Who are the conservatives?

In one corner with Todd Akin is … Mike Huckabee, Dr. James Dobson, Tony Perkins (Family Research Council), Don Wildmon (American Family Association), Judge Paul Pressler (architect of the conservative resurgence in the nation’s — and Missouri’s –largest Protestant denomination, the Southern Baptist Convention), Dick Bott (Bott Radio Network), 120 Missouri pastors/church leaders (there will likely be many, many more), Concerned Women for America, Missouri Eagle Forum, Missouri Right to Life, National Right to Life and the 217,000 Missourians who voted for the GOP primary winner fair and square.
In the other corner demanding Akin leave the race: John Danforth, the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Jim Talent, the Kansas City Star, Kit Bond, the Joplin Globe, Karl Rove, the cloners at Washington University, Roy Blunt, The New York Times and the so-called GOP establishment.
This bugs me: “Our rights come from nature and God,” both Romney and Ryan have said. No. Our rights come from “nature’s God.” Small words, huge difference.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
