Mark Levin: Akin Staying In Would Be a "Mistake"

Mark Levin is a tough loss for Akin, obviously.

He's highly influential (Rush respects him) and he'd be the sort of guy you'd usually expect to defend Akin. He scolds the Democrats for hypocrisy, but at 6:35 he calls it a mistake for Akin to stay in the race. He also reminds Akin that "there's just too damn much at stake."

I know this is a rush to judgment here, but as it turns out, the calender compels a rush to judgement: Tomorrow is the last day upon which a candidate may withdraw cleanly, without having to seek a judge's agreement.

I look at it like this: We are playing a single game to determine the future, the fate, of the United States of America.

Either you are good at this game or you are not. We're looking for pitchers that get a lot of strikeouts, not ones that give up a lot of towering, cloud-f***ing homeruns that land somewhere out in the boondocks of parking lot section 19D.

I don't see how else you can look at it. People keep saying "This is the most important election ever" and then behave as if it's all a lark, it's all a laugh.

This is deadly goddamned serious business. This is the country we're talking about.

If you're not good at this game, I don't care if you're a good, decent man down inside, because this isn't about one man, whether he's good or decent or not.

I don't care if a bad pitcher is a good man. I need good pitchers. You win with good pitchers, not bad ones.

And you look it at that way.

This isn't about Akin; this is about everything. It is about whether we will restore a democratic republic or slide further into socialistic tyranny.

No sentimentality here. It's not like Akin ceases to exist on earth if he steps out of the race.

This isn't about Akin. It's about us, and our children, and our children's children, and about whether America will be both the once and future last best hope for freedom and justice on earth.

"Providential:" A source says he's not dropping out because he views this race as "providential."
