After the undressing Claire McCaskill took with my recent blog post, Really, Claire!!!, wherein I vented my angst at her refusal to side with the people of Missouri, ObamaClaire herself, took to the Saturday Night Live vault to make her retort. While I went off with a Weekend Update/Seth Meyer rant, McCaskill reached back a bit further to pull out the Jon Lovitz/liar bit, "Yeah, that's the ticket."
Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has the story. In it, he notes that the media is helping Claire attempt to convince the Missouri voters that she is against the mandate, (which is so central to the new law that Judge Roger Vinson, in calling the mandate unconstitutional was compelled to toss out the entire act) but refused to vote to repeal the law. In fact, Hoft points out,
When McCaskill had the opportunity to remove the mandate during Senate negotiations in 2010, she refused. Instead, she voted to keep the mandate in the bill by killing a Republican amendment (H.R. 4872, CQ Vote #101: Motion agreed to 58-40: R 0-40; D 56-0; I 2-0, 3/25/10, McCaskill Voted Yea).
As she tries to pivot away from the Health Care Reform law, her Liar's "That's the Ticket!" gambit is an attempt to reposition herself for her relection campaign in 2012. Just as we never bought what Jon Lovitz was selling us, we're not about to be taken in by ObamaClaire. McCaskill doesn't represent Missouri. It's time for her to go. We need someone in the Senate who will actually represent the voters. Repeal Claire. Now, THAT's the ticket!
