Akin, Quit Now...

I'm in Todd Akin's district and I sure hope he quits by 5 pm tonight.  At this point, it's selfish of him to even continue running.  I'm seeing some of the mega-big banners around town even still.  People do still support him here. I suppose there are a great many people who would still vote for him.  I'd have to consider it myself, being as how he's running against the Most Evil Claire McCaskill.  She'd be handing out condoms and teaching sex-ed to three-year-olds if she could have her say in it.  Of course this chick is going to say that she wants the democratic process to move forward as-is so she can have Akin as an opponent.  Sure, why not...

She actually might lose, though.  That's the thing.  Patrick and I were talking of it.  What would our district in Missouri appear like to outsiders if Todd Akin won?

The Republican Party is run by a bunch of nitwits here.  Remember a couple years back when that Norris fellow said that he had a degree from William Jewell College and all this other stuff, and he was found to be a total liar?  Party did nothing... and the guy was freaking ELECTED. 

Yes, I voted Democrat in that election.  It sure seems that the conservative vote is taken for granted.  The party can run some Mormon dude for President and I still get notes from the American Family Association about how I reallllllly need to vote for him.  A vote for him is a vote for "family values." 

Good grief.  I might just stay home.  I'm telling you, I have absolutely no clue what to think of all these crazy people who think I should vote for 'em.

  1. The Republican social agenda is pretty poor. If only they would stick to the economy and national security.. :(

    1. If only the Democrats would, too... and then let people vote on the individual social issues because guess what would happen then...

      Anyway. They have even legislated vegetables with all schoolkids' lunches. I am *serious.* You cannot get your lunch without vegetables anywhere in the country unless you buy them for $3.50 more as "a la carte" items.

      Crazy.

  2. I think this is the first human being that I am confident has a lower IQ than Snooki.

    1. I don't get the whole Snooki thing or why people watch Snooki. It might be one of those "I feel better about myself because at least I am not as bad as her" kinds of things that motivates the viewers. :/

  3. I don't get it either, I am just sad to see that a young, single girl is famous for leading the life or a drunken and free prostitute...and then gets to raise a child on top of it. You know how desperately I would have loved to have another child, and here this hot mess gets to have one. It's sad and wrong and the poor child will pay the price.

  4. that is my problem exactly. People are taking the conservative vote for granted. It's like if you are Christian, then you've vote for anything that has a Republican stamp on it. Well, I say think again... I can have my own mind and be Christian too.
