Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

I think it is very possible that Vladimir Putin could be the Antichrist.  That is nothing more than an educated guess on my part.

When I started to be afraid of Akin winning this thing, he gives us this gift. Thanks, Mr. Akin.

This man is the living embodiment of what is wrong with the modern Republican Party. He served on the House Science committee. People like him need to be kicked out of office, again and again, until the Republican leadership AND electorate come to their senses.

I would say that maybe he was dropped on his head as a child, but given the context that seems rather crass...

Next he's going to say that he doesn't believe in evolution.

damn that's still an opinion held by many so akin can still win.

Conservatives are round holes. They cannot be expected to fit into a square hole right away. With exposure to facts, different environments and empathy they will modify into shape. If not, their children will. Conservatives defend the past and fight for the few. They are the virus that prevents progress.

How many members of Congress in safe seats are just like this but aren't called out until they run for statewide office in years unfavorable to their party?

If Akin were running in 2010, he'd have easily won election to the Senate, these comments notwithstanding.

I think McCaskill will win, but sadly Akin still has a very real chance of winning this race, especially with Obama dragging down the top of the ticket.

Oh. My. F**king. God.

Seriously, is he an undercover democrat agent, or what? He's doing literally everything he can to lose!

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Every time I think he won't make another gaffe, he does. I do agree that he still has a chance of winning though, maybe 20-30%.

I donated to McCaskill's campaign earlier this year (which will likely be a better bet than the money I gave Jon Huntsman). Do I give her more? I'm on the fence about whether she'll basically have this in the bag or not.

He is arguably the most idiotic and ill-informed Senate candidate I ever saw. He and Rick Santorum would have got along extremely well if he was in the Senate several years ago.

He is doing everything he can to lose what would otherwise be a pretty certain Republican gain.  Wish they'd nominated somebody like Sarah Steelman instead.  One of the few times I supported the same candidate Sarah Palin did.l
