Alison Krueger (R) took a parting shot at her crazy conservative write in opponent, Mark Olson in a post election article by the Sherburne Citizen.

"It is rare to see a Republican receive 22,000+votes in this district," Krueger said. "We are very grateful for that. However to those who gave their precious votes to the write-in campaign, we needed you. United we stand. Divided we fall. We Fell."

Krueger is placing the entirety of the blame for her loss on Olson rather than her inability to bring the party together in a meaningful way. Whatever you say about Olson, and the vast majority isn't good, he has the support of the party elites in Senate District 16. For Krueger to continue to drive the wedge between herself and these leaders displays a lack of interpersonal skills. As a practical matter I would say there is some serious healing that needs to take place in the district if they are to take it back but as a Fobbe supporter, I say FIGHT ON! In fact, I would encourage Mr. Olson to continue running for the senate seat and the house seat because god's representative never gives up.

    Eric, You don't have a clue about Alison's interpersonal skills. I've dealt with her. They're just fine.

    Fobbe will be a one term wonder because it's likely that Mary Kiffmeyer will run for Fobbe's seat in 2010. Seeya Sayonara, Ms. Fobbe.

    As for this nonsense that healing needs to happen, the opposite is true. Olson's cronies must be marginalized. They view Olson like a cult figure. They'll never vote for anyone not named Mark Olson.

    BTW, Olson isn't man enough to run against Kiffmeyer because he knows he'll get his ass handed to him.

    BTW2, rumor has it that he's under investigation by the IRS. That's unconfirmed but it's from someone who's known him upwards of 5 years through the BPOU.

    Kiffmeyer is just as nutty as Olson.

    Kiffmeyer promoted Olson and Zimmermann's PRT boondoggle in her recent campaign.

    Will Kiffmeyer continue her husband's "ill-fated crusade to ban the sale of dildos and other sex toys"?
