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.
