The Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri , Todd Akin, made a stupid statement on a talk show today regarding abortion in cases of rape. I’m not going to defend the statement. It was similar to Whoppi Goldberg’s rape-rape comment. He now has apologized.
Dana Loesch was almost alone is saying, hold on a second, give the guy some time to clarify and don’t hold him to a standard Democrats are not held to until that clarification comes. Which it has. Loesch also pointed out that making a stupid statement is not the same as Claire McCaskill tanking the economy and voting for Obamacare.
Now Loesch is the object of the left’s invective on Twitter, including from well-known execrable characters (also known as nutroots leading lights).
Really, I understand why the left seeks to take advanatge of screw-ups by our candidates, but can’t we give someone a little bit of time to apologize before we swarm too?
Must we form the circular firing squad within minutes without giving the candidate a chance to react himself, and hand the election to a woman who is a walking disaster for our nation?
