Katherine Kersten's Korner

In today's kolumn, Kersten and I pretty much agree. Yes, you read that right.

Wingnuttia level: 2 (minor levels of insanity)

Okay, so I had to ding her for comments like "In countries where government's job is to provide all good things, the economic system -- paradoxically -- often proves incapable of delivering them." That's not necessary, nor accurate. However, you are probably unsurprised to hear that I agree with her on the stadium issue. I also agree with her on the Mall of America Phase II government handout: Just Say No!

It's pretty sad that Kersten is more of a true conservative than Governor Pawlenty, Speaker Sviggum, and many other so-called Republicans in the legislature. Is this something to be proud of?

A couple other stadium-related things. First, this column by Chris Bowron hits the nail right on the head.

Second, John Marty is a flip-flopper. It doesn't matter if he is going to vote against the Gophers bill in the end. Is he planning on arguing that "I voted for the stadium bill before I voted against it"? Second, it doesn't matter how worthy the Gophers stadium is; I've expressed by apathy towards it many times. What is sad, though, is that Marty, for no reason, just switched his vote and got nothing for it. If that was the plan, why didn't he do it earlier and save time?
