A little bird sent me a copy of the proposed agenda. It’s a copy of a meeting agenda for a meeting last night. I’ve added emphasis to the bit that concerns me:

Consideration of Resolutions
- Abolish the Met Council
- Reject the National Party Rules change that requires delegates be bound by straw vote results on the first ballot for President
- Ask Republican Legislators to rescind their “no new taxes” pledge and enter into a compromise solution in an effort to resolve the national debt crisis
Adjourn and socialize
A couple, of questions, Carver Party People:
- Did the emphasized resolution pass?
- Could whomever it is who’s putting this resolution forth kindly tell me if, when you’re buying a car, you start with the price that you’re willing to pay and then move up, normally?
Parts of the MNGOP seem to be stuck on stupid. It’s dismaying that one of those parts is in bright-red Carver County.
