I watched Fox News again. There might be a blue wave yet because the hosts are talking in desperate, beseeching tones. So that’s good.

On the negative side, McCaskill seems to have somehow found herself in the midst of a scandal where she’s being called “like a slaveowner” and “Dixie Claire.” I don’t even know what happened but if she starts getting attacked by her own side, her goose is cooked. I now want to beseech people to look into her opponent, Josh Hawley and ask themselves if they really prefer him to Claire.

  1. Her fellow Democrat Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal tweeted today: “She’s a piece of s—. Instead of knowing why people of color are angered by this administration, she chooses to put us and our families in harm’s way. If my family is harmed, blame it on Claire McCaskill. She deserves to lose. She is not a Democrat.”

    I’ve never heard a single Republican ever attack Trump like this.


    1. I find fucking unbelievable that people would be so incredibly oblivious. McCaskill is what stands between us and yet another Republican senate. Is it really so necessary to sabotage her at this particular point in time? Can’t all this wait six days? It’s just six days, God.

      This is a party that is doing its damnedest to lose.


  2. This is obviously a local /sub rosa thing because I had to look for this video. It’s obviously not something that caught on fire nationally.
    The very first result is that tweet and Claire McCaskell does not sound outrageous, honestly.

    Apparently Maria Chapelle Nadal is the “crazy Democrat” McCaskill is calling out directly for a FaceBook post she made over a year ago. The Missouri State Senate already censured her and her caucus chair removed her from all Senate committee assignments.
