6th District Republicans Forum - How Far Right Can You Go?

Congressional Candidates Strut Conservative Credentials

Click here to download or listen to podcast summary of forum & commentary

There are four Republican candidates running to replace Republican Mark Kennedy who is running for the U.S. Senate. Those candidates are Minnesota House members Jim Knoblach and Phil Krinkie, Minnesota Senate member Michele Bachmann and first-time candidate Jay Esmay. At a recent candidates forum, each of them tried to impress several hundred Republicans with their conservative credentials.

Their differences on the issues were only slight. All four plan to abide by the Republican endorsement. They share similar views on illegal immigration, social security, and tax cuts. Where they really differ is their depth of knowledge. Listen and find out why Peter suggests one of the candidates should "focus more on state politics than trying to run for federal office."

We also do some fact checking on what each of the candidates said. Are there more IRS employees than there are people in the U.S. Army? Is Prince William Sound now "better" than it was before the Exxon Valdez oil spill? Listen as we separate fact from fiction.

A belated written thank you to Republican SD 51 chair Andy Aplikowski for organizing the event which was sponsored by the Taxpayers League. Our apologies for not including that earlier.

Are you going to post about your lawsuit against the Minnesota Democrats Exposed blog? Everyone else seems to be doing so.

What say you to the charge that there is no merit to the suit itself, but that your goal is simply to force an anonymous blogger to give up his identity? That this is, essentially, a SLAPP suit?

Hey Bobby,
You may remember this line rom the Bush administration over and over, "we don't comment on an ongoing investigation."

Peter and Mike, don't like the jagoffs bait you.

Bait for what? Telling everyone what they are trying to do to distroy anonymity in reporting?

Liberals have tried it before, and failed. this will be no diffrent.

MDE currently reports 27 posts on the subject. The silence from IMP is so loud I can't hear anything else they are saying.

If Michael Brodkorb/MDE is correct in his story about this lawsuit, it doesn't make much sense to me. After all, he already exposed himself, by posting to the blog from Michael Brodkorb's email account.

Again - IF MDE is accurate in his facts, I don't understand why you don't contact him directly to cease and desist posting copyrighted material. That's generally the way it's done.
