Is anyone else as embarrased as I am over the "Honorable" Senator from Minnesota closing his Washington DC office. I guess we know that when things get tough he bails out. Meanwhile the boys and girls in the sand boxes put on their boots, strap on flak jackets, pick up a rifle and head out on patrols with knowledge that danger truely does exist in their world.

So much for leadership!

I agree. It makes all Minnesotans look like a bunch of pussies. I suspect that he's playing to the crowd.

I agree the only reason he is in office is because he has $$. and money bought his dumbass a seat in the senate. what a disgrace

I believe that this little stunt will open the door for either Mark Kennedy or former Gov. candidate Brian Sullivan to take him head on.

Personally, I think Sullivan has a better chance. He has LOTS more money than dead-head-dayton, and has FAR more political support.

Sullivan and Kennedy have name recognition, but, Kennedy has experience. You just have to make sure that no matter what the outcome of the primaries, it doesn't leave the GOP "hobbled".

I've been in Minnesota all my life and it still baffles me as to how liberal our state is. If you get out and talk to the people that are working, you would never get that feeling, but year after year we're electing trash like Dayton.

I don't mean to be politicaly incorrect but Minnesota has a great welfare program, if you know what I mean. The unions don't help, but I think there is a fair amount of union labor that understand the "program" and are gun owners. My wife works for the "Feds" which is typicaly a liberal sorounding but she votes concervative. ????? I don't know, like the guy said though, it's embarrasing!

Ever see the blue/red map for Minnesota? The ONLY counties that go democrat are the 7 county metro and St. Louis County (Duluth). The reason is those counties contain the highest population of "people leeching off the system" for lack of a better description.

It's welfare recipients that cause this state to go Dem in almost all elections. I believe there is light at the end of the dark democrat tunnel though, with a cleanly elected republican governor, and Norm Coleman in the senate, that even though Wellstone would likely have won if he was still alive last election day, all the polls showed it was extremely close.

I think the working people of this state are sick of funding every liberal handout program, and they're voting their mind. Spread the good word. If we get more likeminded folks to the polls, maybe we can retake this state from the whiny leftist commy wienies.

I think this state is starting to come around, I attribute some of that to Joe Soucheray
and "Garage Logic" along with other talk radio on KSTP

You're right, the 7 county metro area has alot of union members that vote according to what the union wants, lots of people who live off the system, and probably the worse of them all is all the colleges (higher learning?) that fill our young people with Wellstone-ism. It is embarassing to see MN stick out like a blue island in the middle of the electoral map.

My most vivid memory of Wellstone was when the 1st Gulf War was getting ready to kick off he was crying when interviewed. My mother-in -law is retired from Metro U, you would not believe the crap that comes out of their mouths, I have a full time job trying to keep my family un-infected! Note to self: go to range and clear head.
