Some Republican or conservative business men need to step in here and donate a few million dollars to Akin’s campaign. The return on investment would be great if the GOP wins the Senate and lots of pro business legislation starts making it past Harry Reid’s dead zone.

The aid from the Senate Conservatives Fund follows Akin's endorsement Wednesday by DeMint and former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, whose Patriot Voices political action committee said it was contributing money to Akin and hiring staff to work in Missouri. The Freedom's Defense Fund, which backs conservative candidates, also said earlier this week that it planned a $250,000 advertising campaign benefiting Akin.

I am not only glad the Conservatives Fund has come to the aid of Akin, I have personally whacked my plastic to inject a few bucks into his campaign. I am NOT going to let the scumbags on the left, or the pantywaists in the RNC for that matter, dictate to me who my candidate is going to be!

I am from Pennsyltucky, but I’ll be dipped in $h!t if I’m going to let the effete snobs (to quote the late George Wallace) in the RNC tell me who I MUST vote for. That’s why I take an interest in what is happening in Missouri! My interests extend waaaaay beyond the borders of my own State, Pennsyltucky. If the Country goes down the tubes, what good did it do that I kept Pennsyltucky “Simon Pure”? It’s a farce! It’s a charade! If the rest of the Country goes into the dumper, so does Pennsylvania! That’s why I must give a hoot about EVERY other state!

Mr. Akin is a good man, and pro-life, so he is worth supporting. Which is why I whacked my plastic for him. If WE don’t support our good men.....or women.....who will?! That’s how our “purist” numbskulls cause us to lose one electtion after another. You never see the democRATS doing such silly stuff! Our candidates should have our support...come hell or high water!!! That’s where OUR PEOPLE drop the ball. They don’t REALLY support their own candidates! Sad. And pathetic. And STUPID, too!

Todd Akin will be a great Senator.

The RINO’s in Washington will regret turning their backs on him.

Go Todd!

Depressing scenario. Clair is to be defeated. Yet, GOP nominee is simply the worst we can field in a race. I do not want to see this buffoon in the Senate. Yet, I can’t live with Claire for another 6 years.

Akin should have stepped aside. He is a selfish and stupid.

WHAT are you talking about? This is a very good Conservative Pro-life candidate. Any of the three in the primary would have been an excellent Senator, and this is the one we chose. This is, incidentally a conservative, pro-life forum. Why bash a great candidate?

False, he is one of the few who has fought back when the grand poo-bahs told him to get lost.

“Mr. Akin is a good man, and pro-life, so he is worth supporting. Which is why I whacked my plastic for him.”

Well said, I did the same thing the moment “Republicans” started bad mouthing him. I am a Missouri resident, and actually voted for Steelman based upon Palin’s endorsement. However, after the way Steelman, et. Al. acted to capitalize on Akin’s mistake, I deeply regret having voted for her. I’m not sure I will ever listen to a Palin endorsement again. Whatever, I am backing Akin now. And have “whacked my plastic” three times since the dogpile started. I think Todd Akin will beat McRascal.

Bull feathers! The man said something incorrectly and the circling vultures came in for the kill. They always do, when a conservative misspeaks. Democrats can be caught with blood dripping from their fangs, and get a pass. Very few of their deeds are bad enough do disqualify a democrat. But, a Republican can misspell "potato[e]" and the whole left side of the country lands on him, kicking and screaming.

The only way to stop that crap is to stand up to them. I applaud Akin for doing so, win or lose. But I durned sure hope he wins.

The next thing he deserves plaudits for is resisting the GOP establishment! Screw 'em.

Thanks for providing an opportunity to give my opinion (again) on the subject.

I was furious when he stayed, but it is what it is. Have to support him now, and he is a good conservative. Just hope he can pull it off.

Agreed. Since he persisted and there is no one else, I will contribute and vote for Akin.

Brace yourself for the beginning of the McCaskill onslaught.

Akin MUST win. If he doesn't then we'll know who to blame.

Sir, I respect your views and strong emotions. I on the other hand, see a declining electoral map for the GOP, and Akins of the world contributing more to its shrinkage. We can live in a fantasy world, or start expanding our electoral map. The choice is at least still available. Blaming the media is not going to change a damn thing. As we all know.

Well, who knows. Even if he pulls it off, he will be a drag once he gets into the Senate. The MSM will invite him on TV all the time, and he will continue to make the GOP look like its from the dark ages of “idiocy”.

There is only one person responsible for the rape comments akin made and that is akin himself.

democrats and fools try to blame others for their own screwups.

“We can live in a fantasy world, or start expanding our electoral map.”

If I have to compromise my faith and values to “start expanding our electorial map”, then I’ NOT for expanding it. I try to work in harmony, as much as possible, with other viewpoints in the GOP. However, I will not compromise on basic principles that define me.

I have never been for a “Big Tent” view of the GOP. Big tents are only useful for a circus, and that is all you get with a big tent is a circus with no order or direction.

In my world view, if I have to vote for a person that is not pro-life or anti-homosexualism to get more people into the GOP, then I do not care to get more people into the GOP. That is just to bring in Dem think under the name of GOP in name only.

To have that big tent means we have to go to the mushy middle....were I don’t want our country to be.

I signed this petition asking Romney to dump Rove. BTW...Alan Keyes has endorsed Akin and wrote a scathing report on his treatment by the establishment.
Also, I read that the unions and pro choice pacs are going to give millions to Claire McCaskill. Most of her ads will be airing in St. Louis (ACORN COUNTRY) and in KC.
Here is the petition to dump Rove;
