    Not quite. I will admit that She should have done the RV tour all the way if she was going to do a RV tour.

    Most people know there is showmanship to politicking, but the opposition takes their outrage to the extreme.

    She fucked up be giving the GOP any issue or opportunity to criticize her. The GOP has no legitimate room to criticize because of all the crap they allow from their candidates...

    We all know that means nothing to the moral superiors. "dont hold us to our moral standards we have for you" should be the GOP tag.

    McKaskill fucked up. she should have known better. she should have known the GOP would have used anything and everything against her.

    Way back in 1996, Michelle Cottle explained the reality. Thompson didn’t have an old red pickup, he leased it as a campaign prop. He didn’t even drive the thing — as Kevin Drum recently noted, “Basically, he just drove the thing the final few hundred feet before each campaign event, and then ditched it for something nicer as soon as he was out of sight of the yokels.”

    Pretty sure you could be described as a yokel, so no doubt you hate elites, Trump and his cabinet excepted of course since you are also a hypocrite.

    It was a mistake for sure, but at least it gave @Goofball a chance to unwittingly support an elite.

I suppose, if it worked for old-money billionaire Donald Trump, there's no telling just how stupid the people are. They could well fall for it.
    They fell for the 'populist' Trump born with a gold(plated) spoon in his mouth.

    No not worse. The GOP sets itself up as morally superior. We are all human. We all screw up.

    But GOP forgives theirs and no one else.

    Scandal, I tell you. Just scandalous!!

    Sounds like Claire married well her second time. She was an everyday working mom in her first marriage, very common roots as I remember. She was the first generation of feminists. EXPECTED to go to college and not just go to get an MRS. degree.

    Now if Claire claimed she slept and ate on it 24/7, then she's screwed. Otherwise it's SOP. For DEMS and REPS.

    They even let COMMON PEOPLE (like myself) get on a bus in a town and go to another stop in the same city. Oh yeah, and I did a whistlestop campaign tour on Amtrak through FLORIDA. I don't think they do those any more.

    PS. The Amtrak campaign tour I rode with was for a REPUBLICAN.
    Her husbands plane? Oh, I bet that cost more than Trump flying on Air Force One, non stop!
