Actually, I appreciate her honest expression of her opinion

Melissa Hortman is a DFLliberal politician. At least she's honest about it:
The DFL's leader in the state House of Representatives is not apologizing for a crack about white men during a floor speech that led at least one Republican colleague to demand on Tuesday she resign from her leadership post.

"I hate to break up the 100 percent white male card game in the retiring room, but I think this is an important debate," House Minority Leader Melissa Hortman of Brooklyn Park said during a House session Monday evening.

Hortman then praised several speeches by female colleagues, including several women of color, that some members missed as they relaxed in the lounge-style room reserved for members just off the House floor.
Of course it was a cheap shot. It also reflects precisely why Hortman and her pals in the DFL are now a minority and why, outside of places like Brooklyn Park, people who share Hortman's views have difficulty getting elected.

Keep talking, Rep. Hortman. Tell us all about your world view. Shout it from the housetops. Fill thy horn with bile.

Ironically, I think the bill they were debating ought to go down for a simple reason; if you have prosecutors who aren't willing to impose the penalties already in the law--I'm pretty sure blocking I-35 breaks a few of them--increasing penalties to the perpetrators doesn't help. It just provides another club liberal prosecutors can use against conservatives.

What we need to do is put things together so the case against liberal prosecutors is too obvious to ignore. MLK tactics, really.
