Time's up for Todd Akin
The YouTube videos and advertising, hitting Todd Akin hard, began in earnest last evening, apparently:

"The Missouri Senate race kicked off in earnest Tuesday when Republican candidate
Todd Akin affirmed for the last time that he will not drop his Senate bid at a press conference in St. Louis...

Between the hits Mr. Akin will be taking from now on, from his opponent(s) and the lack of support from a larger group of Republicans and conservatives, it looks as though he will have a tough, if not impossible campaign ahead.

To Mr. Akin and his staff, I can only give Margo Channing's advice: "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night."
Pass the popcorn.
