Sen. Claire McCaskill is the latest on Capitol Hill to announce support for same-sex marriage.

Mrs. McCaskill, Missouri Democrat, put on her Tumblr page on Sunday: I have come to the conclusion that our government should not limit the right to marry based on who you love. While churches should never be required to conduct marriages outside of their religious beliefs, neither should the government tell people who they have a right to marry.

. . . neither should the government tell people who they have a right to marry.”

Dear Claire:

Is this right absolute? Does it include your 9 year old cousin? A harem of 60? Or your horse?

We had our chance to get rid of this idiot, unfortunately the Huckabee wing of the party insisted on Akin - even when it was completely obvious he should step aside because he had no chance to win. The real Tea Party candidate, Sarah Steelman, would have almost certainly won this race.

We should wait until a situation like those you mentioned, comes up, and then see how it is dealt with.

With any kind of support, Akin might have won. Once the GOP elite wing cut him off and hung him out to dry, no replacement had a chance.

The voters of Missouri had a choice between an idiot and a lying criminal idiot. They chose the lying criminal idiot.

I trust all the Independents and Republicans who did not vote against her are happy.

Ultra poor quality video but it exposes the SSAD crowds preoccupation with sex and the fact they must recruit.

We have not fought hard enough against the SSAD cancer in society.

Oh thank you so much Tod Akin. There is a picture of you in the dictionary next to the word, “self-centered.”

Marriage is NOT a right. Marriage is a rite. It is a ritual. IT IS NOT A RIGHT.

If you look at the marriage age in Missouri (14 with parents permission), can a 23 y/o male marry a 14 y/o boy, Clare?

If not, and a male can marry a female who is a teen, isn't that DISCRIMINATION??

Damn.

Sorry, no. All the money in the world wouldn't save an idiot too stupid to take the rape exception question bait from the MSM. There are too many dumb, low information voters among the electorate to overlook a gaffe that serious. Look what happened in Indiana to Murdouck. Provide the MSM with the requisite sound byte and it instantly becomes the only issue in the election.

Anyone who can't figure that out shouldn't be running for political office above the county level.

The other side of it, and what I was arguing, was that the GOP handling of it doomed the seat as much or more than anything he did. To the misinformation voter, hearing that both sides don’t like the guy kills him.

It's a catch-22, because if the GOP had rallied around him, there would have been more collateral damage elsewhere.

We probably lost close senate seats in North Dakota and Montana as a result of Aikin and Murdouck's collateral damage.

I won't say it made a difference in the outcome at the top of the ticket but Florida, at least, was close enough to have swung the other way without these idiots taking the rape exception bait.

Is that really the law? I think that’s creepy even between a man and a girl.

I think it is 16 in Missouri, but in some states it is 14...(with parents permission)
