"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)

Honour Running For Governor, Dayton Launches Glass House Attacks Already

Scott Honour announced yesterday that he will be running for Governor as a Republican.

His website is HonourforGovernor.com

You will probably be seeing a lot about him as he has already assembled a top notch staff including many formidable Republican operatives. I will be interviewing him some time soon for the blog when my schedule permits.

And true to his mudslinging form, Mark Dayton is using the propaganda arm of his campaign to launch the first, albeit oh so hypocritical and glass house-esque, attacks.

Source MPR:

Gov. Dayton has said he intends to run for re-election.

Honour’s announcement drew a quick response from the Alliance for a Better Minnesota, an outside group that works to elect Democrats. The group criticized Honour’s background.

“Surprise, surprise the first GOP candidate for MN Governor is a corporate CEO with mega-millions,” ABM wrote on its Facebook page. “He lives in a mansion on Lake Minnetonka. Not surprising: He’s wrong for Minnesota.”

DFL Governor Mark Dayton is worth hundreds of millions so that his campaign would launch this attack is rather bizarre. Also bizarre is that the DFL is firmly behind another multi-million DFLer in the 6th District in Jim Graves who is running against Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

Let’s also not forget that ABM, the Dayton family slush fund, is an astroturf organization funded largely by a handful of millionaires and left leaning special interests. They with the help of other Democrat candidates have spent upwards of $40 or $50 million in the last 2 election cycles to elect Dayton, the DFL majorities in the Legislature, as well as defeat 8th District Congressman Chip Cravaack.

Its also quite juicy that they released such an attack on the day the DFL House & Senate passed their onslaught of billions in new taxes and fees that hit every single Minnesotans, regardless of income bracket.
