Claire McCaskill: Stuck in More Ways Than One

May 5th, 2009 by mopns · No Comments

Claire Bear is having a rough two days. First her president calls her out on she and her husband’s offshore bank accounts that helps them avoid taxes on their substantial wealth, and know she’s stuck in the tram between the Capitol and her office:

 From Twitter:

Stuck in tram from Capitol to Hart. Broken. Not moving. Lieberman and Alexander in next car. And Voiniitch. Wonder how long we’ll be here?

    During fall semester, 1968, I was s student at The American University in Washington, DC. At that time, security was less around the capital than it is around your county courthouse today. Those of us who were around The Hill a lot learned the location of the trams, and everyone rode them.

    Unless they’ve changed rather dramatically, they used to be open, rather like the train at the St. Louis Zoo, and there was a concrete space on either side wide enough to walk. So unless the good Senator is allergic to a walk — inside, underground, heated and air conditioned — I don’t know exactly how she could have been stuck.
