The referendum was on changing the constitution, not support of gay marriage.

It's a distinction swing district Democrats hoped their constituents wouldn't notice, but which they are preparing to pay for with their jobs in November.

While your observations are correct in the main, you discount the fact that government hiring constitutes the majority of jib gains.

Admittedly, I have no figures to back it up, but anecdotal experience and lefty politicians tell me the public sector should and does favor minority hiring.

Also, given Minnesota's national prominence in the academic achievement gap between white and black students I wonder how valuable the Economic Policy Institute's data is for the Twin Cities...

While I do appreciate your lazer focus on McFadden, I wonder if you might get around to asking Franken about his positions. Obamacare would be a wonderful place to start.

....Especially since he's decided not to debate the merits before the public.

I've seen Frankens web site. It's a campaign ad. I want him to answer for his actions, and I'm not alone.

He can either answer now, or in November.

I agree that if by "better" school system you mean to say "more expensive", your point certainly holds up. But for those of us that believe better means more effective your observation makes little sense.

If there's anyone better than shredding through lefty BS than Walker's campaign manager, I'd love to meet him.

Just one more clue as to how smart Stewart is; I almost feel bad for Nolan.

All the hate being piled on Wisconsin is hilarious. This winter, driving on 94 one couldn't help but notice that the washboard ride gave way at the border to perfectly plowed roads in 'Sconnie. And this summer the pothole hell ends at the same spot.

Minnesota leftists are crowing about a unemployment rate that is slightly lower than Wisconsin's despite the fact that more than 3/4 are government jerbs or temporary while Wisconsin is rebuilding a robust manufacturing economy.

Wisconsin elected Walker. Twice. And they'll do it again because everyone but the singing lunatics in Madison approve of his work.

Hate him, hate them.

Clearly education doesn't automatically ensure intelligence.
