By now we all know that Gov. Jay Nixon is no fan of the Tour of Missouri and did his very best to seal its doom.

The Tour, by the way, was officially canceled yesterday, a victim of budget woes and political infighting between Nixon and Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a longtime booster of the race and Nixon's likely gubernatorial challenger in 2012.
