As many of my loyal readers already know, Republican Minnesota’s favorite punching bag, Coleen Rowley, is headed to Crawford, Texas to protest along side mothers that lost their children in the Iraq war. See the Star Tribune's article here. Of course, this won't be the first time Rowley has campaigned outside of Minnesota's 2nd District, remember her trip to Rochester?
This truly is the single most disgusting act ever in politics. Rowley is trying to gain favor with national Democrats by exploiting the grieving mothers like Cindy Sheehan and State Sen. Becky Lourey. I would hope that all Minnesotans, Republican, Democrat, or independent, see through this charade and call on Rowley stop using Lourey and Sheehan’s tragedy as a tool for political gain. What's next? Michael Moore pitching a tent next to her.
Rowley’s planned field trip caught scorn from Tom Barnard of the KQRS 92 Morning Show this morning around 6:30 AM. Barnard is one of the best DJ in Minnesota and is a good barometer of how the average Minnesotan feels about the issues, not to mention funny as hell. Visit the KQ92 website to download the podcast of the show to listen to Tom in his own words. In short, Rowley is finished.
Update: I didn’t think it was possible, but the Rowley-Crawford issue has become even more sickening. Uber-racist David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the KKK, now stands with Coleen Rowley and Cindy Sheehan because of Sheehan’s stance on Israel. When will Rowley, the Democratic National Committee, and the DFL learn that racism is not tolerated in Minnesota? I renew my call for Minnesotans from all walks of life to demand Rowley cease with any plans to travel to Crawford.
I demand that Rowley answer whether or not she agrees with David Duke on Israel, and whether or not she is anti-Semitic.
