Sorry, Akin lost this race all by himself. His arrogance and stupidity is what brought him down. He lost by double digits to a radical leftist in a conservative state that Romney won handily. I repeat: He lost it all by himself. Palin, Michelle Malkin, Levin and Rush (those dwatted RINO GOPEers!) all asked him to stand down as there were two other conservatives (every bit as conservative as Akin, just not as stupid and arrogant) who could have stepped in and easily won that race.
Fwiw, democrats stopped standing by Toricelli, Spitzer, and Weiner when it was obvious they couldn't win for their stupidity.........don't kid yourself, they like to win.......

This is a fair discussion, so the side you represent has a fair point. Was Akin’s statement so egregious that he would have lost even if his own side had fully supported him and poured in it’s normal financial support?
I say that level of support would have seen a victory by Akin. Why? Because politicians accused of far, far worse have gone on to win.
Therefore, it was the media feeding frenzy that sunk Akin and not the content of his words.

Not hardly. People are still piling on, and the election is over.
