  •  It's a brilliant ad (0+ / 0-)

    You win in Missouri by racking up big numbers in the cities and picking up enough votes in the rural areas to put you over the top.

    Most of these rural areas are filled with older voters, as young people go off to college or move elsewhere.  Notice how the ad starts off with Akin's bizarre views on Medicare and Social Security.  She needs to keep running this ad or similar ones over and over and over again to the southern/far northern part of the state and she'll win handily.  People may vote R as a matter of course but not when it directly affects their income and medical care.  

    you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows
