Its down to the Wire in Missouri for US Senate with Jim Talent & Claire McCaskill … Record Turnout Expected


Its down to the very end in Missouri with the last poll showing incumbent Republican Jim Talent ahead of   Democrat Claire McCaskill   49 — 48. Even after  TV ads misrepresenting Talent that  he was against “stem cell” research.

Adult stem cell research, that is. I know, but watching Michael J. Fox’s near-slanderous attack on Senator Jim Talent, you’d have no idea that when Fox says that Talent opposes research into “stem cells,” he means “embryonic stem cells. (Red State)

Will Michael J. Fox and the stem cell (Amendment 2) play a factor? Or should be say the “Pro-Cloning Amendment

(Vanderbilt — ’06)

Claire McCaskill has made “cloning” part of her platform. Of course she tells the voters of MO with the aide of Fox that it is Embryonic Stem Cell research, or should we even say “stem cell”. Of course it would have been nice if Michael J. Fox had actually read the Amendment that he was so vigorously campaigning for. Way to be informed on the issues that you are trying to convince other of. How irresponsible can one be? You are shilling for a candidate and your cause and you have no idea what the Amendment really says because you “never read it”. How typical. Telling others what to think while purposely being misinformed yourself.

Fox: Well, I don’t think that’s true. You know, I campaigned for Claire McCaskill. And so I have to qualify it by saying I’m not qualified to speak on the page-to-page content of the initiative. Although, I am quite sure that I’ll agree with it in spirit, I don’t know, I— On full disclosure, I haven’t read it, and that’s why I didn’t put myself up for it distinctly. (ABC News)

Maybe the guys at   Scrappleface have it best in their parody ad. Parody is such an effective tool, subtle but cuts to the point.

According to the Gateway Pundit there is supposed to be 70% turnout in Missouri, not counting the registered voting dead and the 35,000 questionable ACORN Registration Forms.

The Gateway Pundit will be following the race throughout the night.

      What a putz… doesn’t he think about the consequences of
      his actions or is he too busy worrying only about himself?
      I’ll say it again… we didn’t like “Family Ties” that
      much, but I do believe that it was about family values.

      Where are those values now??? Are we supposed to throw
      out the baby with the bath water???

      Are we supposed to ignore our own immortality, and ignore
      the very good possibility that this research could end up
      in total disaster??? Look at the animals that we
      cloned… they lived a short life in constant pain.

      If that’s what he wants, go to San Francisco and find a
      good Doctor, but don’t expect the rest of us to stamp it
      with our approval.

      This guy needs to get a life… or atleast live his life
      the best way he can. Why is he wasting his time with this?
      All of us get sick and die (unfortunately) but that’s just
      the way it is. Even the cloned are not everlasting. The
      children are our future, not this cutie from Hollywood!!!!!

      Just cause he played one one T.V.
      doesn’t mean he’s a master politian.
