...Missouri senator Claire McCaskill, may well skip the Democratic convention in September. For those keeping score, this brings the the number of Democrats avoiding their own party’s convention like the plague, to at least eight. Last week, Michelle Malkin reported on what she labeled the Tarheel trainwreck: The coming DNC disaster:
…at least seven Democratic officials will skip Obama-palooza: New York Democratic Reps. Bill Owens and Kathy Hochul; Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Mark Critz; three endangered Democratic politicians from West Virginia, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, Sen. Joe Manchin, and Rep. Nick Rahall; and Utah Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson.
The Democratic boycotters have dinged Obama on everything from his election-year illegal alien amnesty power grab to his failed jobs programs to his destructive war on coal. While “Forward!” may be the official Obama campaign slogan, “Back Away!” is quickly becoming the dissenting Democrats’ rallying cry.
And then there were nine. Turns out Montana's faux conservative Democrat, Jon Tester, just bailed out as well.
Oh, and another reason that I don't trust the polls: the fact that Obama is barely beating unknown convicted felons in Democrat primaries. You know, that can't be a good sign.
