The difference between Republicans and Democrats is that Democrats are smart enough not to primary blue-dog Democrats for breaking rank on gun control, but Republicans have no qualms about primarying Rockefeller Republicans for breaking rank on social issues. You would think that Missouri's Republican primary voters would have been spooked by the fact that Democrats spent over $1 million in the primary to help Todd Akin, but it didn't to the delight of Claire McCaskill. The Tea Party is the best thing that ever happened to McCaskill.
