Oh those silly repubs.. This week in St. Paul, MN at our state capitol, the phones in the desks of our DFL state senators started ringing during debate of a bonding bill.  The calls came from outside lines (as opposed to what the phones are usually reserved for, which is conferring senator-to-senator during session).   Turns out that someone gave a confidential list of Senate numbers to GOP phone thugs who called "citizens", told them about how horrible the bill was and asked them if they wanted to talk to their tax-raisin' DFL senator.  If they said yes, they were tranferred right to the DFL Senator's phone on the floor of the senate.  Bullies- 15 calls got through.  Not a lot, but it is the number of slimy tactics that you think can't get slimier, then they do.  

I am so sick of their leaders laughing off serious breaches of protocol, decorum or in many other instances, that little thing called the law.  And they look so chubby and happy as they justify it.

Who wants to answer this question???

"Mr. Michael Brodkorb ought to consider what his standards are for decorum," Pogemiller said to members of the Capitol press corps, "Is he the Republican party operative when he's standing on the Senate floor? Or is he an employee of the State Senate?"

Man these guys are obnoxious.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
