Republican Minnesota

Even less anti-corruption than Minnesota Republicans.

Taking Others' Credit

Jeebus, I had no idea that MDE was trying to take credit for breaking the Doran/Kiscaden story, or that anyone else was trying to give it to him. Fact is, the Post-Bulletin is the first time the story got out there, and as far as I know, North Star Politics was the first time the story was posted by a blog. At the very least, I'm positive I beat MDE to it.

 

Locked Up

Absent a real earthquake in the race (Mike Ciresi coming in, for example) it's clear that Amy Klobuchar is going to be the DFL nominee for the Senate.

 

Pawlenty's New Hairdo

I just saw Gov. Pawlenty on TV. Is he growing a mullet?

Irresponsible Debate

To George W. Bush, any debate is irresponsible debate.

Light Posting

Due to circumstances beyond my control, posting will be light for the next week or so. Sorry about that.

 

Too Late, Boys!

According to a new study, the Republicans in Minnesota's congressional delegation are voting with Bush less often than they have in the past couple of years. A real sob story for all involved, don't you think?

Unfortunately for our friendly neighborhood Republicans, the damage has already been done. Sure, Mark Kennedy's support dropped 10%, which is a fairly big deal, but it started out at ninety-seven percent! 97% is a rubber stamp - and while Republicans will whine "but McCollum!", keep in mind that, with Democrats in the minority, that number means very little. Fact is, Kennedy, Kline, and Gutknecht are still ridiculously supportive of a ridiculously bad Bush administration. Minnesotans have already seen what a miserable failure George W. Bush is - the polls show it - and Amy Klobuchar, Colleen Rowley, and Tim Walz will have the job of linking the aforementioned trio of congressmen to Bush's record. With these numbers, it shouldn't be too difficult.

This kind of thing ought to be a part of every Democratic challenger's platform. Candidates should be asking the electorate whether they want another two years of rubber stamping of the administration's corruption, malfeasance, and general misbehavior, or if they want oversight and real checks and balances. The answer is obvious.
