The Minnesota Legislature overrode Governor Pawlenty for the very first time yesterday on a $6.6 billion transportation bill. As a result, the six "rogue" Republican members of the House who crossed the aisle to vote with the DFL were stripped of their committee leadership positions earlier today.
Hot damn! That is one classy move, Republicans. How dare anyone defy Dear Leader and vote the way their district wants them to? Where do they get off doing what they think is right for their constituents and the State of Minnesota?
