Poll shows Akin down, sneaky Sen. McCaskill tries Jedi Mind Trick, 'No, you're fine'; Fails

Oh, good grief. Sneaky, heal thyself.

Senator McCaskill’s attempt at reverse psychology is incredibly lame; is she trying for yet another terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day? What Rasmussen poll is the Democrat Missouri senator trying, and failing, to discredit? Oh, only the one that has her now up by ten over Rep. Akin.

Prior to the “legitimate rape” debacle and subsequent media frenzy, Rep. Akin was leading McCaskill. Gee, we wonder why she wants him to think that he didn’t just plummet like a dumb rock?


Bingo. In her desperate attempt to bitterly cling to her senate seat, she is trying a pitiful Jedi Mind Trick: “You’re fine, Akin. No, no, you’re fine.” Citizens with half a brain see right through her, natch, and rightly call her out on her idiocy.

When you’ve lost BuzzFeed …

One would hope they would. In the meantime, perhaps McCaskill’s sneaky attempt will back-fire?


Nice try, Senator McCaskill. But once again, happy warriors are far too smart for you. Aren’t you tired of being constantly shamed yet?

    The Akin camp just came out with a statement saying McCaskill should drop out of the race since she hasn’t broken 50%. I’m glad I don’t live in Missouri because if the candidates for Senate from my state were acting like this I’d go insane.

    Stop your bitching!
    Remember when Mitts got the brass ring and we all bitched? Well we got what we got, lets use our votes to defeat McCaskill not Adkins!
    What to blame someone, start with the open primaries The Establishment uses to get tjhier Boys on the ticket…ie dole & McRino. Or how about Hucklberry bucking the obvious Tea Party choice? Now Palin wants a third party!
    10 points & 11 weeks to get your head out and get us a GOP senator who is better then Brown, Hatch & NcRino anyway

      Oh shut up with the RINO bullshit, it’s as tired and lame as the leftards screaming about racism.

      Primaries led to Obama for the Dems, and lots of nonsense Tea Party candidates on the right.

    Has any one asked the egotistical,self serving Aikin,how losing the MO Senate seat will help the pro-life cause?

  • stuckinIL4now

    Todd Akin aside, why aren’t republicans and conservatives just tearing into C-liar-e McC-as-kill anyway? Just bcuz you want Akin out is no reason to dial down the heat on his cheating and just-as-unworthy opponent.

      SHE should be the target. exactly. NO ONE wants her.

    I can’t tell you how much I despise this woman.

    • Conservativeanarchist

      What does it say about woman who changed their votes to her side?? They actually changed their vote based on his one comment. They rather lose the senate and continue to go along with the massive spending because of an issue that will probably not affect them anyway.

  • TLKensington

    Sucks that we lost this seat already.

    Wow if I didn’t see “Twitchy” at the top of this page, I would have thought it was a page from Daily Kos, Huffington Post or [insert other obviously leftist website here]. Shame.

    Claire’s strategy right now seems pretty smart, though her victory is far from certain. If you’re looking for a fun way to help her take down Akin, get yourself a pair of these bad boys:

    A dollar of each sale goes to her campaign.

    My wife and I put aside $500 every year for the pro life movement (local chapter of pro vitae) and for the last few years that was very hard , but no more.
    I called had the secretary asked her to check my past donations then informed her that there will be no further donations because of TODD AKIN . Will be speaking to all my neighbors as well . If the pro life movements will not see the big picture and allow PRO ABORTION McCaskill to win TO HELL WITH THEM
