After having reviewed the video of the shoe throwing incident I have two observations. First, whatever I may think of the Presidential performance of George W. Bush no one deserves to have a stinky shoe thrown at them. Second, you have to admire the ability of W. to duck and weave around the incoming footwear. You have to wonder if he is used to people throwing things at him...

On to the daily romp:

Ollie Ox is now using the twitter...

They are celebrating Bill of Rights Day over at Grizzly Groundswell by rambling on about how ironic it is that Franklin Roosevelt established the day. Is it at all ironic that this group of conservatives accuses Roosevelt of violating the Bill of Rights while supporting George W. Bush?

Keynesian economics is WRONG! So wrong, in fact, that all you have to do is call it wrong without providing any additional information to support your thesis:
Now THAT is some hard hitting reporting...

Andy Aplikowski would like to be appointed to the Senate seat of either New York or Illinois. An Aplikowski FREE Minnesota? I am willing to chip in for that one...

There is some decent analysis of a potential Pawlenty run at a third term versus stepping down and beginning his run for the Presidency in 2012. Unfortunately, I think the article underestimates the ability of the DFL to hand gubernatorial elections over to the Republican Party. For more Pawlenty news, you can check out Ollie Ox comparing him to King George and his policies to that of the Stamp Act (Great Stuff!).

Jeff Rosenberg appears surprised at the willingness of Republicans to step into the abyss of insanity. Really, Jeff, are you really surprised?

Mitch Berg is pimping out some top ten article by the Young America Foundation. Forgive me if I don't put too much credence in an organization that welcomes Michele Bachmann into its midst and advocates action against liberal educators.

I do so enjoy the whole "liberals hate guns" meme! As usual, the hatemongers over at Anti-Strib rise to the occasion:

You can even give one to your liberal friends and have them spend some time with you on the range. Most liberals have never shot a gun and thus fear them. Maybe if they understood guns better they wouldn't hate them so much?

I would encourage this 'il duce to travel up north and visit my liberal relatives who live just on the edge of the northwoods. Perhaps they will think twice about this foolish notion once they have been bear baiting with some liberals!

Apparently Tim Walz has decided to be a selfish jerk and only govern the lower portion of the state of Minnesota!

Although there is some humor to be found in this story from none other than Michael Brodkorb. Humor, you say? From Michael Brodkorb, you say? YES! On learning the information that Walz would not run, Brodkorb pulled out the old pictures to go along with the post. To top off the humor, he chastises his commenters with this line:
Yeah, folks! personal attacks are meant for the body of the post and NOT the comments section. I believe the phrase, You reap what you sow applies to this particular situation and most definitely to this particular blogger. That Brodkorb, what a humorist!

    Did someone throw a shoe at Brodkorb?

    I missed that.
