Pawlenty the "bag man" now? Palin and Bachmann the old shrews of the "tea baggers"? What's next? For sure it won't be any relief from the robber credit card barons and Health Insurance greed machines.If the banks truely want to get the cash engine running again.They absolutely have to lower the interest they charge poor people and up the interest they charge rich people.The same tactic on health insurance premiums.People just don't have the money to keep feeding these insatiable cash eaters.More sooner than later,the big bucks people will figure this out or watch their "way of business life" slide down the outhouse hole along with out politicians!You will trade your SUV for a loaf of bread soon if they don't change their actions and reactions to this crisis!Stop bickering and get something done!

Great, our Govenor has been reduced to package delivery boy for big money in hope for tip money to run for President where he can attempt to ingratiate himself further to big money.

Does anybody out there care about casinos in Minnesota for revenue. Thought that 100g came from lobbiest to block gambling. If they don't get gambling revenue in this state we won't be able to afford taxes. (is that what government wants maybe) Mytery does anybody know what a casino takes in a year. Not one candidate will mention Gambling. How about it Michele.

Strange, the Gov sure looks like a lapdog for big money. How sad that the political system in this country is primarily a system of bribes.

Forget paying taxes. All they can do is take away your house and all your belongings and then we can all be on the dole with a much happier life with the rich paying our way.

With this Pawlenty. He's actually PROUD of the fact that he is nothing more than a delivery boy for the big-money Republican donors. What a joke our soon-to-be ex-governor is.

All Pawlenty talks about is money, sex and drinking. Start talking about how we are going to solve the budget problem in MINNESOTA. Maybe we should cut his pay and staff since he has so much time to be running around the USA. Be part of the solution, or resign like Sarah.

And you think "redeemer man" IS REAL?
They started this about a year ago when the paid blogers pretended to be black. Only problem was they wrote the same as Twain did in the 1800's. They found out nobody fell for that, so now blacks can't use caps or spaces. Ya, that's it. Tribute to Hannity & Holms.
The unpaid bloggers do the dirty work.
