We missed the coronation.

Funny how the media lined up to take shots at the GOPers who came out early to endorse Mark Kennedy for the senate seat being vacated by the vacuous Mark Dayton, yet I’ve heard no such screams over the many endorsements Amy Klobuchar has gathered.

The article in the Star & Sickle is about Patty Wetterling, but there are a couple of other interesting tidbits:

Klobuchar has been racking up endorsements by large labor groups and was endorsed this week by U.S. Rep. James Oberstar, whose northern Eighth District is a pivotal one for DFLers.

In addition, EMILY's List, the women's fundraising group that typically supports all Democratic, abortion-rights female candidates, reached into the Minnesota race early to back Klobuchar over Wetterling.

Where are the screams of “coronation”, “anointing”, “the people have been shut out of the process”?

Where is the gnashing of teeth that happened when Kennedy was endorsed?

Why do I even ask the question?

Do I really think I’ll get an answer, one that makes sense?

Hell no
