Or, if you didn’t benefit from a classical education and you watch too much television:

…Smithers, release the hounds.

Senator Claire McCaskill’s (D) campaign has released three ads, one each for three of the right wingnut republicans trying to make it past the August primary. In alphabetical order:

Claire Mccaskill (D): I’m Claire McCaskill and I approve this message.

Narrator: The most conservative congressman in Missouri as our senator? Todd Akin. A crusader against bigger government, Akin would completely eliminate the Departments of Education and Energy and privatize Social Security. Todd’s pro-family agenda would outlaw many forms of contraception. And Akin alone says President Obama is a complete menace to our civilization. Todd Akin. Missouri’s true conservative is just too conservative.


Claire McCaskill (D): I’m Claire McCaskill and I approve this message.

Narrator: John Brunner, a reliable conservative? Turns out, records show since two thousand Brunner hasn’t even bothered to vote in sixteen elections. And as a CEO, the media reports, Brunner nearly killed the family business and ran up two hundred forty-five million in debt. No wonder John Brunner can’t even say where he would cut the federal budget. Around here, being reliable means showing up to vote and conservative means you don’t spend more than you make.

Claire McCaskill: I’m Claire McCaskill and I approve this message.

Narrator: Meet Sarah Steelman, she’s just more politics as usual. More pay to play, contributions from big contributors earn Sarah Steelman’s vote for big favors at taxpayer’s expense. More inside deals, taking thousands in gifts from lobbyists in just her first five months in office. And more to hide, in direct violation of sunshine laws, hundreds of key documents from Steelman’s office have gone missing. Sarah Steelman, just more of the same.

And they all thought that Claire wasn’t going to bring a Louisville Slugger to the street fight.
