“This could be a Mount Carmel moment. You know, you bring your gods. We’ll bring ours. We’ll see whose God answers the prayers and brings fire from heaven. That’s kind of where I’m praying: that there will be fire from heaven, and we’ll see it clearly, and everyone else will to.” Did Mike Huckabee attack Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith? – National Political Buzz | Examiner.com http://www.examiner.com/article/did-mike-huckabee-attack-mitt-romney-s-mormon-faith JPS 1917 ”1Ki 18:12-46 12 And it will come to pass, as soon as I am gone from thee, that the spirit of the LORD will carry thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he cannot find thee, he will slay me; but I thy servant fear the LORD from my youth. 13 Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the LORD, how I hid a hundred men of the LORD’S prophets by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water? 14 And now thou sayest: Go, tell thy lord: Behold, Elijah is here; and he will slay me. ’15 And Elijah said:’ As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely show myself unto him to- day. ’16 So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him; and Ahab went to meet Elijah. 17 And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him:’ Is it thou, thou troubler of Israel? ’18 And he answered:’ I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed the Baalim. 19 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the Asherah four hundred, that eat at Jezebel’s table. ’20 And Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel. 21 And Elijah came near unto all the people, and said:’ How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him. ‘And the people answered him not a word. 22 Then said Elijah unto the people:’ I, even I only, am left a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men. 23 Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, and put no fire under; and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on the wood, and put no fire under. 24 And call ye on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the LORD; and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. ‘And all the people answered and said:’ It is well spoken. ’25 And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal:’ Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your god, but put no fire under. ’26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying:’ O Baal, answer us. ‘But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they danced in halting wise about the altar which was made. 27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said:’ Cry aloud; for he is a god; either he is musing, or he is gone aside, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked. ’28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with swords and lances, till the blood gushed out upon them. 29 And it was so, when midday was past, that they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening offering; but their was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded. 30 And Elijah said unto all the people:’ Come near unto me ‘; and all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was thrown down. 31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying:’ Israel shall be thy name. ’32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD; and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed. 33 And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid it on the wood. 34 And he said:’ Fill four jars with water, and pour it on the burnt- offering, and on the wood. ‘And he said:’ Do it the second time ‘; and they did it the second time. And he said:’ Do it the third time ‘; and they did it the third time. 35 And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water. 36 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening offering, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said:’ O LORD, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that Thou art God in Israel, and that I am Thy servant, and that I have done all these things at Thy word. 37 Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that Thou, LORD, art God, for Thou didst turn their heart backward. ’38 Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt- offering, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. 39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said:’ The LORD, He is God; the LORD, He is God. ’40 And Elijah said unto them:’ Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. ‘And they took them; and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there. ” RRD:This individual will be addressing the GOP convention.

McCaskill avoids Akin attacks in hopes of keeping him in the race – The Hill’s Ballot Box http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/senate-races/245095-mccaskill-avoids-akin-attacks-in-hopes-of-keeping-him-in-the-race ….”Kenneth Warren, a professor of political science at Saint Louis University, noted McCaskill’s silence on that issue. “Big time she has, she’s even been sympathetic with his plight,” he said, adding “I think she’s silent right now because I think she’s praying that Todd Akin does not drop out, because it’s her only chance of winning. She is not popular in this state.” ….”And Democrats were quick to push back against Thursday’s poll, saying Rasmussen has a conservative bias and is in cahoots with GOP party leadership in trying to pressure Akin out of the race. “Everyone knows that Rasmussen is a tool of the Republican establishment in Washington,” Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee press secretary Shripal Shah told The Hill. A McCaskill campaign aide added that “it’s just not in line with what we’re seeing in our internal polling.” “There’s a concerted [GOP] effort to get Todd Akin to bow out,” he said. “So it’s quite a coincidence that this poll came out right after someone in his campaign said he would re-evaluate if he was down by 7 to 9 percent … we were just out [polling] in the field yesterday and it showed we’re in a dead heat.” And McCaskill herself tweeted: “Rasmussen poll made me laugh out loud. If anyone believes that, I just turned 29. Sneaky stuff.” RRD:I find it bitterly amusing that some “pro-life” politicans and individuals are so moved by their horror of abortion that they seek to outlaw it,but not enough to tell Akin that he may cost the GOP the Senate,and that Obamacare will thereby stay on the books,with all that implies for abortion.

”I mentioned it on twitter, yesterday, but it bears repeating: Akin’s convenient misconception about pregnancy gave him an easy out when it comes to abortion. Hegets totake the tough line on abortion — make it illegal inall cases– but thensoothhisguilty conscience by believing some horseshit about women havingways to nonetheless dispose of an unwanted pregnancy. It’smoral cowardice, but I bet you anything Akin thinks he’s a martyr”
1.Akin is stupid. He is very stupid.He is very,very stupid. He is so stupid ,that he said something that a 12yr old girl would not be stupid enough to say.
2. The fact that the Dems are hypocritical with their stupid and immoral people means that they should be condemned, not emulated.
3. Some of us know rape victims. His statement sickened & nauseated many of them,& us.
4. We may lose the Senate race in Missouri because Akin is stupid (or a liar) & because he refused to drop out of the race. Not because we did not pretend that “there are things about biology that we don’t know”,not because we did not “stand with Akin”,but because Akin is a moron (or evil) and he is
RIGHTLY regarded as being either a moron or evil by many people.
But never mind.
Let’s define deviancy down to the lowest common denominator.
After all Akin wants to be a Senator. Shouldn’t we care about his widdle feelings.

RRD:For those who missed the allusion,it’s to Sophie’s Choice. Now that the deadline has passed and it would actually cost Akin, well…gosh, gee money,well I guess we will all have to fall in line behind this ass,now won’t we? After all if I and others won’t support Akin (fn1) Macaskill will win and WE will be to blame. We,not Akin,We not the morons who voted for Akin. We and We alone. After all,”Obama will thank us”. Isn’t that the magic spell that is supposed to shut down all debate on the relative merits of the GOP and the Dems? My response to that is to say:”Look at me,and look at Akin etal,and ask yourself if I would ever feel that my moral stature was at the mercy of something that Akin(or Floyd Ferris) did.” There may be legitimate reasons to vote for a Republican;guilt is not one of them. After Mccain self-immolated, Rush Limbaugh said that he was “through carrying other people’s water”. I made a similiar comment. I meant it.
