Brody: You’re gonna need a bigger boat.
Today, at the Missouri Ethics Commission, the republican senate campaign committee had a really good day:

It always seems so easy for Missouri republicans. The money thing. They end up having all they need.
Casting their Republican counterparts as ineffectual extremists, some of Missouri’s top Democratic officials provided a blueprint of sorts at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner to gain even more ground in the Show Me State.
And Attorney General Chris Koster, a former Republican, pledged to put up a substantial amount of campaign money to help the cause….
….And on Saturday, he [Attorney General Chris Koster] pledged to give $400,000 over the next four years to help Democrats in the Missouri legislature.
“While our party’s individual statewide victories are significant, they cannot be enough without a legislature to support us,” Koster said. “Our individual victories cannot improve the education of a single child or land a single cargo plane at Lambert Field or bring health care to a single unemployed auto worker. Individual success is just that – it’s individual.”
“They say that politics is a team sport,” he added. “This much I know. Public policy success requires team success. And team success requires team play….”
Yep, he’s gonna need to raise a lot more money.
