The state of my birth is collectively hemorrhaging its intelligence. There's just no other explanation.
In PPP's last poll of Missouri's U.S. Senate contest between the impeccably moderate incumbent, Claire McCaskill, and the lunatic, troglodytic, mumbo-jumboing misogynistic challenger, Todd Akin--now with a 29 percent favorable rating--the moderate leads the lunatic by a paltry 4 points. And that's a PPP poll, mind you.
What's more, a libertarian candidate is pulling 6 points almost entirely away from Akin.
Missouri--proud home of Harry Truman and Mark Twain and the twosome's plain, common horse-sense? Bullshit. It's become a foul nest of fucking imbeciles.
