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.

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.

Term limits is used by those, who are bitter because they can't beat someone at the ballot box.

Like I said 1960 was a f***ing crazy election year. It's like everyone woke up and wondered "who the hell should I vote for?"
