  1. Just because he agreed to allow seat license fees during negotiations doesn’t mean he agreed to allow seat license fees in the final deal. Mitch documented the concessions made during the budget shut-down negotiations and still, the Governor denied it after the fact. Sounds like a patters. I guess by now Minnesotans ought to know how little relation history and reality bear to the Governor’s recollection or current popular opinion.

  2. But he isn’t upset with Boy Pohlad getting millions of taxpayer money for Target Field, and then spending millions on Democrat causes?

  3. Mitch, I don’t think the shift of power in the legislature is going to change the moronic thinking that brought about this stadium deal. I’ve come not to expect logical thinking from either Democrats or Republicans when it comes to the public financing of commercial sporting events facilities.

    It’s a business for heavens sake! If the seat licenses sell – they sell. If they don’t, they will be discontinued. Why should we really care? People seem to be willing to spend a lot of their own money to go and watch that activity (football, I believe). The gov and the mayor should let them do so.

    Pffft. Probably not, since all the morons not only got re-elected, but they brought Reinforcements. But the deer-in-the-headlights look on Governor Prozac’s face when he suddenly realized he’d been jobbed by smarter people was almost worth the price…in fact, now that I’ll have absolutely no part in paying that price, it’s a bargain!

  5. Good call, Chuck. I might also add “then reducing the quality of the product to AAA caliber.”
