With both Russ Carnahan and Robin Carnahan leaving elected office last January, the time has come to wind down their family blog: FiredUp! Missouri. And so they have:
Here at 24thState.com we have followed the hollow work of FiredUpMissouri (FUM) for years. Now seems a fitting time to remind our readers of the racist lies the Carnahans trumped up against Roy Blunt (R-MO). That was during Robin's failed bid for US Senate in 2010. We caught them red-handed manufacturing political "news" on multiple occassions in that campaign. Of course, FiredUp used similar tactics to go after Ed Martin when he was running against Russ. And who can forget our satrical press release about FiredUp merging with the Missouri Democratic Party?
With Russ Carnahan's loss to Lacy Clay in the MO-1 Democrat primary and Robin Carnahan's stint as Secretary of State coming to an end earlier this year, a glorious new day has dawned on the Show Me State. We have entered the era of Carnahan-free government. May it ever remain thus!
