Wannabe Congresscritter Will Go To Washington To Stop Evolution Being Shoved Down Children’s Throats

Up here in Minnesota, this tundra-dwelling portion of yr Wonkette has to deal with the double indignity of snow STILL being on the ground even as congressional endorsement balloting begins. It’s two terrible tastes that taste terrible together. This weekend, Minnesota saw the GOP hurl forward Aaron Miller, a fine upstanding young military vet, to challenge Democratic incumbent Tim Walz. Why does Miller care so much about getting to Washington? So his spawn won’t ever be forced to learn how science works, basically. He also called for more religious freedoms. He repeated his story about his daughter returning home from school because evolution was being taught in her class. He said the teacher admitted to not believing in the scientific theory to his daughter but told her that the government forced him to teach the lesson. “We should decide what is taught in our schools, not Washington D.C.,” Miller said.

Rep. Tim Walz Dominates Al Franken, Michele Bachmann In Epic Nice Time Hotdish Showdown

In a rare diplay of bipartisanship, members of the Minnesota congressional delegation came together Wednesday in the spirit of friendly competition (and knowing that not showing up would be noticed and talked about, which may be the far greater motivation for a Midwesterner) for Sen. Al Franken’s fourth annual hotdish cook-off. The press release says Franken “started the friendly ‘Hotdish Off’ as a way to bring the delegation together and celebrate a Minnesota culinary tradition,” although we can’t altogether discount the possibility that it is actually a method of gathering intelligence for his lizard-people overlords. Did they explain what this “Hotdish” is? They did not. The big winner, for the second year in a row, was Rep. Tim Walz with his “Turkey Trot Tater Tot Hotdish,” with Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s “‘It’s So Cold My Hotdish Froze’ Dessert Hotdish” and Rep. John Kline’s “Morning ‘Hot Chow’ Hotdish” tied for second. Franken’s website has photos of the event and copies of all the participants’ recipes, for any of you wishing to add a touch of authenticity to your big St. Olaf’s Day party. Read more on Rep.
