Having listened to all of the rhetoric these days about politics and the upcoming elections, I have to ask, why do Dems and liberals have to lie in order to get elected? Take Nolan's ridiculous ads about Mr. Mills. Stewart Mills has said, "That to be called a deadbeat is personally offensive." If you are going to quote someone, at least get it right or shut up. Then there are the ads about his wealth. Nolan tries to paint Mills as an elitist millionaire who was born to money and at the same time ignoring the fact that the governor is a billionaire. At least Mr. Mills worked from 14 on while Dayton never did. And from what I read, Nolan is worth about $1.5 million, with a house in Minnesota, and a condo in Florida! Then there is the ignorant ad worrying about Mr. Mills hair. Really? Someone seems to forget about John Edwards' $400 haircut. Maybe Nolan and his buddies could focus more on state growth instead of taxing us to death and more welfare!
