What a selfish pig. This could have been a GOP gain if Akin had withdrew from the race after his stupid remarks on race.

I believe that Senate candidates should know a few simple things about basic biology before making complete FOOLS of themselves and should have the good sense to get out of important races after they have irretrievably embarrassed themselves.

This loss is entirely on YOU Akin, you are the very model of the modern selfish creep.

F that comb-over clown. Who the hell can screw up a question about race. Then he was selfish enough to get out. Hope he enjoys all the abortions that will take place under 0bamacare.

Akin, through his stupid comments gave credibility to the democratic “war on women” attack. Not only did he cost a senate seat, he easily could have cost Romney votes in Florida/Virginia/Ohio. He is one of the worst things to happen to Republicans in a long time. Not saying he cost Romney the election, but he was part of it.

I agree - we’ll never know whether he energized the war on women enough to sway VA FL OHIO and make NC damned close. Women vote, many of them, with their twats.

No conspiracy here or anything, but just imagine how inexpensive in the grand scheme of things it would be to pay off someone to say amazingly stupid things to help further a broader narrative that conservatives are backwards and hate women.

Just saying...

I put just as much blame on very stupid voters in Missouri - who won’t forgive a poor selection of words when something as important as your representation in Washington DC is as stake. Akin spoke very foolishly - but still represented a FAR better choice for Senate.

I was so looking forward to Claire being gone! This should have been an easy win, but Akin, in his selfishness, gave it away. Missouri went Romney, but unfortunately this doesn’t matter. Missouri also went for a democrat governor and senator (because of Akin). I don’t ever want to listen to another word he says.

“This loss is entirely on YOU Akin, you are the very model of the modern selfish creep.”

And then there’s his “buddy” in Indiana Richard Mourdock, and back in 2010 there were Sharron Angle and Chrlstine O’Donnell. These people all give decent Conservatives a black eye while pursuing their selfish goals. They make fools of themselves, besmerch Conservative principles, and have that undeserved sense of entitlement to waste our time with their moronic candidacies. Here we have four US Senate seats we gave away at a time when we sorely needed them.

I agree that Akin would have been better than McCaskill, however his statement was a window into his ignorance, and I'm afraid, his unelectability.

Mister Akin owes the Great State of Missouri and all of us GOPers an apology for his selfishness.

I agree with you that I wish the Missouri voters would have done a better contrasting and comparison of competing stupidities between the two candidates, but I was pretty certain that they would not .
