On my Minnesota shock…

 jsenum replied to your post: Rick Santorum wins Minnesota and Missouri

Clearly you have not been paying attention. Bachmann and her foundry brethren have gotten huge. You should the new article in the Rolling Stone about the Anoka/Hennepin schools promoting bullying of LGBTQ kids.

I have been paying attention, but it just stuns me that Santorum gained that much ground in a couple of weeks… just two weeks ago, he was behind Romney, and three weeks ago was behind Gingrich and Romney. Minnesota had their jump to the left multiple times, but I think we’re seeing more of the step to the right thing.


Actually, no. Not if it means heading back to the 1950s alternate universe that never existed and yet is fondly remembered in every GOP primary and caucus…

And I read that article, but here it is for those who didn’t: "School of Hate: One Town’s War on Gay Teens". It’s both hideous and hopeful.

There is a totally true left wing in this country, we wear black bandanas at political functions. Usually it is the cops undercover agents that break shit at said events.

True - I should be clear. I meant at the federal level/serving in government. We have champions like Dennis Kucinich and Bernie Sanders, but they’re vastly outnumbered.
