The GOP looks for any excuse to oppose Conservatives, everybody knows this including Akin.
Akin gave them a tiny crack and that is all the Liberal power brokers in the GOP needed to justify lynching him, he should have known better given the boldness of the Liberal Elites in the GOP since the Tea Party scared them in 2010.
If one views the actions of the GOP Leadership with the assumption that they would prefer an Extremist Liberal Democrat to win a Congressional seat than a Conservative Republican then everything they do and say makes perfect sense.
The Establishment GOP is nothing if not consistent and predictable.
The day Conservatives decide to quit lying to themselves by believing they can someday have a seat at the table in the GOP and start their own Party will be the day America will have a genuine Conservative option on election day.
Until then it is pointless to get frustrated over things that should be expected by everyone at this point, Conservatives are despised by the East Coast, Blue Blood Liberals and they have made NO effort to hide that since November 2010.
