Sen. Claire McCaskillClaire Conner McCaskillDems seek to chip away at Trump’s economic record The Hill's Morning Report — Sponsored by PhRMA — Republicans see some daylight in midterm polling Trump urges anti-abortion advocates to rally in November MORE (D-Mo.) surprised Ana Marie Cox with one of her recent tweets:
Nothing better than beating the Cubs. Well, maybe winning the World Series. 4-3 Cards win.

Cox was shocked--SHOCKED!--to here such blasphemy. She tweeted a series of laments:
Tragic realization that @clairecmc roots against the Cubs making me reconsider her status as Coolest Politwit That Isn't Chuck GrassleyCharles (Chuck) Ernest GrassleyFormer US attorneys urge support for Trump nominee Dem leaders request bipartisan meeting on Russia probe Overnight Health Care — Sponsored by PCMA — House passes 'right to try' drug bill | Trump moves to restrict abortion referrals MORE.

I said this to @lehmannchris and be nodded solemnly. RT @xzqx How can you root against the Cubs? That's like rooting against Bambi.

@clairecmc roots against the Cubs? Really? Everything I thought was true suddenly is drawn into question...

McCaskill seemed taken aback by Cox responses. McCaskill, of course, represents Missouri, which is hope to the St. Louis Cardinals. Isn't it logical--not to mention politically expedient--to vote for the cards? McCaskill responded:
A little worried about @anamariecox. I feel her slipping away.Not quite sure what to do about it, but know it doesntincludelovinthecubs.

Both McCaskill and Ana Marie Cox are top notch tweeters, we might add. Twitterr Room heartily recommends following both.
