For the second time in two years, Jay Nixon has won a landslide election. Though something tells me da' governor isn't going to put this one on his resumé.

Daily RFT readers this weekend overwhelmingly elected Nixon as their "Ass Clown of the Week." Nixon earned a whopping 53 percent of the vote -- beating his nearest challenger by a 30 percentage points.

The governor earned a nomination for two of his back-room dealings last week: 1) conspiring to overthrow the power structure of the St. Louis Police Board, and 2) scuttling the Tour of Missouri as part of political grudge match with Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder.

Thanks everyone for playing. Back at you Friday with a new round of nominees.
