“Friends, . The national liberal media, including The Huffington Post and Chris Matthews of MSNBC, are attacking me for standing up to the dangerous Obama agenda.".
Missouri is a state that has been the home of Harry S Truman, Stuart Symington, John Danforth, Kit Bond, and so many others, from both parties who have represented us with integrity and decency, and who would have resigned with embarrassment before putting the whole state up to ridicule.
So please, the next time you feel like you have to use your foot-in-mouth disease to justify another mealy-mouthed fundraising pitch- don't pretend it is just Chris Matthews and the national media types who are ridiculing you.
I have no doubt that I am not the only Missourian who considers you to be a joke.
Hopefully, some day, some "very personal constituent" will have the decency to let you in on the joke.
