Moron Mail

I've seen enough Moron Mails the last couple of days to justify doing another Harry Potter spoof. And while the overwhelmingly positive reaction to that post from about 3 people ensures that there will be another episode in that franchise, time constraints force us to wait and work quickly here today.

So let's begin with moron numero uno:

On Nov. 12, DFL State Chairman Brian Melendez called for GOP Lt. Gov./Transportation Commissioner Carol Molnau's resignation for continuing mismanagement at MnDOT, stating, "Firing one person at MnDOT doesn't even come close to addressing that department's dysfunction, which begins with the utter failure of Lt. Gov. Molnau as commissioner. ... Molnau should step down so that our state and transportation infrastructure can recover from years of mismanagement and underfunding by the Pawlenty administration." Yet the Star Tribune did not report this news.

On Nov. 20, Minnesota GOP Chairman Ron Carey called on Secretary of State Mark Ritchie to resign for allegedly using public data publicly. And the Star Tribune is all over it like a cheap suit.

What gives?

[Horshack] Oh oho OHOHOH!!![/Horshack] I can answer that question:

One is a relevant and provocative statement from the head a political party relevant to an ongoing newsworthy scandal involving the Secretary of State.

The other is irrelevant posturing based on facts not in evidence (made by the president of the Minnesota State Bar Association, no less) asserting a politically self-serving subjective opinion that does nothing to advance any story regarding MnDOT.

However, it should not pass without noting that the Tim O'Bonermort did choose to publish this letter, from a DFLic Party hack without identifying her as such.

So, let's call it even, eh, Betty?

OK - one down. Looks like we have time for one more. We'll skip over the non-moron letter sent in by some guy named "Gary Gross" (while taking a moment to speculate how this "Gross" guy managed to slide one past Lord O'Bonermort) and hit this shiznit, also relating to our dishonest, dimwitted, hyperpartisan Communist Party endorsed Sec. State:

The "partisan" dispute between DFL Secretary of State Mark Ritchie and his Republican predecessor Mary Kiffmeyer boils down to this: Ritchie wants to register voters and Kiffmeyer wanted to disqualify them.

The parties might as well name themselves Democratic and Undemocratic.

I'm just going to edit this baby for accuracy, and alter the obvious stale talking point (that he mistakes for clever, original thought):

The "partisan" dispute between DFL Secretary of State Mark Ritchie and his Republican predecessor Mary Kiffmeyer boils down to this: Ritchie wants to register [dead, fictional, illegal] voters and Kiffmeyer wanted to disqualify them.

The parties might as well name themselves Democratic Despotic and Undemocratic. Bonerific!
