“3-day news cycle and this story is over”
Not with the dems running the media. They, along with the DNC can keep this story alive as long as they find it useful to them.
I think Akin will step down eventually. But I don’t think it’s going to hurt as bad as people seem to believe. This is one race out of many others and STILL the most important thing is the economy. It might make a difference with SOME women (the idiots who would already vote for Obama) but otherwise I don’t see it being that bad.
