... may I remind all readers that dim Todd Akin wafted to the Republican nomination to run for the Senate from the State of Missouri on a sea of Democrat money? They knew that their nominee, incumbent Claire McCaskill, is such a weak candidate that she would lose even to a mediocre Republican. However, they knew how to take advantage of the Republicans' astoundingly foolish primary rules, which allow voters to choose to vote in any primary they choose.So they ran false ads claiming that Akin was a sound conservative, crossed over to vote in the Pachyderm Primary, and pushed this self-infatuated dodo to the finish line ahead of two more formidable candidates. Mission accomplished! They had found the one Republican who could lose to McCaskill, who like Patty Murray has to be carried across the finish line every election (or in this case have the race fixed for them to win).
I also would like to suggest that Republican anti-fraud monitors watch Akin's bank accounts and other repositories of wealth. I'd like to be sure that the Democrats aren't paying him to stay in the race.
