Nice. So now I know that all of these goofs are spewing their ignorance at the fair also. Fantastic.

Ask them about corn subsidies, see if you get a different answer than the standard kiss-up line.

Was Dayton handing out pamphlets on how to properly care for dogs?

Tom Emmer is one of the nicest guys a person will ever meet. So excited to have him as our next governor.

Does Dayton explain how he is going to spend additional public money on education when his plan to erase the $6 billion dollar deficit is still about $600 million dollars short of revenue?

Horner is wearing a SPAM hat? Can't vote for him now.

Brian Trusinsky, a teacher from Woodbury, grabbed Dayton's hand and said, "Senator, a casino at the Mall of America is a no-brainer."

"No-brainer"? You can say that again.

Mn doesn't need the expansion of the gambling vice in the name of more revenue (taxes). I think gambling causes more societal problems than the "thrill and hope ($$$)" of the experience.

Say no to the expansion of gaming in MN.
Amazing

Why is it that in a state of well over 3 million we end up with these three schmucks running for governor. If this is the best the three parties have to offer, then we better push for a fourth party that would not allow any lawyer to become a candidate.

The baby looks like he's freaking out. I'd be freaked out too if that nutcase stuck his face down by me. What is his mom thinking?

That Baby next to Dayton has a higher IQ then both the Mother and Dayton!

That Baby knows thanks to Dayton and the DFL party She/He owes $43,000.00 before birth!

What? No picture of Tom Emmer trying to drum up votes in the Beer Garden?

Wasn't he lecturing the fairgoers about what he'll do to reduce the penalties for drunken driving?

I thought DWI's were one of his main priorities!

The only people that care about that are the people that won't vote for this clown anyway. The unions will get out the vote, old ladies will be scared to vote for anybody other than a DFLer (everyone else steals their social security and medicaid you know!), and the inner city will vote for more handouts from the DFL.

Minnesotans will be saddled with a spineless tax-raiser for 4 years. Emmer and Horner don't have a shot at winning.

That nutcase Dayton is probably walking around n a hazmat suit, in case there are any terrorist attacks, and remarking how cheap the food is and how there needs to be a lot more taxes on top of the prices.

Dayton may be a nice guy but for someone to spend millions of dollars he never earned ie:trust fund
for a job that pays under 200 grand a year makes me worry about how he will spend the states money that isn't his own.
In other words I don't trust the trust fund baby to do whats right for this state!

The baby is saying, "get me out of this photo and away from this guy, I'm not a DFL'er just because my mom brought me here!"

Where is Susan Gaertner to charge this mother with Child Endangerment.

Let's see; a successful businessman, family man that wants to put minnesota back to work or another limousine liberal whom wants to spend EVEN more of other people's money, was an atrocious, failed senator, trustfund baby...not to difficult of a choice?
