Roy Blunt stopped in Columbia on Monday to visit with women who support his candidacy in spite of the fact he tossed aside the mother of his children for a Washington glamor lady.

"Women for Blunt" gathered at Moresource, a woman-owned business, to meet with the U.S. Senate hopeful, who left his wife of 35 years to be with a tobacco lobbyist. Blunt and Wife No. 2, the former Abigail Perlman, are regulars on the D.C. party scene.



The relationship between Blunt and Perlman got off to an appalling start. In 2003, The Washington Post reported that Blunt tried to package a gift for Philip Morris inside the bill creating the Department of Homeland Security. Perlman worked for Altria, P.M.'s parent company.

At the time, the two lovebirds were not public about their relationship, which The Post delicately described as a "close personal" one. Blunt married Perlman later that year, a mere six months after his divorce became final.

Party affiliation forgives almost all sins. Two name-brand Republicans -- Catherine Hanaway, a former U.S. attorney and speaker of the Missouri House, and Renee Hulshof, the co-host of a radio program in Columbia

and the wife of former U.S. Rep. Kenny Hulshof -- hosted the Women for Blunt event.

At the Gals for Roy shindig, the intellectually sloppy Blunt complained about deficits and said he wanted to extend the Bush tax cuts, which were deficit-financed.
