  • Just read on DKE that Ilhan Omar is telling voters to vote for two mayoral candidates not named current Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey come Novmeber, going so far as to tell them to leave him off their ballots altogether. I read they’re on opposite sides of the “Defund the Minneapolis Police” amendment, but I can’t say I know much else about their clearly frosty relationship.

    • Not likely to work...Frey has plenty of support.

      • The GQP in Michigan is quietly replacing canvassers who dared to certify the 2020 election.

        I'm not surprised.

        • **** counties want to join **** state: https://wtop.com/maryland/2021/10/we...ith-open-arms/

          Maybe that will get them 1% or so of the Blue Ridge Mountains, to go with the 10% of the Shenandoah River they already have, despite mentioning both of them in a state song despite the vast vast majority being in other states, because I guess meth and cousin ****ing don't make for great song lyrics.

          • So their plan is to make a nothing state that is already deeply Red a small amount bigger and make Maryland much Bluer? I love it! I embrace that like when the Red Counties in Minnesota want to secede to NoDak. Go ahead and double their population and guarantee that the next 50 years of Minnesota Statewide politics will be Bluer than Blue.

                It's just like the semi-annual Talk Between Yoopers at the Local Diner about the UP becoming its own state and maybe even taking parts of northern WI with it. Even if you could get the votes to break off and form the State of Superior as #51, it'll just be Snowier West Virginia.

                Note: I wouldn't necessarily object to allowing this, IF one of the following happens simultaneously:

                1. Both Puerto Rico and DC are also admitted as new states
                2. PR or DC is admitted as a state, and either the Dakotas or WY & MT are merged into one state.
                3. Both of the Dakotas and WY & MT are merged into two states.

                  Oh no, please don't make MI more reliably blue without adding much to WI! And while you're at it, please don't move the panhandle from FL to AL!

                  (Remember, if both of those had happened, Hillary would have won in 2016.)

                    Just imagine what the tax rate would need to be for individuals of "Superior" to maintain the roads, fire, and police protection they currently have.

                    The UP is 30% of Michigan's total area.... and 3% of the population.



                    The entire UP would become the world's largest combination clear cut forest and strip mine in an effort to try to break even.

                        • Education is the new dividing line, isn’t it? The party of intellectuals, perceived or real, versus the party of dunces?
                          Not saying men aren’t a problem, as we certainly are, and it’ll only widen as women continue graduating college at something like a 2-to-1 rate as men. College-educated men are slightly less Neanderthal than their uneducated counterparts, and same for women.
                          If McAuliffe holds on, I hope Virginia Democrats don’t lose their majority in the House of Delegates, a la Biden beating Trump, but Republicans making down-ballot gains.
