Anatomy of a Meltdown
I know this happens all the time; the spinning and re-spinning of a political statement. But I've never seen it done so blantantly and so fruitlessly. It's fascinating how this blogger who backed Todd Akin goes from describing Akin's "legitimate rape" statement from "clumsy remark" to "misspoke" to "stupidity" to a sarcastic "No kidding" to damning him with a biblical quote. I'll give the blogger points for not removing his old posts denoting his backpedaling. But it's so interesting watching how he attempts to defend & justify the remark, then attempt to deflect the criticism with some sort of false equivalency with the dispised opponent, then starts posting the remarks of the GOP big-wigs demanding Akin quit without comment and finally denounces Atkin's plan to remain in the race as prideful. In the end, it's the underside of the bus for you, Rep. Akin.
As another conservative blogger would write, it's "delicious."
