As long as she's not replaced by a RINO. An effective RINO can be more destructive and difficult to dislodge than an ineffective and obvious moron, out to lunch, loony Democrat such as Boxer or Franken.

LOL. Payback is a b&#%h. She carried the most water for him. Always had her kneepads at the ready for her master. All of zero’s staunch early supporters are going to go down with the SS Rat.

Ah, is this the same McCaskill that had you and I pay for her executive airplane trips (about 90 of them), and at the same time, evaded a quarter of a mil on taxes on the same aircraft?

Just more "honest" mistakes made by Dems who seem to feel divinely exempt from ethical behavior and unbridled by the tax laws they impose on everyone else.

Get your DU account now. Save it for election night.

They are such cowards, they will shut it down once they realize they are going down (as Barack-olie would say) and THEY ARE GOING DOWN ALL THE WAY !!!

Infact, get a couple of accounts so you can make appropriate remarks on election night - and then when you are banned, you can go in under another name !

And speaking of MJF, I heard that he's finally realized that embryonic stem cell research is a dead end, whereas adult stem cells offer much more promise.

I wonder what's become of all the Rats he helped elect into office, like McCaskill, 6 years ago because they wouldn't back embryonic stem cell research?

Such beautiful music to my ears, I could cry! That witch fooled MO by telling everyone she was all about small home town values and people. Her ads used to make me sick. Thankfully, no sooner did she take office and everyone realized the mistake they had made. The polls are showing it and I will be very happy to see her go. Just wish she would get a swift kick in the @$$ on the way out.

Rep Todd Akin, John Brunner and Sarah Steelman are all solid conservatives. Akin is the most knowledgable but Steelman might have a gender advantage against McCaskill. Brunner is a businessman and a newcomer to politics - has been running lots of TV ads. I think the TP could endorse any of the three.

Doesn’t matter now. He got McCaskill and Cardin into office (convinced all the blacks to vote for the old white guy instead of the black guy, Michael Steele) and that was his goal.

There are three: Todd Akin, Sarah Steelman, and John Brunner, probably in that order of likelihood of winning the nomination. Akin is my congressman, and I think he's probably got the best chance of beating McCaskill.

She is a crook...she and her husband took OVER $3 million in "Stimulus" money for their section 8 housing projects.

I like Brunner...a REAL conservative and a successful businessman.

Steelman will probably get the nod, even though there are rumors of her and Lacy Clay (D-MO) having had a "romance".

Akin is a fine man. But Steelman is always up higher (1-3 pts.) in most polls I’ve seen, over Ma McCaskill.

It’s amazing how polls are so accurate all of a sudden. We have gone from Polls are trash and dishonest to polls are the best things around. I will wait and see until November. November is a long time away. Although I don’t see Clair winning her seat, some of these polls I don’t believe so much.

Akin is a solid convervative. He is also a long time home schooler. See link for a good article on him.

Unfortunately Boxer has been in the Senate since the early 90’s. Never underestimate the stupididy of the American electorate.

That was an excellent article. I am glad to get the information. Most homeschoolers are conservative on other issues like abortion and gay marriage. I do not automatically go for the Tea Party candidate. They have made mistakes before. Alot of them went for Ron Paul and that to me was very short-sighted and stupid. And, Steelman is not my favorite. I think she acts a little too affected for my tastes. This isn’t a movie role the candidates are trying out for and her appearances on TV have seemed very TVish to me. I have liked Akin all along even though I am not in his district. He is a good family man and we need good people to represent Missouri in DC.
