Brava! There was nothing left of that dead horse you comprehensively beat, Sally Jo. I'm not entirely sure the focus of this blog post: that somehow a word means something different to a back bencher than to a leader? Really? Your side is more sophisticated than that and for good reason. You also go along with it but let's keep that our secret, ok?

Rep. Daudt's primary job is to prevent the worst excesses of one party rule in Minnesota. I can't believe you wouldn't feel the same were the situation reversed. How he succeeds will depend on which part of the MN GOP spectrum one consults. My perspective is likely very different than the not-sufficiently-disgraced purity people.

In any event, I take a bit of hope from your post on Kurt Daudt. Had he been like prior leadership, he would not have been worth your or anyone else's notice.

"Rep. Daudt's primary job is to prevent the worst excesses of one party rule in Minnesota."

In other words, he's going to be a spoiled-brat toddler and keep throwing up all sorts of road blocks to keep Democrats from doing things like fixing, in a sensible manner, the huge budget holes created by Tim Pawlenty when he ran the Lege and later the governor's gig (and which were maintained by the Republicans in 2010)?

For those who need a little remedial history on how those budget holes came to be: http://www.citypages.com/2005-01-19/news/minnesota-eats-itself/
