Minnesota wrap-up

With results coming in, the Senate race is too close to call. (UDPATE: Recount. Now lawyers get to pick our next Senator)

It appears that Michelle Bachmann has held her seat, and that Erik Paulsen has defeated Ashwin Media to hold the seat vacated by Jim Ramstad. Alas, Jew-hating lowlife Keith Ellison gets to keep doing what he's doing.

Incumbent judges won down the ticket in my district. Memo to the Lake Calhoun latte sippers: When you're sitting in your living room munching on a ball gag, watching some fervent Obama supporters commit their 15th and 16th felonies on your wife (or mistress, or significant other...), don't complain to me.

Alas, Minnesota has passed the "Everything is Happiness" amendment, requiring us to pay more money for everything in an effort to spend more money on everything. To reward Minnesotans for their new sales tax, my wife and I will be making our Christmas purchases in South Dakota this year. As if my wife's hometown of Aberdeen weren't growing enough already.

Speaking of which, our city passed the "support our failed schools" referendum, which means that my wife and I will be paying $200 more per year so that Minneapolis schools can buy more flat-screen TVs for it's illiterate student body. All the more incentive to leave our home (and the school district) to the rats. Foreclosure was never a more affordable decision. Who would want to raise kids in this city?

Once again, I'm glad that Minnesota got it right in the Presidential election. For the record, though the outcome is not yet certain, and may yet go to the SNL comedian, I predicted Coleman would retain his Senate seat last Friday. Long live the former Democrat/Independent.

If Bachmann can keep her seat? So can Ellison. You routinely call him an anti-semite, but I have never seen the evidence of this-other than some prior association with whatshisface in the Nation of Islam. Do you have quotes or writings from Ellison that show *he* himself is an anti-semite?

18 years of working with the Nation of Islam, while absurdly claiming that the organization is not anti-semitic.

If you want to pretend that "whatshisface" isn't an anti-semite, or that one can be among his adherents while not holding to this view, you may do so. I don't have your naive button.
