AN OPEN LETTER TO TODD AKIN
Congratulations.You stood on principle even after making a foolish comment you thought would pass with an apology.You’ve held elective office for 24 years.You should have realized by now the media will set republicans up at every chance and when you do say anything the slightest bit controversial they will descend on you like a pack of ravening dogs.A sincere apology is only accepted by those with grace and civility in their souls.The democrat party has none.
Crossroads GPS pulled $5 million in ads they were going to run to help you and the RNC pulled their support,still you remain defiant.Your BFF,Mike Huckabee encouraged you to stay in,even though you went from 3 points up to 12 points down to the most reviled woman in Missouri.Remember it was Huckabee who stayed in the 2008 to split the evangelical vote with Romney until the establishment eunuch McStain prevailed.We all saw how that worked out.
You boast you’ve raised $100,000 since you took your principled stance.110K is pocket money in the high stakes contest we are now embroiled in.
There are plenty of Missourians who would never vote for AireClaire,but what you have done is dampen the enthusiasm of conservatives with your obstinance.Given the inherent vote fraud that regularly occurs in St. Louis and Kansas City,you have,in effect,handed a senate seat to the least-deserving liberal bootlick in the state.Additionally,you have quite probably foisted four more agonizing years of a vile-smelling maggot from Nevada as majority leader on our beloved land.You not only have condemned yourself,but you are dragging Romney down with you.
You’re for the sanctity of life.We get that.So are most of us on the right.But we must keep things in perspective and choose the hill we want to fight on.You have, unwittingly or not,done that for all of us.Perhaps you are satisfied being a martyr for your cause,but that will be cold comfort when a wretched piece of scum is grinning broadly at her victory party election night,knowing her seat was gift-wrapped and handed to her.
Thanks again,Todd.For nothing.
