Andy Aplikowski has resurrected archival material from the Kennedy vs. the Machine blog, which was the precursor of the now defunct and much missed Truth vs. the Machine blog. Andy, Gary Miller, Bogus Doug and Learned Foot were just some of the key Minnesota bloggers who graced KvM and it's likely that what they documented during the 2006 campaign will again prove useful.
It also raises a question I've been thinking about in recent days. Amy Klobuchar, our now senior senator, is one of the emptiest suits I've ever seen. Klobuchar has mad skills for touchy-feely photo opportunity causes -- she did a masterful job exploiting a tragedy involving a faulty pool drain that caused a fatal injury to a young girl a few years back, and she's your go-to person whenever lead poisoning needs to be denounced -- but has been an absolute cipher otherwise. Klobuchar would make a pretty good consumer reporter for WCCO television, but we really need a much better senator representing this state.
But who should be the nominee for the Republicans? I'm curious what you think about it. Drop a note in the comments section with your thoughts.
