Teen blog details internship for governor, lobbying firm

Fired Up Missouri had a fascinating post Tuesday about a Chillicothe teen who worked as an intern for Governor Matt Blunt and for his old House of Representatives buddy, lobbyist Jewell Patek last summer.
The post is based on a reading of the teen's MySpace blog, which features her odes to drinking and cursing.
After reading it, I am left with two questions:

1. Don't the governor and Patek realize how bad this connection between the state's top elected official and a lobbyist looks?

2. If they are going to offer internships, couldn't they have found someone more deserving than this foulmouthed airhead?

Is this the person running against NOdler? Seems to me that anymore independent is just another name for democrat.
