Bring on the gay space communism! ;)
Interesting how I keep hearing this in weird places. Watching cable news and a NY Times Reporter was asked about how the White House feels about 2020. Reporter says the White House is always concerned about 2020, they feel they need to win the same states they did last time........they also feel they can play offense in MINNESOTA!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, apparently based on what I hear around here the Republicans are the stupidest party on earth. Cause they seem to think Minnesota is in play yet we all know it can't be in play. Just mention the possibility around here and you'll feel the heat.
I'd still like to know AND it's all I've ever asked on this topic and I never get a solid answer. Why? Why do they think this state of all the other states in the country they could possibly flip is the one? Rural? Surrounded by Red? What is it? That's all I ever wanted to know.
Iíll bet you $50 straight up Trump loses to:
No bet on:
Iím not even sure the worst of those candidates would lose MN but if that happened itís obvious that they lost every actual swing state and some other outliers, at which point itís not like MN lost them the election.
I donít really get scoobyís ongoing fixation of MN turning red.
Yep. No answer. Typical.
That seemed like a pretty straightforward answer to the question that was asked. The theory floated by the R's is that the rural areas in Minnesota (and xenophobia of Ilhan Omar!) would flip the state.
I have a different theory though. The R's don't actually think MN is in play. They are talking like it is to change the narrative. Right now the narrative is that a bunch of red states are possible flips in the next election. They hope to get networks to report that a safe blue state like Minnesota is at risk of flipping. They also hope maybe they can talk a good enough game that the Democrats devote more resources to Minnesota than needed and are unable to use those resources elsewhere. Don't buy it for a second and any high level Democrat that falls for such foolishness should never work in politics again.

Maybe itís possible we just donít like coastal opportunists who donít take the time to hide it. Maybe we donít like disingenuous smug arseholes who think theyíre better than us because we live 1,000 miles from the coast and have the audacity to... embrace it
Even economically, the depressions/recessions/booms, we don't move to the extremes. We just do what we do, keep consistent (for the most part) and don't over react one way or the other. We "simpletons" figure we'll stay the course, it'll balance out eventually. Don't spend more than you can afford, and don't be in anyone's pocket if you don't have to.
