Oh My… Obama Lapdog Claire McCaskill Will Skip DNC Convention (Updated)

Poor Claire McCaskill. She’s already paying the price for being Barack Obama’s little buddy.

(Politico)

Liberal Senator Claire McCaskill may skip the DNC Convention.
The St. Louis Beacon reported, via The Weekly Standard:

McCaskill had missed the state Democratic convention several weeks ago because her mother has been ill. She did make the party’s biggest fundraising event of the year, the Jefferson-Jackson dinner, last Friday.

McCaskill also skipped the 2004 Democratic presidential convention in Boston because she was engaged in a spirited contest for governor. McCaskill was in a difficult political position that year because she was challenging a fellow Democrat already holding the office, then-Gov. Bob Holden.

The national convention that year was held in late July, just weeks before Missouri’s 2004 gubernatorial primary, in which McCaskill defeated Holden. She lost that November to the Republican nominee, Matt Blunt.

At least half a dozen Democrats have bailed on the DNC Convention already this year. Obama is just too toxic to be seen with.

UPDATE: Senator Claire McCaskill confirmed this afternoon that she won’t be attending the DNC Convention this year.
