So the 71% of the MO voters who voted against Obamacare will vote to reelect the senator who voted FOR Obamacare

I think that you may be assuming that voters are rational and think through how they vote. Many do no such thing, they vote on emotion and those emotion change like the wind. Claire is portraying Akin as a lunatic who will ruin their lives. The emotional ones are going to be very receptive to that argument.

If that is truly the case, i.e., voters will vote against their own self-interest and reelect someone who is inimical to how they stand politically, then the Republic is lost. We (they) deserve the government we have. It is time to start blaming the public for our current condition and not the politicians who just give them what they want.

If the people of MO are that stupid, then Obama will win easily in MO.

In the debate yesterday Claire showed herself to be that lunatic who would ruin their lives.
