They threw George "Macaca" Allen under the bus.....

It was Missouri they were worried about.

2006 Missouri's election was ground zero for GOP

WASHINGTON - Accusations about voter fraud seemed to fly from every direction in Missouri before last fall's elections. State and national Republicans leaders fretted that dead people might vote or that some live people might vote more than once.

The threat to the integrity of the election was seen as so grave that Bradley Schlozman, the acting chief of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division and later the U.S. attorney in Kansas City, twice wielded the power of the federal government to try to protect the balloting. The Republican-controlled Missouri General Assembly also stepped into action.

Now, six months after freshman Missouri Sen. Jim Talent's defeat handed Democrats control of the U.S. Senate, disclosures in the wake of the firings of eight U.S. attorneys show that that Republican campaign to protect the balloting was not as it appeared. No significant voter fraud was ever proved.

A concerted effort to keep a D from winning, and yet Ms McCaskill did?
Good job ma'am.

The whole US Attorney thing is growing tentacles. And they're reaching out farther and farther.

I'm thinking of starting a new career as a professional CSPAN 3 viewer.

Professional c-span viewer? Damn, I want that job!

Regarding McCaskill's win in Mo., my daughter lives in Mo.(moving soon) and she said that she wasn't surprised that McCaskill won, it only took a little effort to reach the voters and campaign smart. She said if Kerry had taken the time, he could easily have won Mo., but they were written off too soon. The tides have been changing there for awhile, and when Missourians get fed up with the right, you know Republicans have screwed things up!
