Seriously, think about it

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) echoes National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn, stopping short of telling Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) to drop his Senate bid but delivering a strong push:

"Congressman Akin’s comments were totally inexcusable.  What he said is just flat wrong in addition to being wildly offensive to any victim of sexual abuse.  Although Representative Akin has apologized, I believe he should take time with his family to consider whether this statement will prevent him from effectively representing our party in this critical election."
