We have Senator Claire McCaskill who is a blue tinged Democrat, facing off with a certifiable lunatic Todd Akin.  The legitimate rape and and criticism of a strong female opponent of not being ladylike and the fact he is really too inbred even for the tea party leaders is just incredible.  But now the deadline has come and gone and the Republican party is showing its true face (again) and going all in on winning a senate seat for the worst possible candidate ever.  But then again all we have to do is look at their presidential candidate.

Missouri has been seemingly written off by most Democrats and liberals.  It is only eleven electoral collage votes after all, it is the buckle of the bible belt that continues to elect officials like Senator Roy Blunt (remember the Blunt amendment?) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...  

This is not a plea for help, with the recent unionization of nurses in Kansas City and St Louis  http://www.nationalnursesunited.org/(The Robin Hood Tax?  We help build that!) and a general stirring among the unions, community organizers, students and even our faith based brothers and sisters we will have plenty of help.  Attitudes are changing just like the times... http://www.youtube.com/...

More ranting on Missouri's famous sons below the fold...

Senator Roy Blunt, here is a sample of the rote partisan reply's...

With regard to same-sex marriage, I support retaining the traditional definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman.  In 1996, Congress passed and the President signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). (screw equality)

On proper chemical testing/labeling.
I am wary of reform proposals that allow government action without a showing that public health is at risk through sound science.  (the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down, I know - Todd, but House Science Committee, really Roy?)

We have a social responsibility to help the environment... If Congress enacts onerous legislation to reduce our emissions when foreign nations aren't doing the same, we will create devastating economic consequences for ourselves... (fuck the environemnt!)

On internet privacy.
I am a cosponsor of the Protect IP Act which would cut off foreign websites dedicated to counterfeiting and piracy that steal American jobs, hurt the economy, and harm customers. (or piss  off any of my big money corporate sponsors)

As if Roy and the shit stain Todd is not enough, we have had the major insult of this, http://house.mo.gov/... , it was a private affair using public money and property by the way.  
And of course the man can never STFU, "I'll just tell you this, if this passes and it's five years from now and all that stuff gets implemented -- I am leaving the country. I'll go to Costa Rica." http://www.cbsnews.com/... Then he backed out of that statement faster than Mitt Romney. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...   On Todd, "This was an absolutely ridiculous thing to say, to start qualifying rape in any way, legitimate — I know he apologized for it, but it's still an indication that there's more there that could potentially bubble up and be harmful,"  Not even a nopoligy or real anger over what was said, just butt hurt because the jackhole said it out loud. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...  And in the middle of the Sandra Fluke fuck up he actually called Senator Claire McCaskill a "commie babe liberal" http://www.stltoday.com/... something which I found hard to decipher.  With the "babe" between commie and liberal is this a tiny oxycontin shrunken penis http://www.scholarsandrogues.com/... crying out for attention/fantasy fulfillment?  I know this is old but it could never hurt to rub it in, so to speak. http://clairemccaskill.com/...

And Todd, the last word on ladylike comes from Diane Hartman whose husband tells her that belching and swearing aren't ladylike, she replies "Neither is a blow job, but you don't complain about that...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
