Shame on You Todd Akin

leave a comment »

So the self-described conservative Todd Akin is clinging to his senate bid. Just like a Democrat. Shameful.

We conservatives hold ourselves to a higher standard. The Democrats have their Weiners, Rangels, Spitzers, Geithners, Bidens, and Clintons among others. Some left, some stayed, but none were told to hit the road by their party. All clung to their power as long as they could. All were shielded by their co-ideologues.

That's the difference between the parties. The Republicans enforce decency and the Democrats shield indecency. Todd Akin, isolated and alone, is clinging to power, country and party be damned.

Yes, he apologized, and well he should. But that doesn't excuse terminal stupidity, callousness, and lack of judgment. Qualities already plentiful in the senate, and no more of them needed.

Shame on you Todd Akin. You had the chance to retrieve some honor from your foolishness. Now, all you have – win or lose – is shame, ignominy, and ridicule. Go, before it's too late. But go, for God's sake, go.
