King will do for himself NOT to broach the subject of rape, other than it's a heinous, evil crime which must be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
I'm no defender of Rove here, but Akin deep-sixed his own candidacy.
Same thing with Murdock of Indiana. Those two seats should be GOP controlled, not democrat !

Yep. Akin made his own bed. That was the single dumbest moment in modern political history, atl least on our side of the aisle. . It was not only offensive, but it was nonsensical. I usually will stand by our people when under attack, but in that case Akin absolutely should have bowed out. Any replacement would have won. He did a huge disservice to the whole party Huckabee and the rest should have stayed quiet. That was not a time to make a stand. It was not the people vs the establishment. It was a fatal candidate error that should have been corrected for the good of the party and the country.
