Reason #1: She lied about her business background. Her ads make her sound like some kind of entrepreneur. In fact, she’s a “Human Resources” executive. Now, God love all you HR people in the audience, but Human Resources is the exact opposite of entrepreneurship. Fully-implemented HR processes are a leash around business’ neck, ready for government to yank. And while I’m sure none of you HR people in my audience are like this, far too many are utterly worthless.
Reason #2: She’s a lying pig, and voting for her would validate all that is slimy and stupid about American politics. A vote against Craig – no matter who the opponent – is a vote against the basest, most rotten aspects of politics today.
Reason #3: Her opponent is the father of modern Minnesota conservatism. Jason Lewis has a 30 year record of putting his principles out there; walking back from ’em would be very, very hard – and, I suspect, anathema to him. Add to that the fact – which I’ve already mentioned, but bears repeating as often as possible between now and election day – that Angie Craig is a lying pig who represents everything that is vile and pustulent about American politics today – and the choice is clear.
UPDATE: Did I mention Angie Craig is a lying pig?
