With Akin Out, Five Wildcard Politicians to Watch in Missouri

3. Jamilah Nasheed--State Senator and Unrepentant Hard-Ass
Jennifer Silverberg
Coming to a state senate near you.

Jamilah Nasheed didn't go in to politics to make friends. A former convict and community organizer, Nasheed doesn't always have the politick ways of (some of) her peers. The lady speaks her mind and more often than not, there's someone out there who doesn't like what they hear.

From "I'm black before I'm a Democrat" to calling a colleague a "thug" on Twitter (which to be fair, was just a response to name-calling he initiated), Nasheed has a knack for truly pissing off everyone around her.

Next: Boobs! (or a pol who loves them)
