Yes... those comments by Akin and Mourdock were really stupid. And certainly DID help the Democrats win.

But politicians say stupid things all the time. The difference here is that when a Republican says something stupid, the media has a field day with it. They milk it for all it is worth. When a Democrat says something stupid, then it gets promptly forgotten or just chalked up to "being confused." Joe Biden is living proof of that.

If you doubt this... then just ask yourself why Jay Leno is still telling "stupid Dan Quayle" jokes 30 years after that election.

It's really not like Algore, John Kerry, or Barack Obama never said anything stupid. It's just about which stupid remarks they feel need to be drummed into ever voter.

There's a difference between not knowing the correct spelling of 'potato' or whatever it was with Dan Quayle, and suggesting a raped woman should be thrilled to carry the baby caused by her rapist, because its a gift from God.

One is saying something stupid, the other is thinking and believing something stupid, big difference.
