Cynthia Davis: Republicans have been selling their souls for years

Cynthia Davis, the former Republican state representative from O'Fallon, continues to burn her bridges behind her as she mounts a campaign for lieutenant governor on the Constitution Party ticket.

During a recent Constitution Party meeting in Idaho, shown in the accompanying video, Mrs. Davis said Republicans "have been selling their souls for years."

She also offers a convoluted recollection of the four times when Keith Olbermann placed her on his Worst Person of the World list after she said hunger was a great motivator for children.

She explains that the government providing breakfast, lunch and summer meals for schoolchildren will lead to setting up the children in orphanage-like barracks.

As for not being a Republican any more, she quotes Martin Luther King Jr. and says "free at last, free at last, Thank God Almighty, I'm free at last."

At the 26 minute mark, Mrs. Davis gives an imitation of an open-mouthed fish, likening it to how Missouri politicians act when seeking gifts from lobbyists and special interests.

I know some folks in her former district. They would vote for her again.

According to Wikipedia: "She lost a primary race for state senator in 2010. She also lost an election for the St. Charles County Ambulance Board."

The Constitution Party is really a force to be reckoned with, huh?

My point was that her former district is full of nutcases like her.
