    Thank you, Mr. Hoft, one good thing in this upside down, world.

  • Vicky Hernandez

    Well, hopefully they didn’t pick another RINO. However, whomever the GOP candidate is, may they beat McRascal! Missourians can take care of the RINO, later.

  • juandos

    Well bummer!

    I voted for Steelman…

    Still Todd Aikin is a good choice too…

    Top 2 runoff if under 50%?

    Oh whee, looks like the servers are overloaded with requests:

    Washington State also held a primary election today, results available tonight at 8pm (PDT)

  • FurryGuy

    BTW, WA is now a by-mail vote, thanks to both parties here that wanted to eliminate the secret ballot. All in the oxymoron of “saving money”.

    It was reported that there was only a 25% voter turnout expected (which boils my blood!)… anybody heard any different?

  • a bit of behind the scenes manipulation, perhaps?

    McCaskill et al wanted Akin; he has been wimpy and malleable.

    Brunner polled the highest against McCaskill, so it was quite odd that Palin endosed Steelman just in the past couple of days.

    The secy of state web site (showing county by county returns) is conveniently not functioning.

    The days of free and fair elections may be long gone.

    WTF??????????? Seriously, c’mon retarded Repubs, Sarah Palin endorsed Steelman, what the matter is wrong with you folks, what more do you need??? I seriously hope the Joplin disenfranchised voters and the 10,000 votes that Eric Holder has stolen will not throw the Senate election to the Dems this Nov!!!

    I haven’t been following these races. Anyone got the low down on the various candidates, i.e. who’s good and who’s not? If so, please share…

    Damn right.

    Praying for Art Coday.

    All we retarded conservatives want is McCaskill gone.

    Then, we come after your pension and put you in a nice ol’ 401K plan. Plus, force you to contribute to your medical plan. Have a nice night. Dream about Wisconsin.

    OT…Urgent Breaking News..latest attack on Romney

    Romney’s dad was given lifetime pass, for a free meal at McDnalds, from founder Ray Kroc


    I’ve heard of shooting blanks, but……Libs are taking desperation to a new level

  • Nelle

    Steelman, Akin and Brunner are all conservatives. Akin has been around a long time and I’m sure McCaskill is well prepared with a cascade of lies and insinuations to unleash. But I think we can get behind Akin and put Air Claire out of business.
