Sounds like the MN Repubs are being proactive.

Good, because Sen. “Dung Heap” Harkin would try to clone Wellstone.

We haven’t controlled the house and senate here in over 40 some-odd years. The real shame is that Mark Dayton somehow was elected to be the blockade to some real change in MN.

Given that it’s Minnesota, that’s probably a good idea.

I was hoping they would succeed in bringing back Peter Graves so we wouldn’t need to use Tom Cruise for the next Impossible Mission.

I hate to pop your bubble, but the bill would ban *human* cloning.

Sounds like Franken-slime wouldn’t be covered.

They have enough “Ya, you betcha’s” already. They figure more cloning of these would be reverse affirmative action.

I mean, if there is a federal law against it, don’t they have a lot more important crap to take care of in my former state?
