    Need to start a Hall of Fame for the people who are so far out in right field that they aren't even in the ballpark. The ones who somehow manage to win the primaries because apparently the Conservative electorate doesn't mind saying, "We don't really want this seat. Please take it, Democrats. We just want to make a statement."

    Christine O'Donnell is obviously in that Hall of Fame.

    Who else belongs?

    He could be.

    But Clair ain't Harry Ried.

    She's toast.

    Clair wanted this guy for a reason.

    The undecideds in MO are the moderates. The tea party and other assorted rightwing nuts in MO gave McCaskill the best chance she was going to get.

    They'll just claim that they've hit a home run.

    Akin may have given the Senate continuity to the Dems with his stupid ass remark.

    You TPM freaks have to shut up and follow the game plan, or you will cost the GOP election again. We should have had the Senate in 2010, but, no, Sharron and Christine had to run their f'in mouths, just like Akin.

    Heaven help us, please, to survive these crazoids.

    Fwiw, I don't think we could have had the senate in 2010. But we should have been able to oust Harry Reid and give the rest of the Democrats some reason for serious thought.

    Reid let Obama get away with unilaterally declaring the Senate out of session. A body of senators not led by a smug Reid and feeling a greater need to be attentive to their constituents' wishes might not have stood still for Obama's seizure of power.

    Akin wasn't the tea party candidate; Steeleman was.

    Absolutely. The Republicans would have won Nevada and Delaware had they not nominated those two nut jobs.

    Perhaps one day the GOP will come to its senses and stop running crazy people.
