Yep, that's just what our country needs, a hard-line partisan who believes listening to the other side of an issue is soft and wrongheaded.

The problems Minnesota and the Nation have with Michele Bachmann is because of Allen Quist. All Bachmann knows, she learned from Quist.

Go figure!

Geez, what is this, Groundhog Day for the Clown Car?

We've seen this movie before, folks. And it's going to end the same way.

Since Quist is a retread candidate, I feel excused in offering up some retread (but nonetheless true) remarks about the man.

From http://firedoglake.com/2009/12/05/come-saturday-morning-the-clown-car-rides-again-in-mn-01/ --

The staunchly anti-choice Quist is famous locally for being the man whose first wife Diane was killed while pregnant with their tenth child in a car accident in December 1986; he showed his undying love for her by a) pulling the six-and-a-half-month-old fetus’ body out of her womb and putting it in her arms so they could be displayed that way in the casket, and b) marrying his second wife Julie about six months later.
