2. I like her and her MN rally.

Trump must be concerned. No nickname for Amy? He calls her.... ďAmyĒ.

3. Amy does have a sense of humor

and she is extremely smart. The only negative they could find for a right wing hit piece is her management style which would be a plus for a male. Go Amy!

12. Oh now they've taken a different approach

Various republican senators are praising her as "respectful" and "responsible" and calling attention to her willingness to compromise.


ďSheís a person of character and great ability. Sheís the whole package. Thatís probably too nice," Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) said.

They are basically saying she is "republican light" so Democrats don't vote for her. Interesting tactic for a republican.

17. Thanks!

Republicans usually are this clever, but they do know how to push our buttons and we often let them. Now this has planted a seed in some voters minds, one that says Klobuchar is too moderate for Democrats and "too nice" to be a president. That's the problem with women politicians, if they are "nice, then they are viewed as weak. If they are "tough", they are mean and shrill. They did it to Hillary for thirty years and they are ready to go after our best and brightest now.

19. They will go after any and all our candidates.

White males especially are challenged by any female.

21. And they will especially go after the

candidates they view as the greatest threat. I think we can gauge how good a candidate is by how knee-jerk and out of proportion a reaction we get from the right. Once they realized that Hillary was "inevitable", they pulled out their entire arsenal of dirty tricks, even using congress as a political tool, while receiving help from Russia as well.

This is different this time though, as we have a lot of good candidates, so they have to spread their crap around, and WE have control of the House. Meanwhile, the country seems to be ready for a strong woman candidate, so their usual female bashing isn't resonating with most of the country, much like the racist dog whistles didn't work in 2008 with Obama. The racists who couldn't handle a black man in the White House weren't enough to defeat Obama and I'm sure the insecure white males will be equally ineffective in 2020.

4. Ugh...what an idiot

It snowed so there must be no climate change. The ignorance of the right is manifest in Trump and it is astounding.

9. Wingnuts don't understand the difference

between weather and climate. Years ago I witnessed an idiot co-worker glance out the office window, note that it was an unusually cold day, and proudly proclaim that global warming is a myth. Too much exposure to rightwing media makes people stupid, and there are millions of them out there, Trump included. We're the laughingstock of the world.

10. No doubt, on all of your points!

Our country is infested with morons of this variety and, as you stated, right wing media is the source for much of this, although right wing politicians have also successfully defunded and dumbed down public education which feeds into this cycle of ignorance.

11. That should disqualify them from voting.

Our future as a species should not depend on those too stupid or lazy to learn the difference.

20. This is true. I know smart people who sound stupid because of their right wing talking points.

I know reasonable people who sound like fools because of the same reason.

5. Amy does not suffer fools......

I met Amy back in 2005 after she announced she was running for Mark Dayton's Senate seat. Her beloved father, Jim, a writer for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, was in Rochester a lot when Amy could not be there, which she was often during her csmpaign. Amy gets to Rochester as often as she could and was given a hug as well. I last saw Amy at the DFL State Convention and I asked about her dad, talked with her husband, John, and attended the Prince Party at one of the Ballrooms at the Khaler. Amy LOVES Prince.

Amy has the grit she spoke of at her announcement speech. She has credibility, a prosecutorial record in Hennipen County, as well in the Senate. She takes things head on and does not let go. She has faced down and put away people like Trump. If the Nominee going into the General, she will not back down. Amy will go toe to toe with Trump, and she will put him in his place.

8. Nice backstory & context.

Something about her, so far, tells me she can kick his butt.

7. My 4 year old MN granddaughter watched the rally

and asked, "What's democracy because Amy said we have to save it?" Then chimed in, "I'm voting for Amy."
