    Is there any outrage? I know it's not the same but Akin makes a stupid, ignorant remark all hell breaks loose. An anti-Romney remark by a 'reporter', not so much.

    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    One difference is that Chalian lost his job over his remark. Akin didn't give up his candidacy after his.

    There is not an intelligent comparison here on any level. Your comparison was expected.

    I didn't know a "candidacy" was a job.

    Your response is expected, and yawn-inducing.
