For my inaugural pot/kettle edition of Blueman, we take a look at Senator Coleman's statement on Mark Olson's GOP endorsement in SD 16.
No one condones domestic violence. No one. There is never an excuse, even if one's tossing a Bible.
But how can Senator Coleman play standard bearer and cheer on the Senate Republican Caucus when Coleman himself has an "unconventional marriage"?
The Senate Republican Caucus has made the appropriate decision in rejecting the candidacy of Mark Olson. I understand there are other candidates who may remain eligible to run in the September Primary, and I would hope that they continue their efforts to become our party’s standard bearer.
Isn't that like Bill Clinton scolding John Edwards?
Coleman sides with the Senate Republican Caucus...for now.
Recall this past winter when Senator Coleman ran into some problems with the McLeod County Republican Party. Coleman responded by saying he "represents Minnesota, not just conservatives." GOP Party Chair caused problems at the State GOP Convention this year by pushing for more stringent rules which would have enabled him to exude more control over rogue BPOU's like the McLeod GOP. Coleman's fine with local control for Republicans like Mark Olson but wants state party hacks to step in to save himself from rogue county units.
The "do as I say, not as I do" Republican profile in courage at its best!
But Coleman providing marriage advice? When will Family Guy or South Park spoof this thing?
When will Larry Flynt put a million dollar bounty on Coleman's "chronic womanizing"?
