Ladies and Gentlemen, I have no dog in this hunt. I worked with fellow military veterans for Sergeant Major (Ret.) Tim Walz in the First, and against Kline in the Second during the last cycle; this cycle I’m concentrating on those AND holding Erik “The Hustler” Paulsen accountable for his extremist rightwing record. Add to that, keeping the local republiCons here in “The Hustler’s” hometown honest, keeps me quite busy.
That said, what’s coming out of the Sixth District, cannot be ignored.
I’ve heard that those questioning El Tinklenberg’s lobbying, er, ‘scuse me, “consulting” activities simply have an axe to grind because THEY have a dog in the hunt. I’ve heard those questioning Tink saying it needs to be vetted now, because if we don’t do it now, Bachmann’s Bootlickers will do it later – and they’re simply doing due-diligence duty at the time due diligence is supposed to be done.
I happen to side with the latter. Quite frankly, what I’ve seen and heard, reeks. And if it’s true, it needs to be aired out, and aired out now; and if it’s not true, it needs to be STOPPED. NOW.
Folks reading this can take the motivation of those that sent the letter to the U.S Attorney’s office any way they want; what they cannot deny is they pushed this issue to a “Put Up Or Shut Up” point.
And in the vetting of candidates, a “Put Up Or Shut Up” point is always a good thing.
