Oh, Hilary. You know that looks worse for President Obama, right?

Sen Claire McCaskill, a frequent presence on Obama plane in 2008, skipping the Dem convention because O too toxic. Incredible.

As Twitchy reported earlier, Senator McCaskill is the latest Democrat in a red state who is choosing to skip the Democratic National Convention. Demplosion!

The President has clearly become radioactive. Distancing yourself now, Senator, is super transparent. And won’t work.

Dear Claire McCaskill: It's too late.

— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) June 26, 2012

McCaskill's close connection to Obama is baked and frosted. She can't deconstruct it now.

— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) June 26, 2012

Bingo.

The senator got it from both sides today. Twitter users were united in their disdain, albeit for different reasons.

It sure is hard to remain a Democratic when one observes the party's leaders' craven behavior. http://t.co/AB2mIaQN

@clairecmc Do you really think that skipping the DNC will help your electoral prospects? Stop caving to extreme right and stand on principle

— Darsh Suresh (@darsh5000) June 26, 2012

Extreme right? Check his poll numbers, dude.

@GOP @clairecmc You don't have to attend just vote along party lines. The GOP is attempting to smear your name in the interest of politics.

— Rod (@Rod34Man) June 26, 2012

As long as she still blindly votes along party lines, she’s A-okay!

Oh @clairecmc why aren't you going to the DNC? Come on. I really believed in you.

— emokidsloveme (@emokidsloveme) June 26, 2012

@clairecmc I'm no longer a MO voter, but I'm disappointed you're skipping the DNC. Hold true to your values and have pride in your party.

— Drew Zimmerman (@wdzimmy) June 26, 2012

Aww. Heartache!

Most see it for what it is; a move designed to try to distance herself from President Radioactive to save her own floundering political prospects.

@KLSouth @clairecmc The rats are jumping ship..

— Jim M (@ottomul) June 26, 2012

@KLSouth @clairecmc We are not fooled. Your not going to the convention doesn't make you any less liberal and wrong.

— Jeff & Sally Rucker (@StageStopLlamas) June 26, 2012

Have Dems tried to defend this as anything other than a chicken #%&$ move by @clairecmc http://t.co/3Y010IT6

this is how much trouble Claire McCaskill is in here in Missouri, she's skipping the DNC Convention, won't do her any good

@TheNewDeal @Clairecmc She is already 8 pts behind competitor. Too Bad she tried to straddle the fence regarding supporting President.

Oh, dear. Bet she wishes she hadn’t said that, huh?

Rut-roh! Is she racist?

Hi @clairecmc Me again. Say, I didn't see you skippin’ no convention when we had a white president!? #Missouri #MO #MOsen

— Kelly (@KLSouth) June 26, 2012

Senator McCaskill is now trying to backpedal.

McCaskill: if you had hard re-election,"would you go to a bunch of parties and glad-handing " or stay home to convince voters to rehire you?

— Steve Brusk (@stevebruskCNN) June 26, 2012

Um. Isn’t that exactly what President Obama is doing?

Fail.
