I don't mean to harp ...

... but maybe the GOP should have at least counted to ten:

A new poll paid for by the Family Research Council, a pro-life group, indicates pro-life Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin now leads pro-abortion Sen. Clair McCaskill in the race despite the controversial comments he made about abortion and rape.

Now, I know that on the face of Akin's comment, it was ripe for misinterpretation. That said, given that the media and Leftists (BIRM) will try to misinterpret anything a Republican says the GOP should have had that fact as their guiding principle ... NOT how the media was going to portray Akin and how he would be perceived.

Now a poll that indicates that Akin leads McCaskill. Granted the internals of the poll are a bit suspect (but not to the level of campaign internal poll) but it does make the point that maybe the GOP has miscalculated.

And if they insist they won't help Akin no matter what, then I suggest that if Akin wins, he needs to have a little sit down with Reince Priebus and Mitch McConnell and let them know that in response to the shunning and brow-beating, he would return the favor by opposing every rule change and political manipulation that the GOP supported as long as he was in the senate.
