Posted on 10/01/14 at 02:49 pm in response to A slow and sarcastic first McFadden-Franken debate

Hey, you can launch the boat, but that does not mean it will float; with as as many holes as Mike McFadden's has, he can count on being swamped.

Nothing can float Mike's boat.

Posted on 10/01/14 at 12:23 pm in response to McFadden goes at Franken's record in first debate

Only reason a Republican senator's percentage might seem less partisan is that cloture votes are so rare, i.e., when you block most legislation from coming to a vote and only let through the stuff that most can agree on, you can look more reasonable than you are. Mike McFadden would not be any different.

This is, like most from McFadden, an idiotic premise for ads and campaign issues.

Republicans can campaign against President Obama all they like, but about the only reason this...

Morning news shows are mostly background noise for family folks getting ready for the day, I think; like much of the news media enterprise, they beg the question of what we really get for granting the ongoing franchise that is milking whatever value there is in reaching us.

Storm info, a restaurant tip, or useless trivia is the most we can hope for in licensing these stations and their product, but it makes me wish for something like the BBC when I experience what we get instead.

Too bad there is little possible to track the PAC money, aside from MayDayPAC money of course.

Ad buys? Canvasing, push polls, etc. How does one do follow the money? I see very little reporting on money that is not tied to parties and candidates and how it compares to what has to be reported by the same.

Posted on 09/17/14 at 04:42 pm in response to Vikings: 'We made a mistake'

The only thing PreferredOne's departure from MNSure says is that they made a poor decision in undercutting the premiums of their competition.

The only systemic problem with health care in Minnesota is the meddling of most Republicans.

Would killing songbirds unnecessarily be considered a mistake for the Vikings as well?

State House Representative Phyllis Kahn suggested a while back that the value of the Vikings stadium naming rights might go down considering the bird killing probability of the reflective glass used in the design.

Child abuse, killing migratory birds, and all the other criminal behavior of the Vikings franchise just might bring the value of the team down to where reasonable owners might...

Posted on 09/15/14 at 10:09 pm in response to Vikings reinstate Adrian Peterson for Sunday's game

Oh yeah, keeping the Vikings offense on track as well is what is right and until Peterson is convicted of something or someone produces a video of him beating his son, AP is going to play because that is the way of Wilfs and the NFL.

Steal public's money to build your new stadiums so violent folks can satisfy their blood lust through watching and performing legal violence. It is certainly the right thing and they have been focused on it for a long, long time.

Don't forget 'running with scissors'.

Posted on 09/04/14 at 03:03 pm in response to Here's a Top 10 list Rep. Nolan doesn't want to be on: 'Most Vulnerable'

Republicans cannot tell the vulnerability of candidates from gullibility of the electorate as, by necessity, both are one and the same to them.

Trouble for Mills and his backers with all of their deep pockets is that the voters of the Eighth Congressional District are not nearly as gullible as they think. Every minute of ad they buy will seal their fate.

Neither Mr. Cage, nor Mr. Swift know or have spoken to Phyllis Kahn (unrelated to me), I think, a woman with whom in my twenty years in her district, I have conversed with on many issues. There is nothing wacky about her save in the minds of folks who want politicians who will serve their narrow interests. I think these sorts of ignorant comments will help Representative Kahn in this primary, so please, let these men and all others like them post some more, here.

Phyllis has always...
