Sen. McCaskill Firing Tweets Like Machine Gun, Thanking Missouri Vets on Twitter


We here at Daily RFT love it that Claire McCaskill is so social-media savvy. At times, though, the Missouri senator can really go overboard.

Today is one of those times.

McCaskill is tweeting a personal thank you to each and every Missouri veteran suggested by her 34,000 Twitter friends. As anyone who follows McCaskill on Twitter is realizing, the number of veterans adds up to a very long list.


Umm, no disrespect to the vets, but is this the best use of our senator's time?
