JOHN KLINE STEPS IN A PILE PILE OF CRAP-- ASKS UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA STUDENTS THE WRONG QUESTION
Last year Blue America raised over $22,000 from 1,065 online donors in a bid to replace far right extremist John Kline (MN-02) with former FBI-agent Coleen Rowley, a progressve Democrat. It was one of the saddest moments on an otherwise jubilant night when Kline managed to squeak through with 56% of the vote. I pray Coleen takes him on again. Meanwhile, he's been taking on himself. He recently did a townhall meeting that included a q&a session with college students at the University of Minnesota. Take a look at the video. I bet he wishes he stuck to answering questions instead of asking one.
UPDATE: COLEEN STILL FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT-- FRANKEN TOO
A few minutes after posting this video, I got two messages from Minnesota. One was from Coleen telling me she had posted a piece on Kline at the Huffington Post this morning and I'd like to recommend that everyone interested in learning about the Republican strategy for endless war in the Middle East read it. The other was from my pals at the Minnesota Monitor reporting that Al Franken's senate campaign raised $1.3 million from more than 10,000 contributors in the first quarter. Very healthy.
UPDATE: AND IT ISN'T JUST STUDENTS KLINE IS SHORT-CHANGING
Our friends over at Inside Minnesota Politics point out Rep. Kline has also been a phony and hypocrite when it comes to veterans. There's a real pattern developing when we look at Kline's record: he always puts a narrow, partisan Republican agenda first.
