DUNCE: Rep. Joe Walsh 'bothered' by no one defending Akin

There isn't one person of significance who has gone on the record to defend Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) since his "legitimate rape" comment Sunday. But then there's Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) who came pretty close yesterday.

“Conservatives are often cowed by the media, and there clearly is a double standard when folks on our side make an outrageous statement," Walsh said during a forum in Yorkville, Ill., according to the Beacon News. “I am bothered by this rush and silence from members in our own party to stand up for him,” Walsh added.

What's the opposite of "smart statement"?
