Because of Missouri law, Steelman or Bruner are not eligible. It would be a travesty if the Repub establishment could bypass the voters and install another RINO, like Bond or Blunt. Hell, the patriots of this state have been trying to elect a real conservative for years! Now we've done it, don't mess with it. Liberty and truth will win over deceit and lies every time.

Except it is about you, Rep. Akin. Akin told NBC this morning that Paul Ryan called him yesterday and urged him to drop out of the Missouri Senate race. Akin is continuing his argument that his decision to stay in the race (the deadline to drop out was yesterday at 5 pm cst) that this isn't about him but about standing on principle. The problem is, the focus isn't on principle, it's on Akin's refusal to drop out like nearly the entire conservative movement and Republicans have asked.
