    No one believes me when I say Franken was a bad candidate.  The numbers show him underperforming Obama, and people make excuses.  And yet here is El Tinklenberg, outperforming Obama by a good margin and Franken by a HUGE margin in a blood-red district!

      Was a bad candidate.  But other than Tim Walz, the Dem cupboard is pretty bare up here in Minnesota (Mike Hatch anyone?  John Marty?).  Amy Klobuchar won something like 57-38%.  She is a nice pleasant Minnesota woman with a locally-famous dad, and she destroyed Mark Kennedy.  Had the Dems found another Amy K., they win easily.
