Disgusting

The performance by Sen Geoff Michel and Ron Carey has been condemned as being "racist." I am skeptical of the racism claim, though some of the language Michel and Carey use seem like "code words." Certainly the discussion of "lifestyle" is code. I took the attacks on Madia to be about him being single. 37% of the public is single.

The carpetbagger point is a fair point. But the discussion of "lifestyle" and "not like us" is appealing to the worst in people.

Shame on both Geoff Michel and Ron Carey.

Paying a mortgage does NOT qualify or disqualify one for being in congress. Owning property does not qualify or disqualify one for being in congress. Being married does not qualify or disqualify one for being in congress.

The DFL put together more edited excerpts in a Youtube.



Note that the DFL had no objection to the expressed hostility towards single people.
