« When GOP catchphrases go wrong: Dahms, nursing homes and "one size fits all" | Main | Bluestem considers issue in getting out of way of burning train before fire department gets here »

I remember a couple recent occasions where the DFL Majority at the time realized it had trampled on the rights of minority by ending debate before some GOP members had a chance to speak. It happened in both chambers.Speaker Thissen and Majority Leader Bakk along with the DFL voted to reopen debate so all members could be heard.

There is a history of open debate in Minnesota politics. Even if debate takes until 4:00 in the morning, Minnesota politicians are normally cordial and admit when they violate a process.

The GOP proved they were more interested in power plays than governing during 2011-12. It appears they are still not ready for prime time.
