— Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin his getting some help from a large Arkansas family that has its own TV reality show.

Akin’s campaign says the family of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar will be appearing at several of his campaign events this week. The Duggars star on the TLC reality show 19 Kids and Counting, which gets its name from the fact they have 19 children.

Michelle Duggar plans to participate in a women-for-Akin event Tuesday in Springfield, Mo. The Duggar family is supposed to attend rallies with Akin later that day in Osage Beach and Wednesday in Farmington and Poplar Bluff.

Akin, a Republican, is running against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in the Nov. 6 election.

If I were a Missourian, I'd vote for Donald Duck before voting for McCaskill. She is the Pelosi from the midwest. I total idiot and lackey for the big Dems from Chicago.

JimBob47.... You are voting for Doald Duck when you vote for "Legitimate Rape" Todd Akin, Jim Bob needs a few more wives and he could start his own right wing militia and you coul volunteer to train them for free.

The Duggars are but one reason the rest of the world laughs at Arkansas- while the rest of us weep.

Arkansas should be proud of the Duggars! They manage to raise, feed & clothe 19 well behaved kids WITHOUT accepting government support! Shows some 'Ozark ingenuity' if you ask me.

Way to go dconard!! At least the Duggar's ARE NOT looking for a gov't check in the mail!!! They make their OWN way!!!! They teach their children MORALS, which so many are lacking now days!!!!!

If you want to discuss morals and wisdom, then Akins is certainly the man who is lacking in that department when it comes to women, rape, forced vaginal probes, medieval medical practices, etc.

What do you expect NoUserName when it comes from people who don't like it when you use facts or fact-checkers. JJ's droll drivel is already stale before he hits Post Comment button.
