Bryan, what you don’t seem to understand is that the GOP is made up of cowards. They always cut and run in the face of criticism from the left. That is why the GOP can not be trusted in politics, war, or even a game of checkers. Members of that club would rather stab their own in the back than to stand up and fight for one of their own who screwed up. It would not matter if the GOP managed to get 70 seats in the Senate it will still find an excuse not to repeal Obamcare or reduce the size of government. How much longer are conservatives going to continue to fall victim to the GOP?

Yes, they are. But the Akins fiasco is NOT a good example to use. Akins managed to get Joe Biden's stupidity off the front pages of the news cycle.

I don't know if you're paying attention to what is going on, but the only people who want this guy to stay in, are BEGGING for him to stay in, is the far left. This isn't a situation where the GOP capitulates to the left and removes a deserving conservative or allowing someone to get Borked, this is where a conservative FUBAR's things so badly that there's not repairing it, politically he's dead in the water and anyone with an ounce of political savvy understand that. The GOP doesn't want him out because he's "conservative", they want him out because he's going to cost them what should have been an easy pickup seat in the Senate.
Why do you think McCaskill was funding this guy, spending $2 million in advertising to help him win the primary? She saw a chump early on and said screw it, the Democrats would LOVE to see this guy stay all the way through, its an easy pickup for them.
Christine O'Donnell's "I'm not a witch" was pretty bad, but Akin's comments were several levels above that. Not only that, now you have every GOP candidate, even here in Arizona being asked "so what do you think legitimate rape is??" So instead of talking about the economy and going on the offensive, we're walking through sandtraps talking about "real rape" vs "fake rape."
