Claire McCaskill just can't catch a break.

In addition to a fake Craigslist ad purporting to be from McCaskill trying to unload her "damn plane" and a $32,000 bill for taxes past due on the aforementioned aircraft, Missouri's Democratic Senator now has a fake Twitter account to deal with.

The admitted parody account, @onclaire, introduces itself by claiming, "I'm just a mom. A mom who flies on private jets and tells it like I see it, even though it often contradicts what I just said." D'oh!

Some screen grabs from our snarky parodist, after the jump.
Such Swiftian satire.

Dragging the senator's wealthy husband into it? Ouch!
