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 ofÃ‚ Democrat Claire McCaskillÃ‚ 49 Ã¢â‚¬” 48. Even afterÃ‚ TV ads misrepresenting Talent thatÃ‚ 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”

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, IÃ¢â‚¬” 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 Ã‚ Scrappleface have it best in their parody ad. Parody is such an effective tool, subtle but cuts to the point.
