That works too. :) I think I’ll search for a pic of the guy. I bet he’s the twin to R.T. Rybak, mayor wonder boy of Minneapolis.
Used to live over in the Red River Valley and knew Twin City politics much better than I do now.
‘Course back then, before Coleman folded up camp and limped home without a fight, it wasn’t the constant nauseating assault on the sensibilities it is now: Frankin, Ellison, Klobuchar and, as you say, Ryback. Oh my god and Mark Dayton again now too.
I have a boyhood pal who is a doctor there and is the type to blind himself to all evidence and declaim about how “stupid” Michele Bachmann is while defending Obama & Ellison and them as “trying to do the right thing.”
When I lived nearby I did spend a lot of pleasant hours listening to Sooch and his good sense observations. My favorite was firing up every gasoline-powered cylinder he owned (from generator and lawn mower to the cars, snowmobile and Harley etc. etc.) at the appointed hour on Earth Day. All the flashers going, honking the horn, the works.
That and also the days when he would go through the gubmint pages of the phone book and call up the many bizarre Minnesota state agency listings and ask them what the hell they did on the taxpayer dime—ha!
Sorry to go on so long. Hang in, fight on!
