On the Internet, that is. So, when the Blunt campaign (accurately) notes that you were ““a banking executive” in Washington at the government’s Export-Import Bank,” and you argue instead that your “position in the 1990s was assistant to the chairman” – thus suggesting that you were in fact not a real “banking executive” – here’s some places that you should try to get sanitized:
- EMILY’s List. I believe that Ms. Carnahan enjoys their endorsement?
- Fired Up Missouri. Ditto.
- The archived version of the Missouri SoS website.
This would normally be a minor little matter, except of course that Ms. Carnahan seems to be quite upset that the opposition is making what is actually a widely held observation, including among her ideological compatriots. It is not exactly Roy Blunt’s – or any other Republican’s, really – fault that ‘banking executive’ is rapidly taking on connotations normally associated with ‘pond scum’…
