I get the feeling that he's safe, by fair means or foul... mostly foul.

Ahh, Minnesota is full of German socialists from way back.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

He should have never been elected in the first place which shows how powerful name recognition is in politics. 88888cool
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

They also have enough planted in cemeteries for quick access should they need them, too. :whistle:

I don't need no stinkin ID! That's racist!
 
You smell like beer. Did you just buy beer?
 
Yeah, so what?
 
Did you have an ID to buy the beer?
 
Yeah, so what?
 
So it is OK to show ID to buy beer or cigarettes but it is racist to ask for ID when you vote?
 
Yeah...what the hell man!
 
You a Racist!!
 
 
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

Interesting.  I had brought up Franken on another thread.  Minnesotans are a peculiar bunch at times but I sense they are growing tired of their novelty candidates.  Franken has shown very little value except to the most strident believer.  A decent opposition candidate ought to unseat him.  However, Coleman and Pawlenty have declined to run and the rest of potential candidates seem weak to me.  Chip Cravaack might be a possibility. 

And thank God Bachmann declined.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev
