I suppose I have only myself to blame for reading this story. Even so, Joe, aren't there more interesting stories today? Maybe a worthwhile Canadian initiative?

The "dirt on his son" was that his father intervened with local law enforcement to keep Junior out of trouble.

I know that doesn't fit the narrative of poor, victimized Republicans, but facts are stubborn things.

A memory of a long-ago article in the Strib, telling how Senator Grams was able to call the Anoka County Sheriff at home late at night when his son was arrested.

Personally, I don't/didn't fault Senator Grams for what he did. I think it's what any parent would do if they had direct, personal access to a top law enforcement official. There were a lot of other, legitimate reasons to vote him out of office.

Whatever his reasons for doing so, Governor Dayton was a teacher in New York City. He did not work for the city, but for an agency something like Teach for America:

Blame Obama, and recess for campaigning?

MacDonald said nothing of her record, and the endorsing committee did not care. She is a licensed attorney who is willing to indulge in the farce of a partisan endorsement for what should be a non-partisan job. After that, she showed up at the endorsing convention and mouthed all the shibboleths about God, the Bible, and the Constitution. The fact that she is an unrepentant nutjob who blames everyone else for her problems would have come out before, if the party were truly serious about...
