      •  as a former Missourian, wild is the last word (7+ / 0-)

        I would use to describe it. Hidebound, parochial, narrow-minded, xenophobic -- those are the words I'd use. But I'd have to add some counterpoints to those criticisms that involve neighborliness, kindness, charm, stability and a better set of life priorities than I found when I moved back east (the latter refers to the fact that everyone I knew in St. Louis left work on time and went home, then spent their time with family and visiting friends, while here on the east coast, leaving on time is considered a sign of lack of commitment to your work).
        And there's also the barbeque. A place called McCrary's. One of the few nice memories I have of my first marriage (in St. Louis).

    •  no way have you seen some of the idiots (0+ / 0-)

      that are running against Claire?  The only reason Robin Carnahan
      didn't beat the living shit out of Roy Boy Blunt was that she
      ran a horrible campaign and 2010 was a bad year all
      around.  

      I can't see any of these freaking bozo's beating Claire, and
      am living in the Kansas City Area.
