The Missouri GOP has unleashed another scathing attack on Claire McCaskill, this time focusing on her cap-and-trade positions:
* FLIP: Earlier this year, Claire McCaskill claimed in Missouri that “We’ve got to make sure that whatever policies we have, are not going to make energy too expensive for people.” McCaskill has also claimed that she has been “very clear that [she] would never vote for cap-and-trade.”
* FLOP: McCaskill told the St Joseph News-Press that she is “supportive of a cap-and-trade,” she voted for cap-and-trade and later bragged that the Senate nearly passed it, she voted twice to allow the EPA to implement a backdoor cap-and-trade scheme, and she voted to allow the EPA’s job-destroying Cross-State Air Pollution Rule to go into effect.
Here's the video:

Finally, National Journal highlights this interesting tidbit:
...Sen. Claire McCaskill has the weakest approval ratings of the Democratic senators up for reelection.
Let the circus commence...
