  •  This morning on MPR (6+ / 0-)

    they ran a story in which residents of Aitken (north central MN) were talking about this and the possibility of their rep (a Dem) voting against their wishes. The cranky old codger demographic was heavily represented, incl. this prize specimen:

    Back in downtown Aitkin, some of Radinovich's constituents certainly are upset with him, including one man who said gay people should be rounded up and shot.

    "Well, it sounds to me like (Radinovich) must be gay too. I'm totally against that," the man said. He declined to give his name.

    As you can imagine, this left me feeling kind of dispirited, and I worried that there would be Dems who quailed in the face of their more backward constituents. But now my faith in this highly awesome state is restored! On to the Senate and the governor's desk!
