My First Night at MN GOP Caucuses

    Attending my first GOP caucus as a participant was an exciting experience.  I had some butterflies going in because I wouldn’t know anyone there and it was something new.  The experience was quite different from what I had expected.  I’d like to flesh out my overall impressions a little more fully.  For those who are old hands at caucuses, this may seem to be a | Read More »

We have a shooting incident in Minnesota perpetrated by three Muslim Somali immigrants but for some reason almost every single media report about the incident omits the names of the shooters, names of obvious North Africa or ethnic origin. So, the | Read More »

    Atleast someone knows what they’re doing

    Up here in the state that’s probably going to give Al Franken (!?!?!?!??!) a senate seat, atleast some knows what they are talking about. With Minnesota facing huge budget problems, Gov. Tim Pawlenty on Thursday proposed a counterintuitive solution: Cut business taxes. In his seventh State of the State address to a joint session of the Minnesota House and Senate, Pawlenty called for a smorgasbord of | Read More »

    A Call to Arms! (Coleman – MN)

    We all know about the race between Senator Coleman (R) and his challenger, former SNL comedy writer Al Franken (D).  Probably all of us know how Senator Coleman has been ahead in the count by some 700 votes, and we know how these votes keep getting chipped away at.  We probably all know that the MN Sec of State is “one of those” (read – ACORN).  But you likely | Read More »

    Minnesota Volunteers; Please Make One Last Push

    Minnesota was one state that McCain outspent Obama on ads. Many puzzled why he spent so much money there. The polls looked abyssal until last week. Now, there are more than a couple of indicators that Obama is running scared. Don’t look at exit polls. Don’t be persuaded by Eastern states. Please make a last push.

    Welcome back to swing state status Minnesota

    When Sen. Obama peaked about a month ago in polls, Minnesota seemed to move out of contention. The MN/WI/ND/SD region is known for being more pacific and anti-war than the country as a whole and McCain’s hawkishness is not as big a draw in this area. However, the last three polls show MN back in the margin of error.SUSA:Obama 47 (47)McCain45 (46)Rasmussen:Obama 46 (49)McCain 42 | Read More »
