Minnesota DFL Upholds Midwestern Values

Well, you can’t say that the Minnesota delegation to the Democratic convention did anything to hurt the reputation of Midwesterners, although they may have reinforced a couple of stereotypes while in Beantown.

Boston is one of the nation’s most historic cities — and it’s apparently gone largely unseen by members of the Minnesota delegation.
Unlike at other recent national conventions, it seems that most of them spent their time attending campaign training workshops, interest-group caucuses and forums, DFL spokesman Bill Amberg said.
“The stakes are sky-high and people are amazingly focused,” he said. “Half the delegates come back to the hotel, have a beer and go to bed.”

Probably at 8 pm, because Lord knows, those cows ain’t gonna milk themselves.
