And there are too many (i.e. more than zero) religious conservatives in Missouri. They are somewhat balanced by religious moderates, and on the whole the neo-con contingent in Missouri doesn't have free reign.

But you might note that, before John Ascroft gained his national.. er.. reputation, the citizens of Missouri knowing voted for a dead man rather than elect Ascroft to the U.S. Senate. There's hope for Missouri, and as I mentioned in a comment above, sometimes is easier for me to live with some of the antics of the other side than to tolerate the bad moves of my own side. At least the stupid things the other side does in Missouri are somewhat restrained, here. Kansas has been a little worse, in that regard.
