We also want to post this awesome Ken Avidor cartoon of Quist riding off into the sunset. The trusted steed? Drawn from Quist's homeschool curriculum, as Tim Murphy reported in Mother Jones:
One section asks this leading question: "Did dinosaurs and people live at the same time, and why do so many recently discovered ancient art works accurately picture dinosaurs?" The answer is a resounding "yes." "The only reasonable explanation for the stegosaurus carved in stone on the wall of the Cambodian temple is that the artist had either seen a stegosaur or had seen other art works of a stegosaur," Quist writes. "Either way, people and stegosaurs were living at the same time."
Elsewhere, Quist provides scientific evidence for the existence of dragons, and suggests that the Book of Job be taught as a science lesson: "Today we know beyond a reasonable doubt—Job 41 is a picture-perfect description of SuperCroc."
It might seem early, but the Star Tribune reported in Six House incumbents look to return to Congress:
Walz was facing former Republican state Rep. Allen Quist, who ran an almost entirely self-funded campaign in this southern Minnesota district.
Walz emphasized his efforts to support veterans and block insider trading on Capitol Hill. Quist has criticized Walz's support of the Affordable Care Act, the federal health care reform law, and Congress' inability to trim the federal deficit.
