Monday Monday Monday

Personally, it's my least favorite day of the week. I'd much rather have another Sunday....but alas, time marches on. If you haven't had a chance, either scroll down or click directly to my recent interview with Mark Ritchie, DFL candidate for Secretary of State. On tap: tonight: Tim Walz, Thursday: Christian Sande. Friday: H.H. The Dalai Lama.

You may have heard that Illinois's junior senator was in town stumping for Amy Klobuchar and rallying the DFL faithful at the Humphrey Day Dinner. The humor of Mark Kennedy's GOP spitting at the event should be obvious - the pot seems to be unable to prevent itself from calling the kettle black. Tom DeWho? George W. Whaa? No sir, I'm quite sure I didn't have a fundraiser starring Dick Chainie. Who's that? You could cut the hypocrisy with a knife. Major difference, of course, being that GWB, Cheney, Tom DeLay, Bill Frist, and all the other GOP all-stars who have kept Mark Kennedy's campaign operation afloat are key players in a corrupt, unethical junta which hoodwinked the nation and has driven us down the road to ruin, while Obama has devoted his political career to standing up for the middle class, equality, and social justice.

Slight difference.

In other news, this exchange between Tony from Always Right, Usually Correct and Michele Bachmann (nee gay-hate bill author) is worth a read. I've said it before and will repeat it, principled conservatives like the guys at ARUC have been forgotten in today's Republican Party. These guys are smart, and while I may not agree with what they say, can respect their positions and supporting logic. I can't say the same for Bachmann's halberdiers and their ilk.

In any case, blogs like ARUC are worth reading, if for no other reason than to remind us that the Republican Party is not a monolithic hive mind any more than the DFL is a disorganized rabble. Each is organized at different levels, and how well they reach out to independents and moderates at the grassroots level will play a large role in our political fortunes in November.

Sorry, the GOP just got a little more monolithic.
