If the Republicans wonder why they're losing their war on women, it's because voters can get the difference between a 12-second, soundless Youtube of a dumb sight gag with running commentary that questions women's fitness as leaders based on their gender, while praising female leaders merely for their appearance (re: Hagedorn's crack about Sarah Palin).

One of the Bemidji Pioneer staffers is patting himself on the back for fact-checking Bluestem, while claiming that the June 2014 unemployment rate is 8.7 percent.

It's not--it's 6 percent, still far, far lower than McFadden claims

A friend who grew up in Craig, Co, pointed out something about the area--it's near to Dinosaur National Monument, so the setting for Frey's presentation was near perfect.

I'm glad MinnPost is finally picking up this race. Readers can get an idea of campaign literature Frey has distributed here:

The county with the highest concentration of foreign-born residents is Nobles County, down in Southwestern Minnesota. Hennepin and Ramsey Counties follow, but then Watonwan County (South Central Minnesota) and Olmsted (not an "exurbia" of anything, but home to Minnesota's third largest city) in Southeast Minnesota.

What's up with that?

The McFeely post incorrectly states that Eric Harpel is the ex-chair of the McLeod County Republican Party. He remains chair, according to CD7 Republican party documents and other sources.
