Missouri GOP Loses Nullification Fight; Turns Against Their Own

By: Saturday September 14, 2013 9:07 am

The Republican party holds a veto-proof majority of seats in both houses of the Missouri state legislature, but they discovered this past week that “veto-proof” means you have to keep your whole caucus together. After weeks of criss-crossing the state, Democratic Governor Jay Nixon caused enough sanity to break out among the MO GOP that he turned back the attempts to override vetoes on two major GOP initiatives: taxes and guns.

The anger aimed at “the Flimsy 15″ has been amazing to behold. “Worthless!” and “Primary them” and “strip them of their committee chairs” and “Not another dime to the MO GOP!” Meanwhile, the democratic attorney general and candidate to replace the term-limited Jay Nixon, Chris Koster, has to be smiling. He’s heard those cries before, and it’s what led him to bolt the GOP back in 2007. If the Flimsy 15 are tired of the GOP, Koster might remind them of the letter he wrote, back in the day, to help them write their own departure letters.

Yep, it’s America

I’m betting this record probably falls again over the extended July 4th weekend — in celebration, of course, of the only Amendment many Americans think they know but have never actually read.
