I guess the elitist Pointy-headed Pricks on the S&S editorial board are so damned superior to the rest of us, they see no reason to read their own paper or listen to “The Tape” before spouting off about the pile of shit Dean Johnson has jumped into.
The excerpts from this puddle of piss say it all:
“The DFL senator from Willmar got caught on tape implying that he had assurances about the outcome of possible gay marriage litigation from state Supreme Court justices that the justices vow and he now says he does not have.”
“Even if Johnson was only voicing his own inference from his acquaintance with several justices and a casual conversation with one of them…”
Now, here, is part, is what Dean said to his fellow clergy:
"I have had a number of visits with them about our law. All of them, every one of them, including the lady who just stepped down, Kathleen Blatz, was my seatmate (in the Minnesota House) for four years. She was the chief justice. You know what her response was? 'Dean, we all stand for election too, every six years.' She said 'We're not going to touch it.' That's what she said to me."
Implying that he had assurances? Voicing his own inference?
Imply: To make something understood without expressing it directly.
Infer: Conclude something on the basis of reasoning.
Do you partisan hacks want to stand by those statements? It is quite obvious that you are ignoring the Donkey and the accompanying donkey shit that is sitting in the middle of the room.
HE IMPLIED NOTHING. HE INFERED NOTHING. HE STATED AFFIRMATIVELY THAT HE HAD MET WITH SEVERAL OF THEM “ABOUT OUR LAW”. THE SUBJECT DIDN’T COME UP IN PASSING, THE LAW WAS THE REASON FOR THE MEETING – READ HIS WORDS, LISTEN TO THE TAPE AND, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PULL YOUR LEFT WING HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSES AND TRY, FOR ONCE, TO ACCEPT REALITY AS IT IS.
Johnson shot off his mouth and, either way you cut it, he flat out lied.
Either he lied when he said he had “a number of visits” with justices “about our law”. Or he lied when he went into Cover-Your-Ass mode.
He can’t have it both ways and he should pay the price.
I think it’s time for a new majority leader.
