It's official: Dick Day steps down as Senate Minority Leader

Senator Dick Day officially stepped down as minority leader today. There wasn't any move to oust him; he just had enough.

Despite being from Owatonna, Day was obsessed with transportation in the metro, railing against ramp meters and light rail (he was the impetus behind the study that shut down the ramp meters several years ago). He also loved the idea of putting slots at Canterbury Park. Today, though, he apparently talked more about NASCAR than anything else.

Now the question is who will take his place. May I nominate Senator Michelle Bachmann? Her unique brand of conservativism will really go far in putting a moderate face on the Republican party. Plus, she can bring her "God hates gays" fan club wherever she goes!
