    "I'm concerned with the direction this library is going and I voted no to send a message," said a resident. "Please keep the library open, but change the way that we're making decisions on books."

    Oh, so you didn’t want the library to have no money, just very little money. I don’t think the irony is direct enough to be a Leopards Eating Peoples Faces Party post, but it’s adjacent.

That said if she wants to avoid scares in the future, it would behoove her to remember that her district needs her leadership. She does great things for the country in Congress, but her first priority should always be here. She is our rep.
    As the mayonnaise guy on BCS said- yep yep yep yep

    No more that many of the people who make up her voting block (the reason she is always likely to win) are the people who are committing the crimes. Frey gets crap for the carjackings in Minneapolis but a White Middle Class Jew is not going to make much headway in the Somali Muslim parts of town (where many of the carjackers are from/reside) even if they usually vote for him. Omar holds sway there, she should be more vocal about it and talking to the community leaders trying to get them to take some action. She has been noticeably absent both physically and vocally on the matter. That is why Samuels damned near unseated her running on a platform of "I parallel her in every way except I am tough on crime!!1!1!".

    Of course, he also saw that when push came to shove, the people of Minneapolis hate the cops but dont want them replaced until there is something there to replace them with. MNPD is filled with racist, criminal d-bags who are so whiny they would rather quit than deal with even the smallest amount of oversight but that is still better than letting the State Troopers control the city. Troopers in Minneapolis for extended periods would cause way more problems than it would solve.

    Well, crap, that would change things. (If I were a conservative I could just deny that or attack you.)

    The lateness of the procedure is further proof of the crime of the Bible Thumpers, not a mitigation.

    Look, the anti-abortion zealots get no benefit of the doubt. But this is a case that would likely have been prosecuted before Dobbs.

    Umm, isn't that flooding Kentucky's problem, and not something the federal government and taxpayers from other states should be stepping in to bail them out?

    That's... not really doing much for your constituents. That's just bleating on cable news.

    Take my rep, Betty McCollum. She gets out and talks to her constituents, holds hands, kisses babies, the usual stuff that politicians need to hold their nose and do to stay in office. Betty hasn't won a general by less than 20 pts or a primary by less than 70. Because she tends to her home plot.

    Omar didn't tend the home plot. That was Rayburn's advice to all the freshmen who came in from TX -- "don't forget about the home plot, or you'll be buried in it."
