Why Didn’t Dems, MO Media Flip When McCaskill Called Herself A Dog?


Democrats are desperate to distract from their scandal-plagued incumbent, and have once again enlisted Missouri media to assist. This week's Big Bird? Akin supposedly called McCaskill a "dog."
"She goes to Washington, D.C., it's a little bit like one of those dogs, 'fetch,' she goes to Washington, D.C., and get all of these taxes and red tape and bureaucracy and executive orders and agencies and brings all of this stuff and dumps it on us in Missouri. It seems to me that she's got it just backwards. What we should be doing is taking the common sense we see in Missouri and taking that to Washington, D.C., and blessing them with more solutions instead of more problems."
Cue LIBERAL RAGE®. Cue numerous, hysterical headlines.

That's just from one publication, the daily here in St. Louis. Have you searched for news about the Missouri Senate race on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website? The recent results read like a Dem oppo list:

Last week the news that a whistleblower, a longtime high-ranking employee with the McCaskill family business accused the Senator and her husband of using the senate dining room as the setting for closing business deals. On tape. The Post-Dispatch published not a single headline, despite the fact that the story made national news and continues to grow. Instead, they're focused on promoting the manufactured narrative that Akin called McCaskill a dog because she's at the beck and call of the Obama administration. Oddly enough, there was zero LIBERAL RAGE® when McCaskill referred to herself as a dog:
U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill sums up her five years as a Democratic senator from Missouri with one word: watchdog. She uses another to describe her 2012 re-election campaign: underdog.
Not once, but TWICE. TWO different dogs. In fact, a quick search turns up tons of such self-references in media all over the country. Cue Keanu Whoa: Where is the LIBERAL RAGE®? I'm not interested in what McCaskill says Akin didn't say, I'm more interested in hearing what else that whistleblower says. You know, the one Missouri media refuses to acknowledge.
