Without question Dean Barkley has my vote. How conservatives can support one of the worst hypocritical politicians in Norm Coleman is beyond me. And Al Franken who continues the litany of lousy Democrats selected by their party to run for higher office(with the exception of one or two).
This year vote for Barkley. He truly represents the average Minnesotan!!

This guy is a jerk! If his only argument is "sick of the Dems and the Pubs", he's got nothing to offer. Sorry Dean, go home where Jesse roams! Your 15 seconds almost destroyed our state!

Truth Teller, you certainly are determined to trash Dean if you wish, but why not tell us who you are really shilling for?

Senator Barkley has just the touch of experience to be able to deal with the give and take of Congress in a way that will allow the repetition of our experience here with our own Legislature in bringing out he best of each of the two major parties ideas and actions.

We have had enough of my way or the highway over the bulk of the past eight years and even the past two, that did not see the Democrats force the failure of the Republicans to act in a responsible manner during their dwell of being in total charge of the store.

We need a Senator that has TWO votes available to cast in a way that can make a difference.

Dean will have that opportunity, as his vote will give to one side and take from the other, EVERY time he casts his vote as your Senator.

And that is really a GOOD THING.

Barkley is just another career politician (without much success). We need 'real' independents to run for office instead of party puppets.

Most Minnesota party hacks prefer insanity over sanity and lies over facts. That is why Barkley will not win.

To those who criticize those who are critical of Normy boy I have a couple of questions for you. What flavor kool aid is he serving you and have you ever read the story called The Pied Piper of Hamelin by Robert Browning. I only say that because I think Normy must be a good flutist as you follow him down to the river. Hope you can swim. It's some much fun making fun of narrow-minded conservatives because you just don't get it, because you are so mired in your own narrow-minded ideology.
I would love it if Barkley would end up beating the two big money candidates.

Why is it people who claim to be telling or know the truth always seem to be the ones who lie?

Yes, and doesn't that make him more of a spoiler than a candidate?
