Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright. Their age is showing - or at least their life experience. And that should be OK. I know the exact spot in their "over 60" brains, where those comments were born. My brain has a spot exactly like it. And I make no apologies for it.

C'mon Democrats. Elections are about voting. You know that don't you?
Yesterday, in a special election for House District 50B, the Republican won. It was a seat that Ann Lenczewski has held for a long time. It is a district that Obama won by 15%. There was a good Democratic candidate. But the Democrat lost by 130 votes.
What is more disturbing is that Andrew Carlson, the Democrat, got just 2452 votes. Are Democrats lazy? The weather was cold, but not a hindrance. The roads were fine. How hard can it be to just . . .
There was another MN District 2 GOP debate last night. This was in Goodhue county....kind of GOP rebel territory....Gerson territory.
But we also added a new candidate to the mix. He just filed and the event planners allowed him to participate. His name is Gene Rechtzigel...kind of a gadfly type who ran for Mayor of Apple Valley in 2014. He has "interesting" views.
But as for the debate itself, John Howe and Jason Lewis were the main source of conflict. Howe is pursuing his "carpetbagger" theme on Lewis - who does live just outside . . .
