37. Thoughts .... all speculation ....
Edited on Thu Sep-11-08 08:19 PM by higher class
If it's only MN ....

This move is drastic and loaded with bad publicity for all Republicans.

This is ground to throw baseballs at the Soccer Mom and McCain.

A first guess and gut feeling is that there is trouble with the finanacing of the Convention. Someone didn't get paid.

Next is that I believe that the PNAC crowd are in a deep money doo-doo crisis. Pawlenty might have volunteered the State - as a source of placing sacrificed funds in the hands of of the war lovers to pay fore more mercenaries, to fund WH, Pentagon, State, Justice legal funds as well as private individual funds, to pay off Japan or one of the other coalition partners as they are about to pull out.

Pawlenty may have an unfulfilled promise to privatize something in the State.

If this doesn't go NATION WIDE in coverage, I won't have faith in our citizens. They just can't do this in a blue State and get away with it. It appears that there will be no appearances of Palin or McCain in MN again.

I want to cry for those families.

I'm remembering something I just heard repeated - a 'belief' from the past - that MN is a good destination for poor people because of the help they can get.

Will the middle income people whether low, middle, or high middle praise this - do they really think they are going to get to keep the lapdoc, Coleman with this?
