Quick Hits: Volume X

-It's no secret the election years of 2006 and 2008 have been utterly disastrous for Congressional Republicans. Despite that, Rep. Michele Bachmann has emerged victorious in both election cycles, meaning she'll likely be our Congresswoman here in MN CD6 for as long as she desires. Nevertheless, Bachmann's latest DFL sacrificial lamb opponent, Taxin' Tarryl Clark, believes she can garner enough support by having some big names campaign on her behalf. The latest? Former VP Walter Mondale.

Yeah, nothing enhances electability more than a politician who holds the ignominious accomplishment of losing a statewide election in all 50 states.

-There isn't much (if anything) Tom Emmer could do to lose my support for becoming the next Governor of Minnesota. And I thoroughly enjoyed his initial TV ad. Unfortunately, I'm getting a sense that he's doing little more than speaking in platitudes. Granted, I know that's how the White House's current occupant got elected. But I don't see a Republican in Minnesota being able to turn that trick. That's why I am reallllllly looking forward to the debates. Emmer will be in his element and thus forced to convey his strategy for creating jobs, cutting taxes, etc.

-It's official: Tiger Woods and wife Elin have divorced.

The marriage was described in court documents as "irretrievably broken" with no point in trying to reconcile. Terms of the divorce were not disclosed, except that they will "share parenting" of their two children.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: When....ahem....."adult film stars" say Tiger is in to some freaky stuff, there is no way he could ask the mother of his children to engage in such "activities."

Good point on Cheetah; one might also suggest that she told him that if it's been there, it ain't coming back here--too much nasty stuff can arrive that way.
