I'm eating Twinkies, which somehow is fitting given the week I've had.
I'm excited about Mark Dayton being the Democratic choice for MN Governor. He's a great person, community spirited and open leadership. Secretly, deep down inside me, I wanted Dayton to win....
I'm not so excited about Shelley Madore being the Democratic choice for MN Congressional District 2. Although it would be an improvement over John Kline, hell my dog would be an improvement over Kline (and I don't mean to insult Burrito er...or Shelley!). But with Kline's fundraising skills and the special interest mega-monies from war, health, and retail, he's probably unbeatable regardless of who gets the nod from Democrats. Still you always hope for a miracle or a major screw up. Why voters don't vote their best interest is beyond me to explain.
When I moved to Minnesota, it ranked number #2, just edged out of first by Alaska or Hawaii. Since moving...well, they started slipping...I blame myself. I'll try and do better.
The Internet has become a downright goddamn scary place to be! But have a nice weekend...If you need me, I'll be under my bed. With a gun or two. Always remember Zombies Rule #4 Double-Tap. "If you think it’s dead (technically it was before you shot it), one more makes 100% sure." I'm not sure that applies to politics but can't hurt-)
