Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, the all-but-certain Democratic nominee for the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Christopher S. "Kit" Bond, was "already locked in" to meetings in Washington, D.C., on Wall Street financial reforms, said her spokesman, Linden Zakula, who downplayed her absence for Mr. Obama's visit to St. Charles, just outside St. Louis.There were other Democrat politicians and siblings of Robin Carnahan who skipped the Presidential visit, but the irony here is that Missouri's Secretary of State has accused GOP Senate hopeful, Roy Blunt, of spending too much time in DC. The President comes to Missouri and she jets off to that swamp on the Potomac. He's a political pariah and she knows it. I think Monty Python wrote a song about Sir Robin Carnahan...
On Saturday, 3/20, in Jefferson City, there will be a US Senate candidate forum that includes eight of the nine GOP candidates—Roy Blunt is a maybe—and one of the two Democrat candidates. Sir Robin Carnahan has declined the invitation.
If you are a traveling minstrel who'd like to make a few bucks, on March 20th go to the Truman Hotel between 2PM and 6:30PM. And here's your song sheet [with only a few minor edits]:
Brave Sir Robin ran away.
Bravely ran away, away!
When danger reared its ugly head,
[She] bravely turned [her] tail and fled.
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
And gallantly [she] chickened out.
Bravely taking to [her] feet
[She] beat a very brave retreat,
Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin!
[She] is packing it in and packing it up
And sneaking away and buggering up
And chickening out and pissing off home,
Yes, bravely [she] is throwing in the sponge...
