Rep. Vicky Hartzler ‏@RepHartzler

Missouri’s Fourth continues to shine! Website names Columbia one of best places to live! #MO4 [….]  7:14 AM – 15 Sep 2015

Ah, yes, the people’s glorious socialist workers paradise that is Columbia, Missouri.

There were a couple of replies:

@RepHartzler I actually still think of myself as living in the 9th in COMO. It works bc you don’t represent me at all anyway. 7:38 AM – 15 Sep 2015

Ouch.

B Yates ‏@OldDrum

@RepHartzler Interesting. I don’t think you actually win Columbia, do you? 3:41 PM – 15 Sep 2015

We checked:

             (WITH 60 OF 60 PRECINCTS COUNTED)

It’s the whole county. But, then again, winning the county by just under nine percentage points as an incumbent against a political unknown with no money who was practically living out of his beat up car….

In the Dark Ages we could only yell at our television sets or write a letter to the editor of the local paper which wouldn’t be published. This is way more fun.
