Politicians like Urdahl are counting on you being as shallow as they are. Urdahl ignored all of the legitimate concerns about building a stadium for the Vikings, all of the complications that accompany the serpentine negotiations that result in any public-private partnership, and reduced the dialogue to something you might hear from a drunk at closing time.Souhan was just getting warmed up. Consider this bon mot:
I can respectfully disagree with politicians who take consistent, principled, stands against stadiums. Those like Urdahl who shamelessly pander to the simple-minded people should not be taken seriously. Next time you ask a question about the stadium, Mr. Urdahl, please get help from someone with a better grasp of stadium politics, like, oh, a Kardashian.Way to confront ignorance! Way to speak truth to power, Mr. Souhan! Stirring!
One little problem -- Urdahl voted in favor of the stadium. Just thought you should know.
