I have no problem at all with my tax money going to pay for free contraception. As a matter of fact, I'd willingly pay more for that. Much more prudent than waiting and then paying to feed, house, supervise and educate unwanted children at public expense. ALL babies should be WANTED.

I nominate the name EEA party. For "Embarrassed Enough Already." Anyone but Emmer, who makes Bachmann seem almost reasonable.

In her case, "free speech" is just the inevitable devolution of "talk is cheap." I don't think the impartiality of a judge would rest well on her.

Put a bat house on the north side of your own house, up under the eaves! Put a couple of Purple Martin birdhouses on your property! Bats and Purple Martins eat more mosquitos than you can imagine. Also, never kill a dragonfly - another mosquito predator. Remember we have friends out there who are on OUR side.

I find the "nude recreation" booth as refreshing as the NRA booth is depressing. Something for everyone!

There's nothing easier to direct than light. Any light from Target Field that's going UP into people's windows is misdirected.

Then later on there was always the Weather Ball on top of it to tell us what was happening. Not that we could see it from home, of course, but WCCO would always tell us "The Weather Ball is Green, No Change Foreseen!" or "The Weather Ball is White, there's snow tonight!" Love the...

He just wrote it as a sort of reflex action to reading anything even mildly unfavorable to the GOP. Just a little dribble of what used to be sound and fury, certainly signifying nothing.

I was thinking "Oh boy, the Minnesota Republicans are embarrassing us again" but really, compared with Michele Bachmann's daily froth and dribble, this is nothing. Maybe they'll all go together. That would be nice.
