Other news

Despite how hard Governor Pawlenty is ramming this casino down the state's throat, even the supposed beneficiaries aren't biting. The Red Lake band has decided not to support a plan that includes a racino.

Also, over the weekend Rod Grams gave up on his Senate bid. I wonder if Dick Cheney or Karl Rove made the call, and what they offered him in return.

Who saw this one coming! Was he ever even in this race? Grams did make some good comments about the messed up state of the Republican party endorsement process though.

If you're interested I have a few posts on this over at mnpublius.blogspot.com (shameless plug)

I don't think anyone needed to give Roddy a call; he was never a threat to Kennedy as Pawlenty would have been to Coleman. Grams just finally faced up to the reality that he would've got his ass kicked inside-out, and scampered off, saying, "Yeah, well, I just didn't want to hurt the guy, ya know? Didn't want to divide the party. Yeah, that's it."

Oh, this reminds me, in the "Irony is Dead Department," Mark Kennedy has a link to a news article on his website under the hyperlink, "National Democrats Dictating to Minnesota Democrats?"

This is after Cheney's open intervention in Pawlenty v. Coleman. This is after the open intervention of Pawlenty, Coleman, Eibensteiner, et al, on Kennedy's own behalf. Having this all out in the open and well-known to the public, he goes ahead and condemns the Democrats for the same thing.

All right, so Kennedy's a hypocrite. Big surprise there. But that's not even the whole story. If you read the text of the story Kennedy links to, it's an article about how EMILY's List is declining to take sides in the Klobuchar-Wetterling contest. Yes, that's right, the exact opposite of dictating an outcome.

What's truly amazing is how stupid Kennedy and the GOP must think their supporters are for them to do things like this.

Well . . . they've been doing stuff like this for years. So, I guess there's only one real conclusion we can draw.
