    made of green cheese, but that won't happen.  Missouri is not going to elect Bernie Sanders however much we would love to have another 99 of him in the senate.  They get to choose between Akin and McCaskill, and being against McCaskill makes you effectively supporting Akins.

    Not all those who wander are lost.

    •  Really! We unfortunately have to deal with reality (6+ / 0-)

      and I appreciate the difference between Missouri and western Massachusetts where I live. We all need to stick together.

      I am not opposed to McCaskill, just wistfully yearning for a better situation In which people, I.e. voters were better informed and thinking for a change. Akin in many ways epitomizes the southernized GOP, which is racist and msogynous.

      As for reality, iI've managed through 48 years of voting - sometimes unable to actually vote for the real democrat nominee for president. I have actually contributed to McCaskill's campaign.

      As for western mass to me in ct, I just hope brown goes down in utter defeat. Would be nice if Linda McMahon could get skunked
