Friday Ramblings with Robert
Do you know Matt Entenza? Me neither. He has however made it a point in his political campaign for governor in Minnesota to disparage Mississippi in TV ads. Here you can watch it for yourself and form your own opinion:
“If budget cuts were always the answer, then Mississippi would be a leader in this country.”
Well Mr. Minnesota Man I am pretty sure that is called fiscal responsibility when you decide to not spend what you do not have. That could possibly be a foreign concept to Mr. Entenza, who of course is a liberal Democrat, thinks you should spend no matter what to give people services. Entenza claims to have been run out of Mississippi in the past and his spokesman, Jeremy Drucker, says they will not apologize for the ad because, “This is about us.” Maybe you should keep it about you then and not mention Mississippi if that is truly the case. Here is their phone number if you would like to speak with them: 651-647-1425.
She Will Not Go Away
It has been months now, but our gay rights darling from rural Mississippi, Constance McMillen, just loves basking in the spotlight that has been brought her way. It is ironic that at the start of all this she claimed she did not want to make this a big deal, but she sure pounced on the opportunity to make a name for herself in all of this. She now has a benefit concert in her honor in New York, of all places, planned for later this month. At some point I suppose her 15 minutes of fame will be up and maybe she can go back to having a normal life like she wanted as all this unfolded. Instead of making her point and letting things settle down she has been at the GLAAD awards, been at the Gay Pride Parade in New York and now is set to head to Woodstock for this concert. All she is is a flash in the pan poster child for gay rights groups who will brush her aside as soon as they find their next poor soul who needs to be lifted up and paraded around. Hopefully, she gets what she wants from all of this exposure and can lead a happy life
Ross and Nunnelee Together
It was good to see Alan Nunnelee and Henry Ross come together yesterday in support of reaching a common goal that they have shared since the start of their campaigns. Ross giving his endorsement of Nunnelee is a positive sign for Republicans as they try to unseat Travis Childers who was able to get elected because of serious division on the Republican side last time around. Nunnelee of course needs to court Ross supporters and not assume anything if he expects to be able to go in to the general election with a strong following behind him. If Republicans are united behind Nunnelee in November then I believe the election actually has the potential to be an easy win believe it or not.
