Claire McCaskill's Office Has a Message for Her Constituents
When constituents protested the impending ObamaCare outrage at Claire McCaskill's office Friday, instead of cordially taking a message for the Senator, the apparatchiks staffing her office locked the door, pulled down the blinds, and called the cops to have the peaceful protesters driven across the street. But not before a McCaskill staffer treated the patriots to a double birdie:
Nothing could better symbolize the contemptuous, authoritarian arrogance our rulers are exhibiting in their ham-fisted attempt to Stalinize our healthcare system.

She's apparently forgotten who put her there.
Any more, a rallying cry a la Bill Cosby is sounding very attractive: "We put you there, we can take you out".
I don't care for a slew of unknowns slipping in to run the shop, but there has to be a way for Our Elected to get a short list message loud and clear: Listen up, be fiscally responsible, remember you are to lead, not rule, most of us prefer to be left the hell alone, and last - give weighty consideration to your role in terms other than an intended career path with benefits. To that last; if you don't, you may be sorely disappointed.
People will start thinking that 'Angel you don't know' as a viable alternative, because the lot of you (as devils we do know) have the stench of sulfur about you.
By the way, there should be a Constitutional Amendment proclaiming that any bill passed by the House and Senate would put politicians under the exact constraints as the rest of us. A congressman has already proposed such an addition to the health-suck-up-and-die-bill.

This story represents the left's definition of transparency.

It doesn't have to be all unknowns. There are surely a good few state legislators that could be grown into federal ones. The state legislatures could be like the bush leagues in baseball. What the R's should do, though, is put someone credible up for EVERY seat, and campaign to WIN. Don't leave the rats ANY "safe seats". I know it won't result in a sweep, but we need to take advantage of the opportunity, not let a perfectly good crisis go to waste.

Claire gets solid F's all around at gradegov.com. From Dems and Ind's, too. Lotsa hate mail. She's up for reelection in 2012.

Goatse Wellstone's people.

Van, I just called the office they were in front of. Apparently the staff was in a meeting and left the office alone with one young girl who was allegedly frightened at the protesters banging down the door.
The staff admin told me that the people upstairs (the advertising agency) were the ones that flipped the people off.
We had an interesting talk. Apparently they keep the doors locked and they have to buzz you in in order to speak to the staff.
I told the admin staff today that this whole thing is ridiculous. These people outside the door hardly look like anyone who would have committed a crime or would have harmed the poor frail angel in the office.

I'll try it again.

OK, that's why I capitalise some words.

Shame she's not up in 2010; she'd make a good example. As it is, hopefully she'll get what's coming to her.
