Rather, the Republicans have proved that they're SPEND THEN BORROW* (*MAYBE), with the MAYBE coming from the fact that they don't want to raise debt ceiling to borrow to pay for the spending they approved.

Let's see how that policy works in the general election.

Won't be many on the box, then.

Nothing better to invigorate the mining industry in Minnesota that a dose of free-market steel from China for the XL line?

Stagnant wages--absolutely nothing to do with a world market in virtually everything.

And whether Polymet employs 500 people or none, it's success depends entirely upon the world market for what they mine.

Poor education outcomes just disappear when you get to choose the most motivated students and parents.

Nothing like having that pesky evidence, eh?

Imagining invisible controlling thought waves from the top of the executive branch to some IRS functionaries requires a leap of faith that fortunately is not yet considered proof.

Keep on looking and hoping.

Sue the executive branch because it delayed a provision of a law that Republicans wanted delayed or prevented in the first place.

And then, if they win in a year or two, the delayed provision will be in full effect.

And they'll still be trying to remove health care from 11 million people.

Hey, if they were " totalitarians", they would just lock up or shoot their opponents.

It's a pathetic flip-flop that Republicans engage in--weekly changing from claims the "most incompetent administration" and "masterminds evilly scheming".

Why not admit it--the Republicans want totalitarianism, because they certainly have proved with Clinton and Obama that can't accept their losses in elections.

That's how it goes, from "for the good of the country", to dictatorship....

I have to disagree, when so much of media is orientated toward "messaging" in the service of power, it is entirely critical that the "facts" be enforced with serious penalties.

If plagiarism is a firing offense, lying should be more so.

Why let facts get in the way of spin?

Looks like the unemployment in those northern counties are improving along with the rest of the state. And they are doing better than a lot of other red states.

....there is no polling to really justify the ratings change, but I can tell you that there's a bit of buzz in the universe of the politically-obsessed that the Minnesota race will tighten up....

Gosh, would we be talking about Sabato's predictive powers if he didn't pull that out of his "rear pocket" at this time? Maybe Sabato is just feeling lonely right now.

Candidates after endorsement and with a pocket full of big money certainly rate higher that un-endorsed, poor...
