Dayton v. Kennedy

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



The First Ring proves, once again, that it is simply first rate. You will not find more cogent analysis and commentary -- on such a wide range of issues -- like you will with 'Dead Ringer'. The next time you are tempted to purchase a subscription to Politics in Minnesota, save your money and bookmark this guy.

Yesterday Ringer put together a solid post on the goings-on in Republican circles to succeed Mark Kennedy in Congressional District #6. The players: Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer; former Education Commissioner Cheri Pierson Yecke and current State Senator Michele Bachmann. The GOP suffers from an embarrassment of riches in CD-6 and it is a shame only one of these women can run. Pierson Yecke is the sentimental favorite of DvK for the way the DFL-controlled Senate maligned this superb talent. But my head and heart is with Bachmann. DvK had the privilege of hearing Bachmann moderate a symposium featuring the foremost Christian apologist of our day, Ravi Zacharias, at the University of Minnesota 2 years ago. Bachmann combines charm, grace and substance unlike few women in public life. While I came to hear Zacharias make the case for faith, I also found myself mesmerized by Bachmann.

Enough fawning. Bookmark Ringu or die.
