Links updated

In case you don't use my blog as your own personal reading list (and I wouldn't blame you if you did), I've updated the categories to your left in a way that makes sense to me. Whenever possible, I've linked to an official campaign blog or blogs specifically focused on the race listed. If I've missed anyone, please please please let me know and I'll get a link up there ASAP. In the interest of fairness, I've listed right-leaning blogs when appropriate as well as my compatriots on the left and in the middle. Read away!

I believe you have Lloydetta in the wrong category.

This blog is run by Ana Young one of the best known Republicans in the Twin Cities. She is the former head of the "Log Cabin Republicans" and continues to carry their and the GOP's mantle.

If you go to her blog and read through the columns over the last year, you will see they mainly attack Democrats.

The DFL Stonewall group has issued warnings about her in the past. They say Dems should avoid conversing with her or she will use their writings against them and the Democratic party.

Sure, she claims to be a gay leader but that does not mean she is liberal or even moderate. She is as right wing as they come when it comes to GOP platform issues (other than abortion or gay rights).

She should be in the same category as MDE.

thanks, Mynnesota.... I think you give me way too much credit. I am not a "well known Republican". I am an online activist - so many political types are familiar with my posts to political elists. I get called a "RINO" all the time by more conservative republicans, and then you think I'm part of the vast right wing conspiracy. BTW, it's Eva Young, not Ana Young.

Stonewall Chair, Paul Skrbec and Al Juhnke both sent DFL house members a "warning" about me being a Republican - that's no news. Others in Stonewall have told me they disagreed with Paul Skrbec's actions.

I actually support light rail transit - which isn't a right wing position.

On the 6th district race, I'd add Students for Bachmann to balance out my other blog, Dump Michele Bachmann. You might want to add the Wind Beneath the Right Wing to the Republican blogs.

I stand by my assertion....if you want to have an accurate blog listing, you need to put Miss Young's Lloyd blog into the Republican catagory.

You see in her post above, she actually tries to twist the Stonewall warning into something it is not. She is trying to divide the DFL Stonewall group as only a good GOP'er would.

Whenever you see the name Lloydletta or Eva Young....THINK REPUBLICAN.

I have a compromise that may satisfy this issue - in the future, I'll keep an open mind, and if conditions warrant, I'll create a category for Moderates. I can only go by what I read and how other bloggers describe themselves, and Eva's biggest issues are GLBT issues, which transcend party lines - ergo, I might have to call it Moderates and Others.

I don't claim to be a gay leader. My only claim is that many self proclaimed gay leaders don't speak for me. I only claim to speak for myself.

And mynnesota, it seems like the black helicopters are circling. Stonewall - like any other group is comprised of individuals - and they don't all think alike. Similar internal debates go on within Log Cabin Republicans.

GLBT issues are one area I focus on. I also focus on the issue of creationism, stadium boondoggle and local races.

Also, just for the record, I strongly criticized MDE when he started going after low level DFL volunteers. I thought that was morally bankrupt.
