A Two-Fer: Someone should ask Romney whether he agrees with Missouri's (Original Post) coalition_unwilling Aug 2012 OP
Ask him if there's such a thing as "legitimate rape," too, while they're at it BeyondGeography Aug 2012 #1

Akin loose would negate any advantage the Ryan pick procured. Alternately, sticking with Akin would cost Romney big-time among women. That would create an opening big enough to drive a Mack truck through.

Holy Shit! This could be the LBJ-Goldwater moment I've been expecting for some time.

"When everyone picked their jaws off the floor, Akin's profoundly, demonstrably, scientifically wrong statement was met with a DefCon Katrina level of outrage. At what point is low too low? At a time that demanded true leadership, Mitt Romney's campaign's response was so milquetoast that Fire Island twinks would tell him to butch up."
