"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

6th Congressional District Pledge

Updated: As per an email I got, I have tweaked the verbage of the Pledge. (No offense RepMN) I’ve added the general election, that other candidates support the endorsed one, and an attempt at wording it so that if no one is endorsed at the convention the others will support the ultimate candidate on the general election ballot. Any help from you legal folks would be appreciated.

Republican Minnesota, a new blog and worth the time to read, has a pledge up regarding the 6th CD Republican endorsement.

We, the Republican candidates for the 6th Congressional seat, hereby promise not to challenge, in a primary or general election, the candidate amongst us who is endorsed at the 2006 6th Congressional District Convention, or the ultimate Republican candidate that is on the general election ballot, if one is not decided at the Convention. And we here by pledge to support the candidate endorsed by the district.


Rep. Jim Knoblach


Sen. Michele Bachmann


Rep. Phil Krinkie


Dr. Cheri Yecke


Maj. Jay Esmay (Ret.)

This will be interesting, as I have it from a source that the last one that originated at the 6th CD Convention, was started by one of the candidates. I’ll be having a sitdown with Sen. Bachmann on Thursady, and I will attempt to get her Hancock then.

I’ll do my best to get all 5 on board.
