“It shouldn’t have been a surprise to anyone that I would use any means possible to get this done.” Sen. Loudon

The Missouri Political News Service hates to kick a guy when he’s down, especially when we generally agree with his party’s governing philosophy, but it’s John Loudon – so what the hell, why not! We’re told that anyone who has ever spent more than three minutes with the guy knows he is one of the most phony, arrogant, and pompous people you will ever meet in your life.

How arrogant is Loudon? Instead of having contrition for his actions yesterday, Loudon unbelievably blames his own colleagues for missing his secret midwifery insertion! “The fact that it was missed was more on them than on me.”

Here’s more arrogance. This is what he said last year in an interview with The Radical Republican regarding why he should win the Republican State Auditor primary:

“I think I make the best nominee for Republicans for two simple reasons. I believe your readers have the sophistication to get this. Number one, I am the only candidate who can raise money.”

As you’ve probably read by now, the man who never misses an opportunity to promote himself, his Christianity, or his 18th century causes, (midwifery???) was caught being deceitful to his colleagues yesterday. He has such a passion for midwifery that last month, when Sen. Jack Goodman, a Mount Vernon Republican, was pushing a bill designating the crayfish as the official state invertebrate, Loudon offered an amendment that would have made the Missouri Medical Society the official invertebrate “due to their unwillingness to compete with a bunch of midwives.”

Isn’t there a Bible verse that say’s something about “What is hidden will eventually be brought into the light….?” There is a disturbing pattern evolving here with Mr. Loudon. Remember last year during his auditor’s campaign when Loudon said he had a law degree?

In an ironic twist from the Radical Republican interview, Loudon seems to be describing himself:

“A politician can fool people for a few years. After a while, however, the system has a way of really showing the heart of a person. Was that guy looking out for us, or is he looking out for himself?”

We agree 1,000%!
