Answer: Because McCaskill realizes that she's not going to face Todd Akin this time around

Ques­tion: Why was Claire McCaskill prac­ti­cally alone among democ­rats in tweet­ing out this yesterday

gen­er­at­ing angry responses like this from left­ists like this

and this

and this

and this

and this

forc­ing her to send out responses like this

and this

in the face of angry leftists?


McCaskill knows that unlike Kellogg’s which has to mar­ket to an entire nation and thus has to worry if said tweet­ers might (like me) no longer be buy­ing their prod­ucts hers is a niche mar­ket within the state of Mis­souri against a party that likely won’t be fool­ish enough to let Democ­rats pick their nominee.

She was one of the few swing state sen­a­tors to sur­vive her vote for Oba­macare she’s going to do her best to sur­vive once again and she does this by play­ing the long game:

Accord­ing to the US cen­sus Mis­souri has a black pop­u­la­tion of 11.7%. It has a his­panic pop­u­la­tion of 3.4% Addi­tion­ally while Democ­rats have been win­ning the Governor’s man­sion since Mis­souri have held the governor’s man­sion since 2009 both the House and Sen­ate in the state have gone Repub­li­can since 2003.

In other words Mis­souri has been trend­ing red and while the media has been giv­ing a lot of lat­i­tude to pro­test­ers in Fer­gu­son, riots by left lean­ing mobs and attacks on police are not likely to cause the state to turn any bluer any­time soon.

So see­ing the lay of the land and under­stand­ing that the next sen­ate elec­tion she is fac­ing is in a midterms she had to quickly estab­lish her inde­pen­dence from the two most unpop­u­lar Democ­rats in the nation, Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

You might say: But DaT­e­chGuy Barack Obama was very pop­u­lar? My answer. Clever Claire McCaskill knows fake news when she sees it.

So she will rejoice in sto­ries like this and posts like thisand high­light them to dis­tance her­self from the vio­lent protests because regard­less of the face she presents to the twit­ter world the rad­i­cals in her state who turned a thug like Michael Brown into a gen­tle giant know that the real­ity is she has their back.

Lucky for us most Democ­rats aren’t as smart as her.

Clos­ing thought, If I was run­ning the RNC or a con­ser­v­a­tive pac I’d encour­age donors to qui­etly start financ­ing a rad­i­cal left­ists, pos­si­bly a black nation­al­ist to pri­mary her and point to this event as a rea­son to do so. How­ever I sus­pect with a Rom­ney now call­ing the shots that thought will never come to mind.

Question:  Why was Claire McCaskill practically alone among democrats in tweeting out this yesterday

generating angry responses like this from leftists like this

and this

and this

and this

and this

forcing her to send out responses like this

and this

in the face of angry leftists?


McCaskill knows that unlike Kellogg’s which has to market to an entire nation and thus has to worry if said tweeters might (like me) no longer be buying their products hers is a niche market within the state of Missouri against a party that likely won’t be foolish enough to let Democrats pick their nominee.

She was one of the few swing state senators to survive her vote for Obamacare she’s going to do her best to survive once again and she does this by playing the long game:

According to the US census Missouri has a black population of 11.7%. It has a hispanic population of 3.4% Additionally while Democrats have been winning the Governor’s mansion since Missouri have held the governor’s mansion since 2009 both the House and Senate in the state have gone Republican since 2003.

In other words Missouri has been trending red and while the media has been giving a lot of latitude to protesters in Ferguson, riots by left leaning mobs and attacks on police are not likely to cause the state to turn any bluer anytime soon.

So seeing the lay of the land and understanding that the next senate election she is facing is in a midterms she had to quickly establish her independence from the two most unpopular Democrats in the nation, Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

You might say: But DaTechGuy Barack Obama was very popular? My answer. Clever Claire McCaskill knows fake news when she sees it.

So she will rejoice in stories like this and posts like thisand highlight them to distance herself from the violent protests because regardless of the face she presents to the twitter world the radicals in her state who turned a thug like Michael Brown into a gentle giant know that the reality is she has their back.

Lucky for us most Democrats aren’t as smart as her.

Closing thought, If I was running the RNC or a conservative pac I’d encourage donors to quietly start financing a radical leftists, possibly a black nationalist to primary her and point to this event as a reason to do so. However I suspect with a Romney now calling the shots that thought will never come to mind.
