The “Show Me” State

Email Print

Karen: Missouri has long been known as the “Show Me” state. Now we know what that means: “Show me ze political books and pamphlets in your briefcase.” “Show me how much money you haf in your vallet.” “If you do not show us zese zings, ve can handcuff you and take you to ze FBI and DEA offices downtown: zey haf far more effective means of persuading you to show us zese zings.”

What more should we expect from a state that has given us John Ashcroft, Rush Limbaugh, Harry Truman, and the Pendergast political machine of Kansas City?
