Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) has requested a $500,000 earmark for "Minnesota Teen Challenge", an organization that distributes pamphlets urging teens to stay away from the Satanic influences of Harry Potter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Korn. Getting kids to not listen to Korn is a fine thing to do, but it doesn't look like the organization is doing this out of enlightened cultural tastes. And even if they were, the meager hipster points you score by being anti-Korn are swamped by your losses from dissing on Buffy. And then when start dissing on gay people, well, I can't get behind that.
S. 1584 To a person only following expressions of popular culture, it might seem that the United States has moved beyond discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transexuals. But in the workaday world, it's still legal for people to be fired from their jobs for no other reason than than their choice of whom to love. And a dirty not-so-secret secret of labor unions has been their historical practice of excluding gay and lesbian workers from full participation and leadership. ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2009, would make workplace discrimination in hiring and promotions illegal, and would also prohibit discriminatory behavior against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members of American labor unions. If passed, ENDA would bring the law into the 21st Century along with the majority of Americans who have realized what matters at work is what you do, not who you love. Senator Klobuchar has acted progressively by cosponsoring this bill.
To all appearances, Senator Amy Klobuchar is either not reading the bills she's voting on, or she doesn't understand them. Pay attention, Senator Klobuchar! It matters!

No, a relatively obscure senator from Minnesota that is affiliated with the Democratic party has basically no chance of defeating the party's incumbent president in a primary. The odds that she'll win are only slightly better than me being hit by an asteroid and struck by lighting on the same day. Twice.
It doesn't matter how many posts he makes.
He is wasting his time.
Klobuchar sounds like Frau Bluhar from Young Frankenstein.
Just another ugly liberal.
