Carnahan: What the eff did he just say!?
Russ Carnahan is apparently livid with his fellow St. Louis congressman, Lacy Clay, over redistricting in Missouri.

As recently as April 1, Carnahan and Clay issued a joint press release condemning the plans drawn up by Republicans in Jefferson City to wipe Carnahan's political district off the map. (The Republican-controlled state legislature must eliminate one of Missouri's nine congressional districts following the 2010 census.)

But was Carnahan and Clay's April 1 show of solidarity more like an elaborate April Fools joke?

That's what Politco.com seems to imply in a report out today. The online site says that Carnahan was recently overheard telling Clay "[screw] you" and sarcastically adding "thanks for your help" after Clay allegedly declined to call Governor Jay Nixon to demand that he veto the proposed congressional map -- which, btw, keeps Clay's district firmly in tact.

Politico.com adds that Clay and Missouri's other Democratic congressman, Emmauel Cleaver of Kansas City, are no longer taking Carnahan's phone calls. Now Carnahan may be forced to run in Todd Akin's decidedly Republican district of west St. Louis County.

In related news, recording artist Cee Lo Green today announced his unequivocal endorsement for Russ Carnahan.

Missouri is in a crisis and we must not lose focus on the most important issue of our election. Jay Nixon the Governor has the power and seat to make changes where they count. Education, tax revenue, and jobs are first! When can we realize that politics is sometimes not about the people? As far as redistricting it's another way to divide us. Focus on the focus...Don't Vote for Jay Nixon 2012! Thank you...

God deliver us from the village idiot hayseed from Rolla. He's about as wholesome as a dead puppy in a pet store window. I wanna puke everytime I see him on tv. He always looks like he's stoned and when he speaks he's a cross between Tiny Tim and Janet Reno. Thankfully, it does appear he will be without a district and never elected again. Now he's thinking of running for Todd Akin's seat. When pigs fly!

I used to live in Carnahan's district. so, now I guess it's Clay's. Big deal-just another moonbat statist political hack with no concern for the constituents other than getting reelected. You'll never notice the difference because there isn't one. Now I live in Massachusetts-moonbat headquarters!
