is the issue. She refused to be tested contrary to the implied consent law. Then she had her own test done a day later when her blood alcohol level would have naturally been back to normal and now claims that proves her innocence. Since she refused the test she has no case unless she will be arguing constitutional issues at her dui hearing. That and the wheel chair story demonstrate that she feels free to not obey Minnesota laws when she doesn't want to. Exactly how can a member of the...

If you are going to provide a link to a web site that has supporting documentation for your article make it one that can be accessed without subscription.

I have spent fifteen minutes trying to access the WSJ article without success. Big waste of time but then I'm not a rich investor like our writer. Thanks for nothing.

I think when you use lines like "taxes on steroids", you have surrendered any claim to objectivity. She cherry-picks the stats that back up her claim and ignores any contradictory evidence. I agree that smaller government and less taxation will help rich people get richer, but I don't see that helping the rest of us.

She says, "Why assume the policies of the past will be a winning combination for the future?" I say why not.

She further says, "Minnesota has many reasons to...

So, he started out defining sodomy and then went into a discussion of anal sex and how nasty and murderous it is. But he skipped the other part of his sodomy definition. So in oral sex does the secret killer enzyme cause death? And if so is it worse in homosexual versus heterosexual oral sex. If you spill it on your skin during masturbation does it cause a rash or something?

I followed all the links the other day concerning Ms MacDonald. Brodkorp had some very interesting information about how little actually went into this endorsement. I may not be recalling correctly (in a reality-based sense, so not important to a republican reader) but I think he said her resume presented to the endorsing committtee was 141 words long. Her speech to the convention was about 700. That her courtroom behavior and her behavior at her traffic stop don't alarm the quoted...

How can we expect her to uphold the law when on the court when she can't do it in her personal life (frefusing the intoxication tests) or in her work life (contempt of court to the extent of being handcuffeed to a wheel chair and spending what I read as several days in jail)?

She ain't wavin' the constitution, she's wavin' the Bible and from what I've seen of people waving the Bible in my life, they are almost all unrepentant judgemental hypocrites. Republicans and conservatives used...

Wave the Christian Bible around to emphasize their beliefs. They share some texts but the literalist Christian fundamentalists I know all say that the New Testament replaces and overrides the requirements of the Old Testament. I think it is discussed in Acts where it is decided that nonjewish converts don't need to keep all the laws and restrictions of the Jewish converts. By the way I believe that Muslims also believe in the first five books of the Old Testament. I assume Allah is...

So are the CEO and all the top level people moving to Ireland? Or will they just move all the low level positions, hire some minimum wagers to answer the phones and transfer the calls to the CEO's yacht on the St. Croix? Thirty years ago when I was early in my career I thought of Medtronic as an ideal place to work. Now, not so much.

The Star Trib had a great article about the problems of the GOP-endorsed nominee for the Minnesota Supreme Court. I hope you didn't point it out here in the Glean because you are preparing a longer article about it. Since Democrats don't endorse judge candidates it is fun to see what sort of candidates the GOP can present.

With her attitude and temperment I'd hate to run in to her in an open carry state.
