Missouri voters are a thougthfull lot. The "Show Me State" motto may not be as sexy as New Hampshire's "Live Free or Die" but it is incredibly descriptive of how most Missourians think. Like the Missouri Mule made famous world wide for unparallelled service in World War I, the Missouri voter will not be lead by cattle prod or a ring in the nose, but must be persuaded. This is why Senate races are almost always very tight contests and the McCaskill-Akin race is no exception. The latest investigation from Reboot Congress may hold the bad news the McCaskill campaign fears most.
The pathetically unloveable McCaskill has seen her fate rise and fall as Missouri voters get momentarily distracted by the latest "shiny object" only to return to their predictable Show Me State conservative opinions. It is almost sad to watch Missouri's senior senator try so hard to position herself as a moderate and yet be totally unable to get her popularity above 50%. Thus, she appeared to be very vulnerable until the famous Akin gaffe apeared to give her the critical opening she needed.
Two polls now show that Missouri voters are back to rejecting McCaskill (Examiner and KOMU). This must be of great concern to McCaskill, especially in light of the investigation by Reboot Congress. Do they have the shiny object that will turn out to be the silver bullet?
The Headline "Why Isn't Capstone Development Listed on MCCaskill's Financial Disclosure" seems to suggest that there may be much more. I have a feeling there is.
