There's got to be a morning after. Or does there?

The British have been known to say, "The King is dead.  Long live the King!"

The implication being that the ball keeps rolling.  Drink water and drive on.

And so it is the morning after the 2012 Missouri Primary.

The "Akin, Brunner, Steelman Race" is now the "Akin, McCaskill, (Dine), Race."

And yes, it is already rolling.

Anti-McCaskill ad #1 (post primary) is on the air Wednesday morning, courtesy Karl Rove.  It is worth pointing out that Congressman Akin was pleased to stay above the fray in the primary and, yes, he came out on top.  He ran a clean campaign in the primary in that he did not approve any ads that cast any opponent in a negative light.  It's naive to think that that is why he won, nor to believe that a campaign this large would stay antiseptic, even for one day.  Let the Hunger Games begin.
