I’ll probably vote for McCaskill against whatever godawful candidate the Republicans put up against her, but I can’t honestly urge people to vote for her. I won’t be doorknocking, calling people, blogging on her behalf, forwarding her links on Facebook, nothing. And her support of the “Deficit Commission” proposals is only the latest reason.

Maybe she thinks she can peel off a few Republican voters by trying to balance the budget on the backs of the elderly and the less fortunate, but she’s going to lose the enthusiasm of a lot more Democrats like me than she will gain on the other side of the aisle.
