By now we all know that Gov. Jay Nixon is no fan of the Tour of Missouri and did his very best to seal its doom.

Click the screenshot below to see candidate Nixon in September 2008 mocking the bicycle race and poking fun at its participants -- in particular, Belgian riders.

The Tour, by the way, was officially canceled yesterday, a victim of budget woes and political infighting between Nixon and Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a longtime booster of the race and Nixon's likely gubernatorial challenger in 2012.
