Better Too Liberal Than Too Crazy

The latest Missouri Senate poll shows Claire McCaskill ahead of Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin, 46 to 40%.

His favorables/unfavorables, 31/57, are terrible, but hers aren’t great either, 44/51.

Clearly a less insane Republican would have won Missouri as the GOP planned, but voters would rather elect someone they consider too liberal than someone they consider too crazy.

Todd Akin is another case of the Sharon Angle/Christine O’Donnell Tea Party stupidity that cost them the Senate in 2010.
