    was in court earlier this week as the Governor's lawyer, pleading the case for critical functions to be continued. (Yes, that is the SAME David Lillehaug who was the captain of the Al Franken Senate Recount legal team that brought home that senate seat after just a couple of diaries here.....:-)! )

    At a presser afterward Lillehaug said, "Those people who like to say the government doesn't do anything for them are about to find out just what the government DOES do for them."

    The State Parks closed on the busiest weekend of the year, starting today, displacing 60,000 people, is only the beginning.

    Shalom.

    •  Must agree. Well said by you and Lillehaug. (0+ / 0-)

      The very best strategy the Dems could use now is "give them enough rope."
