“Judas” Koster Receives More Endorsements

August 7th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

Trust us. We thought this story would have settled down a little by now, but to their credit, Koster’s people have been smart to keep the buzz going by timing these endorsements so soon after his switch. Could it be the same staffers who planned the ill fated Saint Louis University High School fiasco?

Turner Report:

Cass County Presiding Commissioner Gary Mallory, D-Harrisonville, will serve as treasurer for Missourians for Koster, according to an Aug. 1 filing with the Missouri Ethics Commission. Read more…

    Most of this strikes me as non-news. So the endorsements of a neighboring Democrat office holder and a local construction union are Koster’s “big news?” Yawn.

    When the campaign itself rolls around, the issue is more likely, I would think, to be the Senator’s unbridled pursuit of personal ambition over political privilege. Don’t you wonder whether, if he loses the primary, he’ll seek the nomination of the Libertarians, the Socialist Workers, or the Greens?

    Maybe this will work for Koster, and be the start of a trend. But it’s amusing to think about the laughing stock the ambitious, “me-first” Senator could become next fall in the hands of one of the better Republican admeisters. It should at least give a little comic relief to next year’s campaign-ad season.

    Correction. I meant to say personal ambition over political principle.”
