Daughter of Blunt's Gaming Commission choice says Turner is a moron

Jessica Hais, daughter of Sam Hais, who was appointed to the Missouri Gaming Commission last month by Governor Matt Blunt, says the author of this blog is a moron.
Miss Hais took exception to the June 9 Turner Report which detailed how much money Hais and his family, including his wife and daughters Jessica and Jamie, contributed to Missourians for Matt Blunt, the governor's campaign committee.
In a response posted Monday, Miss Hais said:

"Wow. Who would have ever though Sam Hais would be the next Tom Delay? By the way, masterful neglection of the fact that both daughters are, in fact, financially autonomous and solvent. Moron."

While I am happy to know the Hais girls are autonomous and solvent, I find nothing in my original post that indicates they are subservient and destitute.

What I noted was the amount of money that poured into Blunt's campaign from those connected to Hais, including his family and members of his law firm. "Ethics Commission disclosure forms," I wrote, "indicate that between Hais, his family, and his law firm, Hais, Hais & Kallen, the governor received at least $16,575 between 2003 and 2005.

Had he not contributed that amount, would he still have been considered for the post? While I feel bad about offending Miss Hais, and appreciate her comment, that question remains unanswered.

You have to ask yourself...

Why would she compare her father to Tom DeLay? Delusions of grandeur? Does she know something we don't?

Sort of makes you wonder...

The girl catches on quick. It took some of your readers several visits to decide you are a moron.

And yet, even though you call him a moron, you continue to read this blog. Makes one think, doesn't it?

I am so confused, why would any daughter want to compare her father to Tom Delay? Am I missing something? Is she angry at her Dad about something?

I believe she was being sarcastic and trying to say I was comparing her father to DeLay.

...having had previous experience with the Hais legal firm, I have no doubt that the term "ruthless" needs to be introduced into this conversation...

Judge Haises daughter says Turner is a moron. OK. Maybe he is.
However, Whetther he is or not, This young lady NEVER compared her dad to anyone.
She was utilizing SARCASM, because she was, apparently, appalled by the idea that it is somehow "undemocratic" to raise funds for the candidate of one's choice. After all, Dems do it too, NO ?????
What an infernal bunch of hypocrites. And shame. SHAME on those who create a double standard.
