As we return to another episode of Emo Senator, Southern Minnesota's most watched telenovela, loyal fans find Mike Parry, the Belle of Waseca County, reigning over the parade circuit, while Allen Quist attacks Congressman Walz for just about everything.
Mike Parry's Facebook page features new photos from Morristown's Dam Days and Luverne's Buffalo Days parades. Fans will be thrilled to see the new friend our diva acquired in the Rock County capitol. Since the CEO of the chicken's corporate sponsor gives to Republicans, the photo might be a desperate appeal for campaign contributions.
The Emo Senator could use the help, since few people are seeing these photos on Facebook. Today's Morning Take notes:
SOCIAL: In the CD1 GOP primary race, Allen Quist has 700 “likes” on Facebook and Sen. Mike Parry has 216.
If you have followed Emo Senator on the page of Bluestem Prairie, do the right thing and "Like" the Emo Senator's congressional campaign Facebook page.
Meanwhile at his Facebook page, Allen Quist scolds Congressman Walz for wanting to invest in infrastructure and science. Don't believe those maps that have Highway 14 heading to Wisconsin; fixing roads and bridges would cost money and those roads lead only to Greece.
Parry fan-zine Faribault Daily News also noted that Quist stopped by their office in Allen Quist and the FDN and they found him to be a bird of a different feather:
If Allen Quist's name were found in the thesaurus, the entry would read: "Deficit hawk."
After officially filing his papers for his 1st Congressional District candidacy in St. Paul Wednesday afternoon, Quist stopped by the FDN newsroom to talk on his platform and plans for the future -- which revolve primarily around yearly federal spending limits, aggressive reductions in private sector financial support (Read: Bailouts) and discretionary spending. . . .
