There's an old saying: The bigger the front side, the bigger the back side. For years, I've watched Rep. Buesgens join the most extreme conservatives in his caucus on the floor of the MN House railing against "liberals", progressive issues, the environment, the poor. Buesgens, along with Reps. Kohls, Westrom, Siefert, Brod--and of course--Rep. Emmer can always be counted on to rant against almost any legislation proposed by Democrats. Buesgens likes to maneuver himself to be recognized and be the last speaker on an issue before the vote. It's kind of like Father Knows Best. Like Marty Siefert, he's fond of characterizing those who agree with him as "the adults", and refers to his opponents in the most patronizing of tones as "the children". So--Daddy Buesgens--isn't this news story illuminating indeed, and reflective of the "back side" of your dark character. I don't believe that you will be more empathetic toward others or chastened by this experience---look at your buddy Rep. Emmer (two DWIs). Instead-- you will rationalize the whole experience and be back to the legislature in January arguing for cutting the budget for drug treatment programs, and criminalizing "them" for their transgressions.

Right winger driving drunk in the ditch. Good metaphor for where they have taken the country.
