Schaaf (R-SCHIP is like slavery) donned a surgical facemask in a swine flu reference today.

That went over badly with another Republican, Jason Brown, who represents Platte County (site of the first rumored swine flu case in Missouri).

Here’s something you won’t read in the news, Rob Schaaf is running for the Senate in the 34th district which is made up of Buchanan and Platte Counties. So yes, a guy running for the Senate in a district including Platte County just made light of a possible health problem in Platte County.

Let’s hope that whatever makes Rob Schaaf say stupid things isn’t contagious.
