Single party states like Missouri tend to allow the stupid and craven to rise to the top. And encourage others to emulate them.

He's more frightened of the crazy Trumpers than he is of any Democrat.

That's how you have a preppy moderate Republican from suburbia like Josh Hawley trying to pretend he's a gun-totin', truck-lovin', deer-huntin' man's-man who'd wave a Confederate flag in the Senate but for those PC pussies.

While at home he has a nice Chianti with his quinoa salad and a nice piece of grilled salmon and reads the Financial Times stock reports.

And, yes, he knows Chianti doesn't pair with salmon - he's not a farking peasant - but he felt a little rebellious.

We've also buried mines around the polling the places.  If you don't want to lose life or limb, you don't have to vote.  Choice is yours.

I'm surprised Parsons removed his mouth from Trump's genitalia long enough to get the words out.
 
2020-05-29 3:08:39 PM  
I can't think of a better way to make him choke on his words than putting as many Republicans out of work in the upcoming elections as possible.

Black people risked getting shot, lynched or beaten the fark up to vote in the south in the 1950s and 1960s.

You can put on a goddam mask and stand in line, if that's what it takes.

It's insane the levels of evil and depravity the GOP has accepted.  Like, their party has always been a pile for as long as I can remember, but I didn't expect that they'd be willing to drop this far. I don't even think a lot of the people in that party would have tolerated this kind of crap during the Bush years, but it's perfectably acceptable today.

They're basically declaring themselves enemies of the county and people just kind of shrug in response.

It says that Missourians approve of his handling of the pandemic by 2 to 1.

Basically, he told everyone to do whatever, don't bother him, and got angry when people did bother him.

Hawley is from Springfield, which is technically Missouri's 3rd largest city, but compared to STL and KC, it might as well be the boondocks. But your point stands - that's why we don't have any state wide elected pols that hail from those two cities.

Now Grietens was the guy from the ritzy STL suburb of Chesterfield who played up his Navy Seal cred to get elected only to get kicked out for his foray into BDSM with an unwilling partner.
 
2020-05-29 3:19:28 PM  
Lol.

The assumption is that it's the Democrats who will stay home vs the Republicans who will go out to vote. Which is true. The COVID stuff in Missouri is so partisan you can clearly tell the political party.

If you wear a facemask you likely voted Democrat. If you have a truckers cap and 3 kids at your heel then we know who you vote for.

2020-05-29 3:38:38 PM  
And the Republican plan to reelect Trump comes into perfect focus.

Trump doesn't wear a mask and underplays the severity of the pandemic because he wants Republican voters to be fearless and Democratic voters to be fearful. Voting by mail interferes with this plan by allowing Democratic voters to vote without fear which is why Republicans suddenly became against it.

Democrats are making a huge mistake by taking his response to the pandemic as incompetence. It's an extremely deliberate plan to get reelected by putting his supporters in harm's way.

The message "if you're afraid, don't vote" really means "if you're not drinking Trump's koolaid, don't vote."

The authoritarian mindset that makes them follow the lead of a mad narcissist rather than professionals is going to kill a lot of them, especially since they also oppose healthy diets, exercise, and weight loss.

I can't prove this statement at all, but part of me thinks Missouri's hard right turn correlated with the university's admission into the SEC back around 2011. Ever since then, MO has had this urge to play up it's Confederate history in order to ingratiate themselves with people from Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, etc. e.g., Driving down I-70 from STL to KC back in 2013, there were about 5 Confederate flags on the side of the road that I counted. That used to be a purely bootheel thing.

There's a lot more to it, of course, but I kind of wonder if the state's politics would be more right center if they had been accepted by the B1G instead.

It was happening before that.

My personal theory...that I just pulled out of my ass:

The Democrats in Missouri have had a slow decline in power the past couple of decades. Like other parts of the Midwest, the Democrat voters here were blue collar union workers. Manufacturing has been on a slow decline, the unions have been declining even moreso, and the political power in the Democratic strongholds has declined (STL and KC).

Instead that power has shifted from the Democratic cities to the Republican suburbs.

A steady diet of Fox News and Jesus helps too.
