Cook Political Calls Missouri For McCaskill – Declares Akin “Unelectable”

In four days Cook Political has moved the Missouri Senate race from “solid Republican” to “toss up” to “likely Democrat” to “unelectable”.

Cook Political Report has declared Todd Akin “unelectable” and moved the 2012 U.S. senate race in Missouri to a projected Democrat win.

Republican U.S. Rep. Todd Akin’s comment over the weekend about “legitimate rape” has rendered him unelectable in his bid against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.

No need to worry, Sir Todd. It’s but a flesh wound.

    Second vid down deserves to go viral. Let’s make it happen. We need to pull back the curtain on the Left – the true extremists – and expose them for their ugly, hateful, pro-Sharia (gotta love their “war on women” theme on this one!), pro-Occupy, Marxist….you get the picture….EXPOSE THEM AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN.

    We know Akin is an ass. Let’s move on and focus on the task ahead. Expose the truth about the left and win!

    Hopefully this poll was a knee jerk reaction, devoid of any serious thought, to Akin’s idiotic comment. The voters of Missouri are still faced with the same two choices they had before the Akin debacle. Vote for the candidate who made an incredibly stupid comment but which will have no effect on their lives now or in the future or vote for the candidate whose re-election could leave the Senate in Democrat hands thus ensuring that Obamacare will not be repealed in which case there will be a dramatically negative effect on the rest of their lives. As disgusting as Akin’s comments were, he is definitely the lesser of the two evils.

    As an Independent that has become consumed with an undying dislike for the Democratic Party, and who has vowed not to vote for the Democratic Party again in my life, I would NOT vote for this idiot.

    This is all fantastic news, don’t you see?

    Akin is the ultimate extreme right straw man that Romney/Ryan can run against. No matter what position they take, it will seem moderate compared to Akin.

    Meanwhile, Democrats will be forced to come out in favor of partial birth abortion, a truly heinous procedure. I mean, with PBA there can be no doubt that a murder of an innocent child is taking place.

    The result? Romney/Ryan come across as center/right on abortion and Obama/Biden come across as extreme left.

    Akin is the BEST thing that ever happened to us this cycle.

    ** And oh yeah, we’ll take the Senate anyway in the upcoming wave election.

    Wow Hoft – You’re going off the deep end on this one. Pretty close to hysterical there buddy. Normally I agree with you, but you really need to take a chill pill and take it down a few notches.

    A freakin whole page of bashing him only makes you look like a tool. You can make your point without being hysterical

    I think he’s a f*cking plant. From McCasket to the DNC, it just seems that they had everything ready to go for this. O’Dumbo trots out Fluke to speak, PP hag-in-charge is supposedly speaking, the whole convention seems it is all about reproductive rights. 24 hours after Akin opens his cakehole. And he’s pretty adamant about not stepping down, either. I normally wouldn’t subscibe to this type of theory, but we are not dealing politicians anymore. The Dem party has turned into subversive ideologs that have a lot to lose. Especially if someone with a set starts digging into everything this administration had done.

    This was a convenient out for the repugnantcans, maybe more so, as it was for commiecrats. Did anyone wonder they were so quick to try and get rid of him? Who was the first? That rino McLame? The reason the repugnantcans wanted to dump him is he is known as a maverick, someone who might not bend to the demands of the good old boys club. Or, perhaps, someone who might go to the press and tell the American people how enmeshed the two parties are, how many backroom deals they make, how they take care of themselves without worrying about the country. In other words, a possible trouble maker. Ask yourselves, is what he SAID worse than what Charlie Rangel DID. What Katy Sebilius DID? What Timboy Geithner DID? Is what he SAID worse than tax evasion, what Lurch Kerry and Yusef bin Biden say is a patriotic duty? I don’t think so.
