hopefully their coverage today will help Akin see the light and get OUT.

The media is just doing its job. The overall, strategic vision of the media is to do what it can to enhance liberal / democrat / Obama’s re-election chances.

What, you thought it was to share the news?

And Buzzfeed is reporting Akin campaign just made a 8-22 thru 8-27 ad buy.

If true he’s staying in.

Just Wow...

It’s been the top story hourly story on the local and national newsbreaks here in Maine too.

This will be the front page news mantra of the next few months and he will be pegged the poster child for the “Republican’s War On Women”. They’re probably making the ads now. This is no longer a statewide issue.

Its the “War on Woman” narrative brought back for an encore.

It is an idiotic phrase, but it is simple and easily repeated.

CNN is mild compared to the Non-Stop of MSNBC yesterday and today.

Democrats and liberals rally around misspeak. Republicans wash their hands and capitulate to liberal group think out of fear.

You can shoot up a Family Research Council office while holding a Chick-Fil-A bag and not get near the coverage.

Big deal!

CNN ratings are in the toilet. MSNBC isnt taken seriously.

NPR audience are left-wingers.

Let them hyperventilate.

Akin needs to get and wear one of those neck braces like Kennedy did after Chappaquiddick.

Well, they certainly didn’t cover the Chick-Fil-A revolution like this. Maybe this crazed coverage will convince the clueless candidate that he is a loser.

Akin could put his country ahead of his own ego and stop the bleeding, but he`s convinced his candidacy is “providential.”

So while he sits there in hiding, convinced God wants him to stay in the race, the ripples of his gaffe continue to grow wider.

“Dumb sluts” are media’s most profitable advertising demographic (and the Dems’ largest voting bloc) and this story is perfect for them.

However, like the Fluke tempest, it requires too much spin and repetition to maintain it.
They’re losing advertising dollars with this already.

By continuing to appear on TV and radio shows and putting out ads, Akin is keeping the story alive and extending it one more news cycle.
