“…listen, I’m a Mizzou educated lawyer, but I can keep up. [laughter] And I know what the word shall means in the law. Now I know he went to Yale, I think, or Harvard, one of those, one of those fancy ones. Um, I think they taught him the same thing, shall is shall…” – Senator Claire McCaskill (D) on Josh Hawley (r) – August 17, 2017

Josh Hawley (r) is not very good at this social media voter engagement thing.

“…@clairecmc – I set up a flatbed truck that we can take anywhere across the state. I’ll take it to any courthouse – or if necessary to any airport tarmac to meet your plane. You name the time & the place. #MOSen…”

“…@clairecmc – I’ll be in Blue Springs tomorrow at 1 p.m. with my flatbed truck. Let’s debate. #MOSen…”

He didn’t tell anyone exactly where. How convenient.

Uh, he wrote, “You name the time & the place…” Which is it? Claire chooses or he chooses?

Early this evening, from Senator Claire McCaskill (D):

Claire McCaskill @clairecmc
Note to Yale law grad: the thing you are standing on is a trailer. The picture below it is a flatbed truck. See you at our first debate!
5:43 PM – 8 Aug 2018

These kinds of things are usually called ten to fifteen seconds into the first round.
