"Everybody's going to find a reason to get their feelings hurt and get bent out of shape."

So the lesson is, just stop trying to not offend people. Who needs voters, right?

This means nothing but a good guffaw from his supporters. It only serves to add insult to injury. The injury is that republicans actually consider this buffoon electable.

538 has McCaskill with a +4.3 margin right now, with an 87% chance of winning. Still, I'll agree, that 13% chance for Akin is rather sickening.

I just usually post a random message with their name in it that they are awesome. Since this is a dog thread, tellingthem is more awesome than a Saint Bernard who are the most awesome of all dogs (other than mine who is a Jackabee).

Also, there is still enough of a chance that Akin will win. We are getting further away from the incident that he might be hoping that voters just forget and click the "whole party" ticket option (if Missouri has one) or just go through and check all Repub boxes. It's not like the thing will be listed as on his ballot choice. It's sad/scary, but could happen if people aren't careful.

You really think the Democrats should look at races like this and get as many women up for election as they can, particularly where the Republican candidate is this sort of Tea Party retard - because the only way they know how to win in politics is to spend the entire election insulting the opponent, and when that is a women it just can't help but alienate a large chunk of what should be their voters when they can't hide their misogyny.

Speaking of Akin (which means we're also talking about abortion and rape), I have a question: When a candidate says that he's against abortion except in cases of rape, doesn't that mean that his personal belief isn't that solid? I mean, if you genuinely believe that abortion is murder, then aborting even a rape-fetus is still murder, right? And murder trumps rape.

I guess what I'm saying is that at least these wingnut assholes are consistent in their belief. If you believe that murder is OK in certain circumstances, how strong can your anti-abortion stance really be?

Aside from said cities, we're 1 part KS, 1 part Arkansas, and 1 part inbred. (Several years ago, a study was done, and the county with the highest percentage of inbred resident was in south Missouri. Same county was also the last county to get telephone lines installed for all residents, in the 1960's)

A long time ago in a thread far away, some Farker once typed this:

I think it is probably more true that they don't want abortions in the case of rape either, however, it is politically non-viable to pursue such a platform. Forcing a woman to carry to term a child that was forced upon her is just not an electable platform.

Yes. A fetus is a fetus regardless of how it was conceived. A fetus is not responsible for the circumstances of its conception, and a fetus conceived through rape is just as innocent and equally alive as any other fetus.

Pro-lifers should be against ALL abortions, or else get off the can.

The people who say they only support abortion in cases of rape really don't believe that. That's why there's such an effort to define "legitimate" or "forcible" rape, to claim that women have anti-sperm ovarian rape missiles, or that modern medicine is advanced enough that women and children don't die in childbirth anymore.

LucklessWonder: Girth of population?

Or perhaps greatest number of racists?


I guess you could also make the case for greatest concentration of rape enthusiasts if Aiken gets any more than 20% of the vote.

DROxINxTHExWIND: Empty Matchbook: FlashHarry: how can a state that is home to two of america's greatest cities be a gnat's eyebrow away from electing this misogynistic piece of garbage?

Same way California can ban gay marriage and uphold marijuana being titanically criminal: everything outside those cities.

All pot smokers aren't gay.

/Point is, there are things that "liberals" agree on but we're not really in lock-step on all issues, as it is portrayed.


And there are massive pockets of conservatism even in so-called "New Babylon."

Anything to stick it to the libs, amiright? Even if it's an ignorant caveman on the science committee.

Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Sorry, Fox News fan club, but no amount of blind devotion will make up for the fact that guys like Todd Akin simply don't have the grapes for long careers on the national stage.

BeatrixK: Aside from said cities, we're 1 part KS, 1 part Arkansas, and 1 part inbred. (Several years ago, a study was done, and the county with the highest percentage of inbred resident was in south Missouri. Same county was also the last county to get telephone lines installed for all residents, in the 1960's)


Not so much the Kansas. Outside KC/StL/CoMo, it's three parts Arkansas all the way to the Iowa line. Unlike the East, where the Mason-Dixon line came along after the fact (so the lines aren't quite as sharp), the lines of Missourah and "Yankee Outpost" (Iowa/Nebraska/Kansas) were drawn before there were many actual people on the ground.

That's the map for percentage of the population in each county responding that they are Southern Baptists.

Friends of mine in Iowa liked to say if the southern tier of counties seceded and joined Missouri the average intelligence of both states would rise.

I am almost to the pint where i must wonder if Akin realizes his campaign is doomed and is just trolling now to see how few votes he gets.

He could just be delusional.

doesn't matter which is the case at this point far too late to mount an effective write in campaign in the time left until election day.

No, he doesn't hate women. Not at all.
That has to be why he married a man, right?

Tigger: When someone says 'Greatest City' I think of places like New York, Paris, London, Tokyo or some such.

I'd be naming cities for a farking week before I go to 'St Louis'.


London for Olympics. Perth, W.A. if there's a zombie apocalypse. Las Vegas for blackjack and hookers. Marseilles, France for sun and sand. St. Louis? The last big thing out of there was iced tea in 1904.

What the fark? Did you just declare Missouri, St. Louis and Kansas City to be great? The only redeeming thing in that group is Kansas City BBQ.


Have I told you to eat shiat lately? I honestly feel any time you speak and other liberals don't tell you to eat shiat makes the rest of us look bad. Eat shiat.

You're thinking of Montana. No, Montana has no cities to speak of.

They're butt-hurt over a Republican sabotaging his own campaign?

The Onion is prophetic: Still, I'll agree, that 13% chance for Akin is rather sickening.


Spend some time in southern Missourah and you'll be farking amazed it's only 13%.
 
2012-10-23 12:46:18 AM
Scary to think that this guy isn't polling at about 8% by now.

His point is that liberals in his imagination are just as bad as Akin in reality.
No, really. Stop laughing. That's his actual point.

dickfreckle: Speaking of Akin (which means we're also talking about abortion and rape), I have a question: When a candidate says that he's against abortion except in cases of rape, doesn't that mean that his personal belief isn't that solid? I mean, if you genuinely believe that abortion is murder, then aborting even a rape-fetus is still murder, right? And murder trumps rape.

I guess what I'm saying is that at least these wingnut assholes are consistent in their belief. If you believe that murder is OK in certain circumstances, how strong can your anti-abortion stance really be?

/I am NOT complimenting these guys - just pointing something that I've always wondered about


You're right. Unfortunately if pro-lifers think about it then they try to square the circle, by believing (for example) that rape doesn't get women pregnant.

Under the same reasoning, since both nonmarital sex and contraception use are MUCH smaller sins than murder (or may not be sins at all, depending on one's particular doctrine) then pro-lifers, to be consistent, should be supporting free contraception for everyone, to cut down on the murders. (They could view that as a temporary stop on the way to their apparent ideal of sex being for procreation only).

Akin, stop farking talking. Dear lord.
