What's with, like, the lean content on this blog, lately?
Sorry, sports fans, but...
As you may know, I write for another blog (Dump Bachmann) and I've been busy this week.
It's a Bachmann story, of course. Two days ago I printed a rumor that had two parts:
1) DFL candidate Bob Hill might be dropping out of the race.
The Hill campaign was kind of upset that I printed that, but they so far they haven't explicitly denied it. So I have been on the phone and the internet with people the past couple of days, batting the issue back and forth.
2) The second part of the rumor was: Former Ventura transportation commissioner Elwyn Tinklenberg was getting into the race, to run as a DFL candidate against Bachmann.
After I printed that on Dump Bachmann, the Pioneer Press reported that a Tinklenberg spokesman said that that part of the rumor was correct. Today the St. Cloud Times printed that Tinklenberg was indeed reconsidering his options and thinking about a run against Bachmann. Tinklenberg has had meetings with the other DFL candidates (Bob Hill and Bob Olson.)
That's where we are, at this writing. In other news, Nancy Pelosi reacted to Petraeus' progress report on Iraq and mentioned Petraeus' "we have to fight ten more years in Iraq, if we really want to win" assessment. (See previous item on this blog.) That's good; let's get that out in front of all the voters so they can see what this Iraq war thing really involves.
But the bottom line is, I haven't had time this week to come up with all the "political hilarity" that I usually provide for this blog. No Larry Craig jokes.
I will try to get back to that quality content this weekend. In the meantime, let me see if I can come up with something to amuse you, to make it worth your time to read this. Let's see... Google... "Larry Craig jokes"...
Hmm... not funny... not funny... not funny... Aha! Here's a good one; from David Letterman:
“Senator Craig from Idaho is blaming the media for his guilty plea, especially that cute guy from the Associated Press."
