When did MDE become Priscilla Lord Faris for US Senate?
Seriously! I read MDE this morning and could have confused it with the PLF website.MDE working for both Paulsen and Faris.
I saw her campaign ad on KARE 11 this morning...not impressed. Not impressed at all, especially with a campaign that is running their message through a Republican blogger.
She may be right on a lot of her criticism of Franken. However, why didn't she get into the endorsement race then? Why not make this pitch to the delegates?
I heard the US Senate race pitched as a football analogy.
The quarterback has led the team inefficiently for the majority of the game and the team is losing, losing big. Is it time to go with a new quarterback?
No disrespect to Brooks Bollinger or Gus Ferotte, but we won't win with a second or third string QB.
Faris has the feel of a 4th string DII quarterback right now. The "Why I'm Running" page just seems...well, whiny to me.
Al Franken does not represent Minnesota values:
His coarse humor and language is demeaning to women and minorities.
His tax problems and questionable financial transactions are not consistent with the way most Minnesotans view their responsibilities.
He has lived in New York almost all of his adult life and has moved to Minnesota just to run for office.
Most of his funding comes from his Hollywood and entertainment business contacts.
He has demeaned and insulted other Senators and office holders, the very people he will have to work with to accomplish anything in Washington.
In his own words he is an angry man, and he screams profanities and insults to those who disagree with him.
He says he would not be a good person to hold political office because he is "indecisive" and he views politics as interesting only because the election races are interesting.
He is behind Coleman by 15 points in the polls.
While there is some validity here, I have a hard time supporting someone who's online campaign presence is via a right wing blogger, former Republican Oppo Guy, MDE.
So it while looking at changing the quarterback is attractive, perhaps it's time to root for another team?
Anyone ready for an old Annandale grad? Dean Barkley?
