#MOSen: moved the race to Likely Democrat. As long as Akin is running, it is unwinnable for Republicans. If he exits, it's back to Toss Up.

You do you have to give credit to McCaskill and the Democrats for picking their opponent and just watching for Akin to blow up.

A: Twitter isn’t a source.
B: Why don’t Twitards speak real English?

Legitimate candidates don’t do this. I, personally, have no personal knowledge of legitimate candidates behaving so.

What goes around comes around. I’m sure we can find some Democrat running in a primary somewhere who makes Al Franken seem stable by comparison. And we’re gonna make sure he has the biggest Primary war chest EVER!

Considering how low down and dirty the dems are, it would not surprise me if Akin has received threats by the democraps / Chicago mob to not drop out. Stay in and stay healthy.

Twitter is a new media source. Short and to the point.

Well on a positive note, the lastest PPP poll has Scott Brown leading Elizabeth Warren by 5 points. This senate seat was widely favored to flip back to the Democrats so if Brown's lead holds, it will neutralize the Missouri train wreck and put us back where we were with respect to taking the senate back.

If you think the damage is limited to Missouri Senate, think again. This kind of crap is already out there . . .

We need to pick up 3 seats to get to 50. VP Ryan would serve as the 51st vote to repeal Ocare. We should be able to get the seats we need from N. Dakota (Dorgan), Nebraska (Nelson), Mass (Brown). Connie Mack is up in Florida. I still don’t see a problem.

Silver lining-by staying in the democrats can expend their energy on Ryan rather than finding a new target.

Brown is not pick up, and I’m still not convinced he will win, Massachusetts voters and all.

More likely they have dirt on him that they’re threatening to release, maybe he likes bathrooms in the same fashion as Larry Craig did, who knows, in anycase, if they do, they’ll only hold off until the 25th of September has passed and then they’ll unload everything into him.

At this point, he’ll do very well to lose by less than 15 points.
