Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006

And a Minnesotan Shall Lead Them

On Friday we noted in They Don't Get It that the "Democrats like their blogging just like their economics: with a heavy dose of central planning." You may recall that Senator Reid, incoming Minority Leader, has decided to form a communications war room to coordinate with the lefty blogger community.

Today we learn, courtesy of the Strib, that Minnesota native Jim Manley will spearhead the new initiative. Manley, in an interview last week, said "The fundamental, core principles that Democrats stand for are still valid, but we need to do a much better job of communicating our message."

The prospect that the American people heard the Democrats message loud and clear -- and rejected it -- is too terrible to contemplate for Manley. But we do learn that Chris Lisi, chief spokesperson for Senator Dayton, strongly approves of Manley's elevation to the newly created position. "Jim a dynamite guy, he's a regular guy and he's exactly what the Democrats need to be in touch with regular Americans."

So he's got that going for him, which is nice.
