Any chance they'll move ALL the Vikings coverage behind the paywall so I don't have to weed through the 14 Vikings stories on the home page to find the real news of the day???

Check out Mischke's column in this week's City Pages for his outstanding take on the issue!

Yes Thomas, who is this Kevin Jennings? Care to spread more of the rumors and innuendo that are being generated by the right against him?? If you have FACTS you'd like to share, please do!

Wouldn't it be great if Michele garnered embarrassingly huge piles of money from all across the country... and still lost? Tarryl's the best chance the 6th CD has for sanity and good representation in DC - hope the voters don't blow it (again!).

You've gotta love the title on the video... "Al Franken Draws The United State of America"... not only is there no Alaska or Hawaii, we're all just one big state I guess!

"He said he thinks he's in the top three of the announced Republican candidates for governor"

I'll give him that, considering the list of actual announced Republican candidates is incredibly weak... he's still an incredible long shot, and the whole being called by God thing might help with Repubs, but not the rest of the state...

Um Pat....

"Less than a month before the first scheduled game..." Today is August 5, first scheduled game is Sept 12, that's JUST OVER a month...

Bernice,

You nailed it right on the head! That pages goes on to explain that US Code spells out citizenship in detail, with specific sections relating to persons born in Hawaii (Obama) and those born in the Panama Canal Zone (McCain)...

Oh that's right... did everyone on the Republican side forget that there was a birther controversy about McCain too? That page that Bernice references explains:
