The Rittenhouse Review is
shilling for US Senate candidate Paul Wellfare… err Wellstone in the Minnesota Senate race. Being a Minnesotan, I feel rather obligated to remind my readers that they can help kick Wellstone out of the Senate by visiting the Norm Coleman for Senate webpage and also making a contribution.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Norm Coleman several times, and he’s an energetic, insightful, and generally all-around nice guy. He was a Democrat who watched as his party embraced anti-growth policies that led him to become a member of the GOP. His record as Mayor of Minnesota’s capitol city of St. Paul proves his credentials as a leader who can get things done.
Paul Wellstone, by comparison, is a shrill, partisan, and embittered crusader who has made a career out of blocking every bill that comes across his desk. He was one of the few in the Senate who voted against welfare reform, and has consistantly voted against pay raises for American servicemen and women. He’s been a radical leftist voice in the wilderness that has done little for Minnesota.
The Rittenhouse Review may think that Wellstone represents them, but for the vast majority of Minnesotans, Wellstone represents the views of the leftist elite that continues to pour vast amounts of money into his campaign. As much as I dislike using this site for candidate advocacy, it’s clear that Minnesotans like myself deserve a Senator who will represent Minnesota, not Hollywood leftists. That’s why I’m voting for Norm Coleman.
