In Missouri, they say, "You have to show me." Todd Akin (pictured) "showed them," all right. Now he's the third Tea Party man to be contending for the Senate. He joins Richard Mourdock of Indiana and Ted Cruz of Texas.

Claire McCaskill might have egged the Republicans on. They ran an ad that gave Akin some back-handed compliments.

And now the establishment has to take notice. Ted Cruz will get to speak at the Republican National Convention later this month.

    His opponent, Claire McCaskill (D) won by more than 400,000 votes. In Missouri, we call that a Mississippi landslide. Bye bye Akin, you miserable, deluded POS.

    Actually all three Brunner, Steelman and Akin had tea party backing. to tell you the truth it didnt matter which one won the election. Anyone one of the can beat Mc Caskill hands down.

    But from what I hear, Akin would best articulate the shrinking-government position among the three.

    We'll see how this turns out for Tea Baggers - the more extreme the candidates the more likely they lose in a general election assuming they're in a truly purple district. Missouri is a bible belt state with it's share of very conservative (and worse) thinkers but even this state should have some real issues with Akin and his whacky beliefs.

    "In Missouri, they say, "You have to show me."
    Why? What don't they get ? What is the comprehension problem in Missouri compared to the rest the world?
    Do they not understand anything they can't see?

    It's not like he won the seat yet. Not to mention it's Missouri. It seems like the Tea Party is winning in already red states. McCain won Missouri, Texas, and Indiana, yet he still lost the election.

    Again, if this was to happen in New York or Illinois, then I'll start to sweat a little.

    Obamacare was the most watered down legislation I have ever heard of. Obama did not ram it down our throats. He campaigned on it and the senate and house approved it.

    Well I guess secret meetings excluding republicans, going against what the people wanted. Not to mention that not a single republican voted for that. Then you have the dems not reading a single word of the bill. This bill is far from watered down, there are all kinds of taxes and bs hidden in that peice of crap bill not to mention every single dem and the pres exemted themselves and the unions from it. That should tell you all you need to know about how they really feel about it.

    It was done Nacy closed and locked out the republican memebers of the commitee. I know they have their meeting but they are required to have all memeber present not just one party.

    The ryan plan wasn't even allowed to be debated by Pelosi. she tabled it just like Reid has done to ever republican backed bill in the senate. At least when the republicans gained control of the house the commitee meetings were held with both parties present.

    Unfortunately, Mr. Akin won in the Republican outstate Missouri vote, and with the extreme right views that too many attribute to the Tea Party. Too bad he didn't just stress his fiscal conservatism.
    Claire McCaskill has become such a terrible senator in her capitulation to the Obama WH that she could have been beaten by a slightly more moderate candidate. (She was a decent state auditor, but jumped on the Obama bandwagon far too soon.) I fear that this choice by Republicans may backfire and put Claire back in office.

    Seems like a stand up sort of guy. To be honest I don't know enough about him to say one way or another. I don't agree with all of his positions, but there are very few politicians out there that I DO completely agree with.
    So, good luck to you Mr. Akin.

    ...Because the Missouri electorate will reject him and weaken the Tea Party cause (whatever that is) further.



    You look at the congressional elections the only voters who turned out were Palin supporting nutters who managed to get Tea Party people in congress in extremely small district seats with little opposition turnout. They get in congress, hold America hostage over the debt ceiling say no to every bill put in front of them that their bankrollers don't approve of then expect America to fall in love with them.



    I don't comment on these tea party candidates individually because their supporters are people who would have a 1 term Alaskan governor with no intelligence or record as their VP/POTUS which says all that's needed to be said about them.

    For the record one of Akins opponents, Sarah Steelman, had direct support from Sarah Palin. That includes a number of high profile tv and radio spots. Yet she lost to Akin who didn't have the same support.

    Just saying you may want to have some facts and details before you start tossing the Palin mud around.
