I'm with Grandpa Simpson - "I'll be deep in the cold, cold ground before I recognize Missourah."
But I do applaud the Springfield News-Leader for kicking the grouty butt of Roy Blount when he was caught REPEATEDLY lying to a newspaper editorial board about health care reform. Kudos to them and the diarist at Daily Kos who's spreading the word about Roy "It's not a lie if I say it's not! Really, I think I remember that somebody might maybe have told me this! Really!!!!" Blount.
If you think my hatred of Missouri petty and childish, please go and live there for four years. Then we'll talk. They didn't call them "Pukes" in the previous to last century for nothin', kids.
