Wow, Missouri lieutenant governor is sure a stupid job

Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder is sorry/not sorry for billing taxpayers for hotel stays that he made while attending tea party events, ballgames and society wingdings. Kinder says he did nothing wrong but he has promised to reimburse the state treasury out of his campaign fund.

Kinder’s man-about-Missouri routine has opened up questions about his judgment. One of his campaign slogans is “Every dollar counts,” which should be amended to read: “Unless I’m hanging in Kansas City with Karl Rove, in which case taxpayers should put me up at the InterContinental.” But lurking in the background of the controversy is the inherent stupidity of the elected office that Kinder holds.
