Entenza's campaign office must have been burglarized by a disgruntled Mississippian.

Apparently Entenza's dream state budget model is California, where high tax rates and even larger spending aprees - particularly to state unions - has resulted in our contry's largest state budget deficit. This is what he'll bring to Minnesota if elected governor? Yipee.

Whistle past that graveyard! Y'all don't even know what you don't know.

But of course, this is yet one more example of urbanite Blue-state open-mindedness and tolerance for those different from themselves, right?

MIssissippi's biggest problem is the exact opposite of what Mr. Entenza alleges. MS is a welfare State due to the long term control of Democrats. Haley Barbour is moving our welfare State in a direction that actually ends the sharecropper mentality of a large number of Mississippians.

I also am formally calling Mr. Entenza a liar concerning being run out of MS. Provide proof of it Entenza.

Every thing that comes out of Matt Entenza is manipulative drivel. The ONLY thing I want him to explain is why his wife, Lois Quam, stole 500 MILLION DOLLARS from the Health Partners rate payer's?

Minnesota would do well to copy Mississippi. I've lived in both states and found that Minnesota's shortcomings are far greater than poor old Mississippi's.

Quote: Dan Turner, spokesman for Mississippi's Republican governor, Haley Barbour, told the Associated Press on Friday: "Before someone makes a disparaging remark about Mississippi, they probably ought to come spend some time here."

I have been to Mississippi a number of times on business and like when in Louisiana, Tennessee, and New Mexico could not wait to leave and get back to Minnesota. Entenza's comments are right on and it will take years to repair the damage Pawlenty and his pals have done to Minnesota.

Mr. Entenza's wife was employed by United Health Group, not Health Partners. United Health Groups divisions are United Health Care, AmeriChoice, Ovations, Optum health, Ingenix, and Prescription Solutions. She is currently Managing Director, Alternative Investments, for Piper Jaffrey. Ms. Quam had noting to do with Health Partners.

Yes, the media certainly should follow up on this claim by Entenza. Was his drunk father to blame?

Yeah, and another thing we don't want is our governor to be gasbag Entenza.
What a waste of time.

Hopefully, by election time, everyone will be sick of Entenza because he started his TV adds so early. Not to mention the fact that he is a lying, sappy jerk.

Was Entenza's office burglarized by one of his DFL rivals? Oh, that's right, it's Matt Entenza who is known to investigate his DFL rivals, and then lie about it. Maybe Entenza burglarized his own office.

My apologies on behalf of the boob democratic party of which Entenza is a prime example. Unfortunately, we have lots of pompous, arrogant liberals up here who are bankrupt of ideas and resort to old stereotypes, which of course they claim is what they are against. We all know that only applies to their views.

That is actually not a bad theroy...it would make for some good publicity for him and seeing how he is trailing badly in the latest polls I wouldn't be at all surprised. I am not that familiar with Entenza but just buy him asking Robyn Robinson to be his running mate ( what kind of new crazy is that?) told me he is desparate, wants the black vote and wants ANY publicity he can get....

We are tracking liberal yard signs . we have people that report the addresses where the yard signs are located. All information on the owners of these properties is recorded and they are investigated. These liberals cannot stay anonymous anymore. We check their property taxes and dig up any negative information. All information will be posted on the Internet. These people will be exposed for what they are.
