The Stupid Party

The GOP had one “sure thing” in the Senate this November and it was in Missouri. Sadly, our candidate in the Show Me State decided to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Sen. Claire McCaskill is the most vulnerable Democrat running. Any Republican who opposed her would be a shoo it. In fact, the Republican candidate barely needed to run. The GOP is about to blow it.

The GOP candidate, Todd Akin, was expected to easily defeat his Democratic candidate. A week ago McCaskill’s Intrade rating to win was at 15%. Yesterday it popped up to 60%. That is the price of stupidity.

This situation is urgent. Any scenario that involves the GOP retaking the Senate includes a win in Missouri. If the GOP loses there, it can kiss the Senate goodbye. Todd Akin, therefore, stepped on a national landmine.

Furthermore, today is the last day upon which a candidate may withdraw without complications including the need to seek a judge’s agreement. He needs to withdraw today.

Any hope of stopping Obama’s socialist Juggernaut hinges on holding our majority in the House, taking control of the Senate and winning the White House. We are going to have to draw aces for that to happen. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough aces in the deck for us to win as the Stupid Party.

Akin has to go and it has to be today.

    I don’t know. One part of me thinks he should step down. What a dumb asa thing to say.

    The other side remembers some of the outright discusting, anti American, out and out lies and bullshit that the democrats spew on a daily basis and think why do we always have to be so damn noble?.

    I would still prefer this guy in the Senate over McCaskill.

    I had to look up what he said —

    why is that the only people who run for office are complete dregs of society? people I would not let watch my dog for 15 minutes or anywhere near my wallet, yet they are given the power to write laws that enslave us?

    >>>I would still prefer this guy in the Senate over McCaskill.

    so would I. i actually understand where he is coming from. “legitimate rape” as oposed to the rape of convenience that some use as a weapon – feminists, people seeking revenge, women who regret the one nite stand, etc. i remember when that No means No thing came out, there were kids that joked if you looked at someone it’s rape. everything in liberal-land is completely distorted and misconstrued to out of context.

    He is idiot. Let’s get that out there up front. But the polls in Missouri have this race at a dead heat as of now. There is still a long way to go till the election. That means a lot of time to come back and spin good PR to take away the sting of his stupidity. It is a solid red state, and can still be had.

    The problem is that the left will see the blood in the water and money from out side groups will start to pour in. That and if his money dries up spells trouble. Have to wait and see.

    I do hate that I have to support this moron, but taking back Congress is bigger than one dummy.

  4. Jim22 says:

    Get over it. McCaskill has said even dumber things.

    Akin said something stupid and the left is demanding he drop out because of it. I don’t see why the right should pile on. I know it’s embarrassing but so what?

    Do you hear anyone on either side calling for Joe Biden to step down?

    • R.D. Walker says:

      I don’t know that just the left is disgusted with the guy. I am also pretty disgusted with this sort of semi-retarded, know nothingism. I would have a hard time voting for him.

      • R.D. Walker says:

        Furthermore, we don’t need the distraction. The last thing we need to be talking about in this election is rape and abortion. This is it just put these items back on the table. I can’t wait for 3 hours of debate in which we talk about rape and birth control. This was a giant gift to the Democrats wrapped up with a bow.

  5. Jim22 says:

    We don’t need the distraction but we have it. You don’t have to vote for him. It wasn’t a gift to the Dems. It was a stupid comment and they’re using it to distract from the discussion of the economy and Obama’s record.

    I say we don’t pile on with the left. We should ignore the dimwit and point all our energy at defeating Obama and the Democrats.

  6. Roy Ryder says:

    Akin is damaged goods and he will be an albatross around the neck of every Republican senator for the length of his term. If by some miracle he gets elected it will be a case of winning the battle but losing the war. That being said, Jim22 is right – ignore the left and focus on defeating the albatross around America’s neck: Obama.

  7. serfer62 says:

    Blame the GOP not the results.

    If this was a “closed” primary, this would not have happenned. This is how The Establishments gets their guy…ie dole, mcnasty etc, on the ballot

  8. Uke says:

    Every day that he stays in the race is a day that the American people is distracted by a stupid issue, instead of being focused on the economy, debt, and the future of this country.

    Wild prediction: Because this guy stays in, we get distracted, GOP loses voter intensity/turnout (which it so BADLY needs), they lose the election, and we forever lose our country.

    There. My cynical moment of the day.

  9. notamobster says:

    The guy said something incredibly stupid. So has Joe Biden and a thousand other politicians.

    Things would be better if he dropped out, but only marginally – as far as this being a talking point. It’s out there. The liberals will ride this into the ground. It’s silly to think it’ll just go away if he drops out.

    What are the chances that he can still pull it off, if he stays in?

    Before anyone says anything about wanting/expecting more from our elected officials – I’m undecided as to whether he should stay or go.

    Mostly so, because I don’t know if there is ANY chance of taking McCaskill’s seat, without him in the race.

    I’ll take a 45% chance over 0%, any day of the week.

    Anyone know the likelihood of getting a contender in his place?

  10. late4life says:

    He could make a “I’m not a Warlock”video

  11. MadBrad says:

    He looks like the guy who played Adlai Stevenson in 13 Days.

  12. notamobster says:

    Apparently the DNC knew Akin was a dumbass!

    There’s a reason why Democrats spent over $1.5 million trying to help Akin win his three-way primary. He was the most conservative candidate in the field — and the most unpredictable one. He shook up his campaign staff late last year. He recently released a head-scratching and jumbled campaign ad. And Democrats have already launched a microsite highlighting his controversial statements that won’t play well with moderates. (“America has got the equivalent of the stage III cancer of socialism because the federal government is tampering in all kinds of stuff it has no business tampering in,” Akin once said.)

    They donated because they knew he’d f-k up. Pretty clever move.

  13. R.D. Walker says:

    There are plenty of people who could have taken his place. John Ashcroft was one name floated. There are also the two he beat in the primary.

    Speaking of the primary, you all know the Missouri Democratic Party spent $2 million supporting Todd Akin during the primary, right? Why would the Democrats spend money to support a Republican during the primary? Because they knew he was an idiot who would say shit like this. They knew he was the easiest to beat.

    Spare me the argument that “the other guys say dumb shit too.” We are supposed to be better than those idiots. So fuck that. Akin is an idiot. He could have done the right thing and got out. He is an anchor around our necks. I owe morons no loyalty because of party label.

    If this shit costs us the Senate, Akin better never show his Skelator face in public again.

  14. R.D. Walker says:

    Just beat me to it by three mintues Nota.

  15. R.D. Walker says:

    By all fucking means. Let’s stand behind the idiot who couldn’t answer the question every damned pro-life candidate has been asked since 1973. By all means, let’s stand behind the man who might cost us the Senate. By all means, let’s stand behind the man who will cause Obamacare to be tattooed on the soul of America. By all means, let’s stand behind a man who is so politically illiterate and so out of touch with American culture he would use the phrase “legitimate rape” in public discourse. Yeah boy. God bless the fucking GOP.

    Congratulations to Senator McCaskill on securing herself a second term.

  16. notamobster says:

    Yeah, I’ve been reading since I posted my top comment. I don’t support dumbasses. If there are other actual contenders, he should drop out.

  17. R.D. Walker says:

    He has an hour and 25 minutes to do so. Then the law makes it hard to replace him.

  18. R.D. Walker says:

    By the way, fuck Akin and fuck all politicians they are just pawns. Checkers, actually.

    I am teaching the boy to play checkers. If you can force your opponent to jump you, you can sometimes force him to set you for to a multiple jump and a crowing. That is a good sacrifice of a checker.

    Here is what you don’t do. You don’t get all fucking weepy about the checker you sacrifice. You don’t talk about loyalty to the checker. You don’t give the sacrificed checker the right to decide if it is to be jumped.

    There is a name for that sort of thing: losing. We should be in this to win because losing means really losing big. Whether or not we end up with the USSA is riding on this.
