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.
