Hey, my car insurance is up for renewal. Can I get some smokers to pay for that? Or maybe heroin addicts? Or people who watch that stupid Donald Trump show every time it's on?

Strangely enough, Mr. Lileks column has less "tongue-in-cheek" value than I thought it would. Let's face it though I voted for the man, Governor Dayton is a hot mess ... and not in a good way. The state legislature seems brilliant, compared to our beloved governor, but only slightly. Perhaps the true morons are us, the voting public. We continue to elect unspectacular talent to political positions, then complain when they deliver undesirable results.
