Wow. The DFL voters think that now, in the midst of a huge fiscal crisis, the best solution is to put an alcoholic with mental health problems in charge of the state? Really?

I'm sympathetic to both those who struggle with alcoholism, and to those who face mental health challenges. Lord knows we all have our flaws and our shortcomings. But putting Mark Dayton in the governor's office sounds like an even bigger risk than taking a young one-term senator with no private-sector experience and putting him in the White House. And we all know how well that's worked out.

  1. I don't look at Mark Dayton as an alcoholic with a mental health problem. But what I do remember was a Senator, the only Senator in Wash who closed his office, high tail it home when he thought there might possibly be a terrorist attack. What would he do if a real crisis happened in MN? High tail it to Venezula?
