Coleman hitting hard about Wellstone voting against national defense--very timely and on target.

"Let me finish!" "Don't interrupt me!"

Wellstone just likes to hear himself talk and won't shut up.

What? Is he sleeping with John McCain? He's only mentioned mccain about 50 times in the last 5 minutes.

Clearly, McCain needs to go to Minn and endorse Coleman after this. I trust Coleman will contact McCain and quash this absurd association that Wellstone is making that he alligns himself with McCain on defense. Desparation on Wellstone's part showing through, imho.

I'm very impressed with Coleman. He is incredibly poised, knows his stuff, speaks well. He is definitely a great GOP candidate. If he doesn't win this race--he'll be back--maybe for Governor.

Only thing, what's with Coleman not wearing a tie--I assume it's a planned strategy--maybe wanting to appear more relaxed and casual and appeal to a younger crowd.

I think Coleman is doing well also, Wellstone is not answering any questions, he is trying to control the conversation and just yada yada yada-ing. Coleman is resonding well, imho.

I like this guy. He was a democrat and saw the light. What is it they say about being a conservative, "A liberal who has been mugged?"

What I really liked about the debate was it's civility and that the news babe and her pal stayed out of it as much as possible.

Thanks again for the HU.

The news babe and her pal are married, actually. They've hosted TPT's Almanac for quite a few years.

Coleman hit Wellstone where Mr. Faux Populist needed to be hit: PAC money, broken promises, ineffectiveness, et al.

I like this guy. He was a democrat and saw the light.

Ol' Normie was a Democrat on the St. Paul Council when I lived there. He always stood for common sense growth and intelligent tax management. He started to stand up straight after Paula Macabee was elected in '88. Then ran for mayor as a Republican to shut-up and -out the dimwits that were getting elected to the council on the promise of lengthening the "hog trough".

Norm, you da man!. I just got back from an emergency job in Eden Prairie MN, did not see one single Wellstone placard or sign the whole way up on I-35 and I-494. Coleman signs had the look of dandelions in May. Just all over the place.

Yeah but did you check the cemetaries? That's where Wellstoned will be getting overwhelming support.

I sure hope Wellstone came off to Minnesota and the nation as the complete jackass that I saw tonight. What a jerk. Norm rightly treated him like the child that he is.

Yeah, if you judge by yard signs, Coleman's got this one in the bag. Even in the Twin Cities, I notice a comforting number of blue Coleman signs. And once you get into the suburbs and outstate, it's definitely Coleman country. (Although my friends up in Duluth say Wellstone is still running very popular up there.) Anyway, I'm feeling good. And tonight's debate on ALMANAC has me feeling even better!

Not only that but the Democratic Socialists of America have plans to ship in people to register the ..... dead!

Here's the text from the pop-up that happens when one logs onto their site (I'll save you the trouble and spare them the "hit"! ;-):

=========================================

Send A Student To Minnesota!

DSA’s national electoral project this year is the Minnesota Senate Election. Together with YDS, DSA’s Youth Section, we are mobilizing to bring young people to Minnesota. Minnesota is one of the few states that allow same day voter registration. We will therefore focus our energy on registering young people. Wellstone will need a high percentage of young people to register and vote for him if he is to stave off the campaign that Bush, the Republicans and the Greens are waging against him. He is the Right’s Number One electoral target.

Because we are focusing on issue-based voter registration, this electoral work can be supported by tax-deductible contributions. The DSA FUND is soliciting tax-deductible contributions to support this project. Contributions are needed to underwrite the costs of transportation as well as providing a stipend for expenses; housing is being donated. You can contribute online with a Master Card or VISA. To contribute, simply choose from one of the amounts listed below. Click on the red dot and you will be taken to a secure server to input your credit card information. Our online order system does not allow us to let you fill in an amount, so if the choices we offer are less than what you want to contribute simply make more than one transaction until you reach the total you want to contribute.

$125
$200
$50
$75
$500

To contribute offline:
Make your check payable to DSA FUND, indicate Minnesota Project on the check or in your letter and return it to DSA FUND, 180 Varick St., 12th fl., NY, NY 10014

Hey, a little town like Olivia does not count.

But seriously, I have only seen 3 Wellstone signs in the entire area.

Today, I flew my airplane over Oliva, since my wife requested that I document how well they have been improving the road running down the center of our town.

Three copies of the 74 pictures I took this morning were printed and provided on CD with full resolution.

One copy to city hall.

One copy to the local newspaper.

One copy to our little motel.

Now I just sit back and watch what happens....

According to the local newspaper, everything will be paved, and highway 212 will be open by next month. Even the idiots, once they looked at my pictures this morning, realize that they were being lied to.

Giggle, I pray that nobody votes for me this election!

I am having so much fun tweeking them, that I wish I could do this for the next 4 years!

Wellstone did not come off well tonight, in my opinion. I thought the highlight was when Norm indignantly cut Wellstone off at the knees after Wellstone tried to pull off a teacher-student dialogue with him. Norm told him "You're not a professor anymore, and I don't need you lecturing me on anything." Norm appeared to be very well prepared for the debate.

"Then some Liberal Puke stole it!!!"

Your Mom should put up another sign in its place. Some chants heard at recent DC FReeps:

MEANSPIRITEDARROGANTCONDESCENDINGLIBERALS !!

or

DEMOCRATS LIE,
DEMOCRATS CHEAT,
DEMOCRATS STEAL !!

Wellstone gets nailed about changing the rules right at the top of the show and loses control for the rest of the program....comes off as a complete dasshole

Yeah but did you check the cemetaries?

I used to live in St. Paul, MN. You gotta show a picture ID with a signature to vote. And the election judges or clerks are split 50-50, just like in Missouri, were I volunteered as an election judges when I lived there.

I live in the socialist republic of Minnesota and I can tell you that hasn't been the case for many years. A-N-Y-B-O-D-Y can walk up to an election judge, tell them they are so-and-so, the judge checks the computer list of registered voters and hands you a ballot card. NO ID, NO CROSS CHECK OF CRENDENTIALS OF ANY KIND. Any rat that keeps track of the old folks that die in the neighborhood they live in will compile a list of likely registered voters that won't be showing up to vote that fall. That's the way it is in metropolitan Minnesota today.

I'm a big believer on shining the light on the cockroaches' activist activities :-). I'm glad you were able to utilize the information. I do not live in MN, but I have many friends who do, including some big contributors to the Coleman campaign. I'm happy that this information I happen to find could help the cause of ousting Wellstone!

All the more reason why FReepers need to get their hands on Pollwatching credentials and actually get out there on Election Day and monitor the precincts. With credentials issued from the "Fitzgerald for Senate" campaign in 1998, I managed to get electioneering shut down in no less than 3 precincts in my area (north end of "Crook County", Illinois). All one has to do is to contact Coleman's campaign HQ or any satellite offices or any other active campaign to ask for the credentials.

The Dems will findout how the mood of the country is for real once these elections are over. I believe the average
citizen is catching on and the only votes the dems will hold will be the Communists, Muslims, and sepcial interest groups like the Gays, Now, Act up, and the so called teachers unions. And lets not forget the illegal aliens.

The battle here is to be fought in districts where minority voters made up of many illegal immigrants must be scurtinized and kept from illegally voting in the big cities.

New York, California, Texas and Florida will be the hotbeds for abuse. The so called popular vote that Gore supposedly one was made up of a few million of these votes, and with the INS not doing their jobs, we must scrutinize our own districts.

Keep your eyes and ears open and report any abuse before, and during the election to your local officials and here at to your fellow freepers so we may all be aware and intialize email and posting campaigns on the Net.


God Bless America
