    it's considered the place where the snobish elite of MN move to be walled off (by super expensive real estate) from the rest of the state.  

    •  Rest of Emmer's resume doesn't speak of privilege (3+ / 0-)

      BC? Alaska? Mitchell Law? Shouldn't someone like that have grown us somewhere in a working class St. Paul neighborhood?

      The US Senate is begging to be abolished. Let's fulfill its request.

        I tried hard NOT to pay attention to the man so I don't know. His grandfather started a lumber business that he inherited.

        Just speculating but Emmer is Roman Catholic. He and his wife have 7 children. If he was raised in a likewise large family perhaps the Edina wealth had to be broken up into several many pieces? Just a guess though, I don't know.

        to me someone living in Edina would really not care much about the rest of Minnesota.  it's a sterotype i know, but it's not far from being accurate.
