I am sincerely hoping he does so, vile worm that he is

Ruffini says that Akin can withdraw from the race prior to Tuesday August 21st at 5:00 p.m.

His analysis is based on Section 115.359.1 of the Missouri Revised Statutes:

Then the Republican aim to take over the senate will just get a whole lot harder.

As Nate Silver Notes

In my review of Senate races last week, I classified Representative Todd Akin of Missouri, who won the Republican primary earlier this month, as a very slight favorite over the Democratic incumbent in the state, Claire McCaskill.

Nevertheless, my view is that insensitive comments concerning rape are especially likely to be deemed inexcusable by voters, and that the swing against Mr. Akin could be larger than the average of 10 percentage points from similar events.

Since when did insensitive start meaning completely idiotic?
“If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

~Todd Aikin

The man is a star, he must stay, hold on for another 48 hour Todd because it is only going to get worse after you try and weasel out of your mind boggling stupidity.

Conservatives are having a meltdown over this liability to the cause, I really would enjoy extending their obvious discomfort.

Even the Freepers are split and RedStaters are in a tizzy.

So let us help Todd Akin through the next 48 hours and then he can disappear forever, why give the GOP a second bite at Claire McCaskill?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
