Most reigns, thank God, must come to an end. But as Rep. Cynthia Davis descends into nothinghood after her unsuccessful battle with Senate incumbent Scott Rupp, the moment doesn't come without causing us a tiny twinge of despair.
We'll miss chronicling her bootylicious pat downs, her hot sex tips, her affinity for chickens en masse, and her saucy predilection for mixing guns and church.

In an unprecedented move, Davis tips her hat to us -- assuming we're part of the "left wing bloggers" who "shame and humiliate those who speak up for common sense America." Of course, it doesn't get more common-sense America than Davis, and it's so obvious she likes the attention. She gripes about how unpleasant it is to read about herself in the "socialist" blogs. But
what New Yorker would know her name without them?
It meant national attention -- far more than most of my colleagues -- even those in leadership positions. Those who live in my district may not realize that people in Kansas City, Springfield, Joplin, Columbia, New York, California, and those who watch MSNBC and Steven Colbert may know more about me than you do... People in other states would write me who read about what I am saying and accomplishing in Missouri.Davis' retrospective of her work is a bit different from the way we see it -- she counts herself as an ally of women and families (only penis-to-vagina families, obviously) -- but at least we can agree on one thing:
