Sorry, Eric. I’ll go sit in the corner now and feel shame.
When did you get stoned? Or at least turned to …
That was my initial reaction, too. But then notice that he didn’t agree to any specifics. It sounded to me more like he was pandering.
Careful, Dan …
Ease up on the name-calling.
Great points, Mac. The article I cited notes that we need to follow the money which is why i linked to it.
No, it was not a push poll. A push poll only asks one or two leading questions such as the ones House Majority PAC asked at the end of this poll.
This is legit poll that also tested messages that House Majority PAC and probably ABM will end up using against Kline. We now know that Kline is weak and how to hit him.
It wasn’t broadcast on the radio. He’s lost his show. It was a podcast.
At the least, it’s sedition.
Last I’d heard, Brian Barnes was still going to run. But i haven’t heard much of anything out of CD3. Lemme ask around.
I am shocked, I tell you shocked, that Neal Baxter isn’t included in this list. And what happened to Captain Jack Sparrow!?!
I demand a recount!
Once again, thank you for bringing the stupid to MPP. Keep bringing it … this blog wouldn’t be the same without you.
Of course you are welcome to use our material and cite us as the source.
We always link to our sources and appreciate the consideration.
I did. Scary innit?
But she’s NEVER “done” legislation. It’s only been bloviating. But up until the ethics scandals, they rarely if ever covered her.
Emmer will likely follow her model if he gets in. Will our media cover him?
And if we can anticipate the future by looking at past behavior, I am not confident at all that our media will follow this race or the Republican that will likely win it.
And I’m going to believe an anonymous right winger like yourself? You betcha …
Of course their behavior makes sense to you … you are one of them. The MNGOP doesn’t need enemies …
Thanks, Josh. Well said.
Under RCV election rules, the winner will have 50% +1 vote.
Ranked Choice Voting is the familiar runoff process done in a single election. Under the system, all ballots are tallied according to first-place choices. In a single-winner election, if one candidate wins a majority (50% + 1) among all first-place votes, that candidate is the winner.
If not, the candidate with the fewest first-place votes is eliminated and the ballots for this candidate are redistributed among the remaining candidates according to the second choices on those ballots. The process continues until one candidate has picked up a majority of votes.
Good point and, as you probably know, I really want filibuster reform. But …
That’s well and good, but that cloture vote was our only chance of defeating FISA changes that allowed warrantless wiretapping and telecom immunity. The only chance to stop the United Police States of America from eliminating all of our privacy and most of our civil rights. Klobuchar knew that the votes were there to pass the bill if it got past the cloture vote. Her excuse was utter bull****.
Oh, right. Forgot that bit. That kinda makes it worse that a Dem-controlled Senate passed the FISA dismemberment, dunnit?
I wish that Graves isn’t done, too, Dog Gone. Unfortunately, I’m more pessimistic. I think this is the last the DFL will hear from Graves.
I refactored my calculations and this increases Emmer’s numbers by a mere 0.11%. He actually pulled 53.92% in the new MN-06.
Yes, Emmer’s numbers are actually even better without a conservative-leaning IP candidate. But let’s not go there, eh? We’d be entering ‘abandon-all-hope’ territory.
Our sole hope is Emmer is too much of a teabagging knucklehead to have learned a thing. Consider how difficult the GOP reboot is going …
LOL! Totally …
Considering how much she bucked the party, I doubt anyone in the Republican Party convinced her. So I’m with you on your other suggestion.
Also, she outspent Graves 12-1.
The reason I have hope is the MN Republicans, controlled by the Ron Paul supporters, won’t allow a candidate with a chance to be nominated. Consider that they nominated Tom Emmer and Kurt Bills for the last major races in this state.
