Or you'll get fired!
The Republican/Tea Party wingnuts won majorities in the state House and Senate in 2010. (thanks alot 'stay at home' non-voters).
But when thier campaign of jobs, jobs, jobs turned into a legislative agenda of ALEC, ALEC, ALEC, they built thier own political gallows.
You can't pull that crap in Minnesota.
We fired em.
Both state houses will now have a Democratic majority (I'm so happy for Gov. Dayton).
Both the 'voter suppression' and the 'discrimation in the constitution' amendments have failed.
You can't pull that crap in Minnesota.
We up and fired em.

I've never been prouder of Minnesota than I am tonight.

Stand and applaud America. Democracy works!

We up and fired em!

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.
