Claire McCaskill Gives Karl Rove a Wave at St. Louis Airport


Okay, so we just posted an item about Claire McCaskill. But this is just too good to pass up, and worthy of two McCaskill posts back-to-back.

The U.S. Senator from Missouri tweeted at 12:15 p.m. today that she just passed Karl Rove at Lambert St. Louis International Airport.

Given Rove's work with American Crossroads, the conservative 527 organization that's currently running nasty ads about McCaskill on Missouri television station, you'd think that the senator might have extended Rove the middle finger. Instead, she extended a cordial greeting (at least according to her account below).

No response to their airport run-in yet via Karl Rove's Twitter feed.
