace him with one of their guys, to keep up the status quo. I’m barely scraping by, but I’m going to send him some money.

Don't vote for him if you feel that way. Perhaps McCaskel is your senator to choose. But that has nothing to do with the liberal seizure of the word 'legitimate' and run with it. That is their word...like choice, investment (instead of taxation).

My usual rule of thumb is that positions based mostly or entirely on principle are unconvincing, because nobody is that principled.

Hey, you know what,..you are right. Better yet why don’t we just drop all differentiation between the liberal and conservative. We will let the liberals define what is acceptible and right and we will go with that. Yes, I am sure that is the answer to our differences. We can all become proaborts, pro-Big Government, and will only utter the words approved by the Democrats. That will fix all consternation. Fixed it!

From listening to him, the guy is clearly in shock and in denial.

I think he just find it impossible to believe that in the span of 30 secs, he destroyed entire political career. He doesn’t want to believe it, he doesn’t think it should happen, he doesn’t believe it *can* happen.

Unfortunately, it can happen, and it did happen. By the time he comes to grips with it, which will be when he’s down 15 points in the polls sometimes in late September. It will be too late.

He tried to engage the PeePee & Cooter Party on their own turf.

Many Republicans and conservatives don't understand the Democrats. Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid do all the complex thinking for the hive mind. The rank & file Democrats are left with that which they understand - their PeePees and their Cooters. As this is what they think about most of their day (since the important thoughts are being taken care by Big Brain Obama), they're self-anointed experts on the subject.

So Todd Akin wanders into their playpen and presumes to tell them how their ladyparts and littleboyparts work.

Smooth move, Exlax...

If you don't believe me, go read the comments on nearly any other site. It's all smugness about knowing more about their ladyparts than this old fossil Akin.

You know, this really scares me. We only see a few Congressmen and women as the faces of the Republican party. If Akin is the type of man or woman they have to keep under wraps except for a few appearances every two years before the election, things are much worse than I thought they could ever be.

You are hearing what you want to hear. He has apologized vociferously. Have you not been listening. If you look I put the phrase ‘play the game’ in italics because I knew someone like you would wilfully and with malice engaged in what the democrats engage in...that is misapplying the written word. You say he is a complete idiot. Is that more stupid and insensitive than what Akin said. Have you adtually met and evaluated Akins cognitive normalcy. Loyalty is not the RINO strong suit.

This is getting ridiculous.

Aikin spoke what is known to be true, in a clumsy way.

High stress can and often does shut down a woman’s ovaries for a while. It would depend on the timing for what he offers to be operative.

He probably should learn to just shut up.

It was painful to listen to. You almost have to ask who is paying him big bucks to stay in now? Something is just not right with this picture.

Yes, this is weird.

Heard that Obama intended to use religion as a wedge issue, and this guy is using that line as well, after riling up the female voters (another Obama trick).

I'd like to know how may "pure" conservatives accept funding from liberal donors.

In all truth the man is poorly informed and way out of date. One could excuse poor choice of “legitimate” (by which meant legally established as statutory rape), but the “automatic” rejection of impregnation is just not established science. The problem is not the BASE he has— it’s the loss of potential fiscal conservatives social liberals votes, who will have a problem with this lack of understanding .

I really don’t think that any conservative women or rino women for that matter will not vote or vote for Obama just because of this man’s big mouth though. I really don’t think it is going to move the needle that much...especially if we just ignore the whole thing and make sure the rest of our candidates are prepared to answer the Akin question and pivot it right back to the dems. Like why do dems protect the rapists at Planned Parenthood? Etc.etc.
