Todd Akin has stepped on his crank and made himself a liability. He needs to leave the stage. Period. End of Sentence. If he wants to run for something in 2014 or 2016, fine. Not 2012. Not anymore. Too much is at stake.
In a less crucial time, Bill Kristol would be right on target.
In today's zeitgeist, Mark Levin is the one who understands the urgency of the situation.
If Akin doesn't get the message, Sarah Palin has the right idea - run an insurgency candidate. And I don't care if Missouri law prevents it from being Sarah Steelman. Find any grass roots conservative ready to step into the breech. I don't care if it has to be Fozzie Bear.
Incidentally, when I did my quick Google image search in preparation for this post, the one that made me belly laugh utilized the great 'Red' Foreman to good effect.
The linked post appears to have been written by a Leftie, but funny is funny. And the point is Akin clownishly confirms all of their most cartoonish presumptions about conservatives. For this, he must disappear from the national scene, and the sooner the better.
Incidentally, back in 2010, this blog project utilized a measuring device dubbed the Conservative Ascendancy Thermotron, which consisted of a series of gauges designed to predict the force of the 2010 election. One of those gauges was 'GOP / TEA Party Alignment.' If GOP money (RNC, NRSCC, whatever) were to find its way into the hands of a insurgent alternative to the disavowed Akin, we might have to put our best engineers onto the task of designing a new and improved Thermotron for 2012.
My point, precisely. It's over for you in 2012, Todd. Wrap your brain around it, and do the honorable thing.
