According to Tim:
About Pawlenty
"Pawlenty has brought increased accountability to state government, held the line on taxes, improved K-12 education standards and made Minnesota a leader in energy reform. As Governor, he has balanced Minnesota's budget three times without raising taxes, despite facing record budget deficits. Governor Pawlenty's most notable accomplishments include proposing and signing into law significant new benefits for veterans and members of the military; enacting a property tax cap, eliminating the marriage penalty and cutting taxes; toughening the state's education standards; reforming the way teachers are paid through a nation-leading performance pay plan; instituting free-market health care reforms that increase accountability and provide tax credits to encourage the use of health savings accounts; and implementing a plan to Americanize our energy sources by generating 25% of the state's electricity from renewable sources by 2025.
Under Governor Pawlenty's leadership, Minnesota leads the nation in a variety of measures. Minnesota ranks first among states in Fortune 500 companies per capita, first in overall quality of life, first in homeownership, first in percentage of residents with a high school diploma, and first in residents over 25 with a bachelors degree. Minnesota has the highest average ACT scores in the nation and is among the "Healthiest States in America."


Pawlenty is a bullshotter! He had nothing to do with most of the things on his "achievement list"!

What really cracks me up is the part about "is among the "Healthiest States in America." Name one bill of Pawlenty that was directly responsible for increasing the health of MN..

Things would probably be a lot better off if we had less government bureaucrats in Washington. MN is NOT suffering from the lack of senatorial representation. Eveything that is being passed would pass regardless of what person is there representing us.

They both keep draging it on for one. But conveinently when the stupid ass Al Franken is in the lead people say Norm just needs to stop. The story was different when Norm was on top.

Also, most of the left wing nut jobs in this nanny state should be happy with either Norm or Franken. They're pretty much the same just Norm has at least some ethical standards.

The race was close for one reason: Norm was a crook. He was a shoe-in if he had more ethics. He would have mustered-up a vote from me and several people I know. As it turned out,my opinion mattered (as in the race was a couple hundred vote swing). How could someone vote for Norm knowing that he lacks integrity?? I could not. Personally, I voted for the Independent who was a GREAT choice (Dean Barkley).

There are not very many people that I would like to punch in the mouth but Franken is one of them.
