    that Kelly threw himself on a grenade this year for his son's sake.

    His son is his campaigh manager and top aide, and he hasn't a Democratic cell in his body. He is aggressive and abrasive.

    Kelly transitioned his son to the neocons, where he belongs, philsophically and stylistically.

    That's why Kelly endorsed Bush.

    He didn't want to lose today. But the reason he did what he did was for his son.

    Which is kind of sweet, in a rotten sort of way.

      mfinley98,
      Who is Kelly's son, and what are his designs?
      I've just returned to St. Paul after two years in Duluth and got to  cast a very satisfying vote today, but missed something.

        I don't know his designs, but I'm guessing they are Karl Rovelike.

        At the moment, though, he is not looking Rovelike in the brains department.

          If this is correct about Ryan Kelly, the Repubs are getting a lemon. His performance couldn't have been worse. The campaign was horrendous; Ryan Kelly might just as well have taken that $million+ from Mendota Heights and dumped it in the river. I have first-hand experience of the campaign selling out one of dad's long-time friends with a stupid, stupid mistake. I know of one multi-generational business that will suffer terribly for the kid's mistakes.
