Larry - I spent the last 14 years in MN. I know exactly what it is like. Let's not forget that Minnesota gave us Keith Ellison AND Al Franken AND Betty McCollum AND Amy Klobuchar!
When you spend money on green roofs over police and fire protection, when you spend money on Trees and shrubbery instead of roads and bridges, your priorities as a City, a county AND a state are well screwed up beyond ANYTHING. And never forget that the bonding bills ALL ORIGINATE in the Minnesota House of Representatives which is held by who???? Say it with me kids....THE DEMOCRATS!

Larry - spoken like a true DFLer (democrats to you non-Minnesotans). You imply that property taxes went up under T-Paw as a result of his pushing stuff on the local level. What utter bull! The cities, counties and school districts had more to do with that than anything the state or the Feds "dictated"! They built massive monuments to themselves (see the Prior Lake Savage High School for example) and then cry because they don't have the money in the budget to teach our kids math! Again - utter bull!
T-Paw did a very good job in the interview and as a conservative in a very liberal state. The one thing that the interview touched on is just how personable T-Paw is. He sits down and listens to people who approach him on issues and takes their concerns into account. He will connect with voters in Iowa and New Hampshire easily.
As a conservative he is the real deal. Yeah I know he had the cigarette tax/health impact fee - something I hammered him hard on. But all in all he is the real deal - fiscally and socially. Given the choices we have in front of us today it's an easy choice - T-Paw all the way.

ROFLOL - I read that first part Rick and I thought I was reading my husband. I have heard that rant many a time in the past.
Best wishes to you and yours in the coming new year.

Oh man, I feel your pain. When I was in MN we had MediaCom for our cable ONLY. When the time came for us to get high speed internet, the Logical Husband suggested we talk to MediaCom. After five minutes of hysterical laughter on my part, I said I could not (for business reasons) trust my internet connection to a company with the service record that MediaCom had (our cable was down half the time). Their service in MN was so poor that they had been sued by our town several times.
Fortunately we did have a choice as our local telecom's switching office was a whopping 5 blocks away from our house!
You have my condolences.

â€œGooseâ€ is far too kind of an adjective, Rick."
If it's any consolation Karen, that was not Rick's adjective of first choice! However, I live in a PG13 home so.....

Rick - I agree 100%. I posted something on Michelle Malkin's post about getting fired up and I said something similar and then sent it off to the discussion groups that I belong to and one guy wrote back "how dare you lecture me!" yet all along he had be lecturing us about how the GOP has deserted conservatives and all conservatives need to just stay home on election day.
I refuse to stand idly by. I will fight on and yet some conservatives are perfectly happy to just roll over and die because they didn't get their way....
