Political writers should be neutral - it is pretty obvious that RSB is not just looking at how she 'slants' her articles.

This is what happens when people forget our government and religion should be separate. It's why our churches are allowed so much freedom, so they don't have to be politically involved.

It is incredibly regrettable that legislators who are in touch with their conscience are punished by the right wing og their party. But it's also emblematic of the GOP meltdown in MN and across the country.

probably a silly question for a party that has operated with a significant debt for the past few years, how about coming up with a viable funding source for the $650million in long term debt for ziggy's stadium that this party pushed out of both houses with sham funding (e pulltabs)?

Read up on Todd and Sheldon who were censured for not voting Liberal enough.

And, if I were you, I'd look at which party voted for that Ziggy stadium.

Anyone who supported the NFL subsidy should be stepping down on their own at this point, the deviancy they have supported and participated in cannot be tolerated here.

Its simply grand that the Republicans work zealously to keep the party pure. A slate of ideologically dogmatic conservatives gives us a clear choice between disfunction and leadership. This statement is left purposely ambiguous.

Today’s story missing from the Tribune (perhaps censored by the party oversight committee): Tomorrow a new session of the legislature starts and both sides of the aisle are talking about another NFL subsidy in the form of tax forgiveness offset by higher taxes for MN residents. They act as if these are party favors freely and appropriately given in exchange for some greater good. How can such corrupt and non-compliant people be allowed to sit in seats of representation? Instead they and their apologists are giggling about it on Tom Hauser’s party promotional half hour. How much more corrupt do things need to get before action is taken to correct these errors of society?

Two more seats for the DFL majority in the House. Republicans should be focused on the huge and seemingly out of control spending increases by the DFL, the lack of leadership from the Governor, and a tax system that is despised by Minnesotans of all income levels. Instead they want to pursue a meaningless issue that the citizens have soundly rejected and aren’t interested in.
