She already backs a Todd, her husband. She got this right.
Akin deserves no apology. He's an arrogant nutcase obsessed with becoming senator without regard to cause or country.
Should Akin fail and the senate is lost, will his fanatical Freepers admit they were wrong? Nope. It'll be blamed on the "GOPe" or some Rovian conspiracy because Akin's so clearly blameless... just like Obama.
To me, Akin is an inspiration. People should not back down in the face of adversity even though fighting on against the odds seems hopeless at times. Akin is one of the few fighters in the D.C. apparatus that I can point to. Jesse Helms was another.
