    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%?

    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.

  • Dale

    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…

    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.

  • Mike

    I supported Brunner so I’m certainly disappointed in this result. It would have been nice to see another conservative Washington outsider in the mold of Rand Paul and Ron Johnson join the Senate. Having said that, I will fully support Akin as he has been a solid conservative and will be a great alternative to Air Claire. He was 100% opposed to the bailout non-sense and has been a vocal opponent of Obamacare. Let’s go Todd!!

  • Simsalabim

    Suddenly, I am disenfranchised. Brunner has been winning every poll and now he’s running third. I’m thinking these Repubs are as corrupt as the Dems.

    Since John Brunner is not the career politician that the established Repubs are wanting they cheated.

    Judicial Watch: White House Told GSA To Allow Occupy Protesters To Violate The Law

    Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained records from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) indicating that the General Services Administration (GSA), with the blessing of the Obama White House, instructed law enforcement officers to “stand down” and not arrest “Occupy Portland” protestors who were in violation of the law.

    The records, obtained pursuant to a November 11, 2011, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, include internal DHS correspondence. One November 6, 2011, e-mail exchange between DHS/National Protection and Programs Directorate Chief of Staff Caitlin Durkovich and GSA Public Buildings Service Commissioner Robert Peck (who has since been fired) specifically related to Occupy Portland protests taking place on federal property in Portland:[……]

    And tomorrow they’ll all be taken into that dark basement, shown obviously clandestinely-taken pictures of their spouses and loved ones in crosshairs, and become Instantly Compliant Communist Tools.

    I’m not cynical, am I?

    I just know what the Soviets did. And I know that the Soviets (and Maoists) are exactly who these people are trying to emulate, and even OUTDO.

    I’m thinking these Repubs are as corrupt as the Dems.

    You’re late, but welcome to the party. Have an Oberon Ale.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    The utter, abject fear that existed within the structures of government in the U.S.S.R., and in postwar East Germany, and in Mao’s 1958-’61 China (and beyond), and in every other populous, industrialized-society dictatorship in the last century was unimaginably great — and for good reason.

    We, the supposed amorphous TEA Partier-types who long for a return to the principles which made this nation great, can elect whomever we want.

    As soon as we do, they, unless they are fearless Marine bada**es like Col. West, will be made to fear and to submit, for the same reasons that anybody in Government Employ in those Evil Empires did. For their lives, for the lives of their loved ones.

    That Is Where We’re At, Now.™

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Scott Brown!

    What a powerhouse Conservative Constitutionalist FIGHTER!


    Keep dreaming, TEA Partiers. West is the only one (besides Sherriff Arapio, who holds no great office at all), and Sarah Palin, (ditto) who will tell the truth.

    If either of them ever made it to the halls of Congress or the White House, I believe it is likely that they would also be “turned”.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    I’m sure that most commenters here don’t quite fully understand what Power can do, especially this brand of Power.

    It should be evident to all, given that nobody in Congress of any particular leaning vis a vis the political spectrum, is doing jack squat about any of the almost unbelievable violations of law that have taken place in the last 6 or so years, nor are they doing anything at all about our nation’s obvious trend toward Communist dictatorship, nor are they doing anything at all about the looting of our treasury and national credit to the point of burdening our great-grandchildren to lives of virtual slavery.

    Maranatha. Come quickly, Lord.

  • rammer12

    I’ll go on record as saying Todd of all three candidates will have the toughest time against Claire in Nov. WHY? Because of her recent $850k ad buy she targeted AKIN the most. The Dem. machine wanted Akin and they got him served up nice and raw. Really, Akin and Air Claire against one another? There’s not enough contrast and Air Clare and the Dems KNOW they can pull out a squeaker against Akin if they LINE THINGS UP. They may be DEMS, but they aint no ellection night fools…

  • billy sol

    I voted for Bruner, but now that Akin is the candidate to unseat clairebear . . . .I work the polls, knock on doors, do whatever it takes to return the villiage idiot back to kirkwood! At last we shall have a carnahan free Missouri .. . .free at last. I am political poles apart from clay, but he’s consistent! no doubt represents his district well.

  • billy sol

    sarah . . .I have a gut feeling that you did not participate in the vote, so your opinion is not relevant!

  • billy sol

    Wagner . . .good choice! not in my district but if she was I would have voted for her!

  • I voted (as practically everyone I know) for Brunner. *sigh* but we will rally behind Akin.

  • Wally34

    I voted for Akin because I felt he was the strongest candidate to beat Obama boot licker McCaskill. It was so satisfying to see Russy Carnahan get trounced, even though it was obvious Carnahan didn’t have a chance against Clay. Let russy go work on the taxpayer funded Carnahan wind farm. Good riddence to the Carnahan dynasty. This puts an end to black people being beaten by Democrat union thugs, at least in Missouri.

  • Simsalabim

    Oberon Ale? I’ll have to check that out. Thanks T. I always enjoy your posts.
