Minnesota nice is now Minnesota mean: At the GOP presidential
debate in Iowa tonight, the two Minnesotans on the stage—Gov. Tim
Pawlenty and Rep. Michelle Bachmann—didn’t quite come to blows, but
at times they seemed awfully close.



The audience seemed possibly ready to kill questioner Byron York
after he asked Bachmann whether, as president, she’d continue to be
a "submissive” wife—as she’s
said
she is now.



Pressed about the constitutional basis
for the individual mandate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney
got snippy, and argued that it wasn't the U.S. Constitution that
mattered.



Rick Santorum literally had to remind the audience that he was
still on stage—waving his hands at one point as if to say "I’m
still here!”



There were no divisions amongst the Republicans about tax hikes,
though: Every single one raised their hand to signal they’d turn
down a deal that cut 10 dollars of spending in exchange for one
dollar of tax increases. Even
if it balanced the budget, and the new tax revenues came entirely
from closing targeted tax giveaways and loopholes
?
Apparently.

Minnesota nice has ALWAYS been nice to your face.  As soon as you turn your back "we" talk shit about you.  I am a little surprised it came out on national tv though.

I used to live in NYC and now I'm back home in MN.  I joined New Yorkers in MN group.  Oh wow, do they talk trash about us.  They call it Minnesota passive-agressive.  When I first moved to NYC I was a little taken by the in your face attitude but I really do perfer it to our clicky stab you in the back approach.

If you ask a Minnesotan for directions though, we will stop no matter what to help you out.
