Richard Burr calls for Akin to step aside?

Even though Burr wants to institute the exact same prohibitions against abortion that Akin is proposing.

All these sanctimonious crocodile tears from Republicans like Richard Burr would be hilarious if they weren't so pathetic. Akin's only problem was his lack of judgment in telling the truth about what most Republicans today believe. Fortunately, no one gives a flip what Burr thinks about anything. Akin's in this race for good ... the new poster child for Republican extremism.
