I 35 bridge opening - ironic possibility

4 posts in this topic

The other day the I-35W bridge topic came up and we realized IF John McCain were to name Gov. Tim Pawlenty as his running mate AND IF Gov. Pawlenty was accepted by the RNC he would have to immediately campaign 24/7 until election day. He would have to resign his office or take a leave of absence (If that's allowed) until after the presidential election. I know these are two big "IF'S" but in any event would it not make Lt. Gov. Carol Molneau (sp) the Gov. of Minnesota?

In her official position as the Gov. of Minnesota it would be too ironic if she, being fired from her position as the head of MNDOT as the result of the bridge colapse, were to be the state official dedicating the bridge opening a couple months from now. I'm sure there will be a number of politicians at the ceremony and there will be national news media coverage. Most certainly she would have a speech to make as the political leader for the State of Minnesota.

Maybe it will be true: What goes around, comes around.

Now now, that aint nothing to joke about thats a scary thought.

Besides, I think the McCain campaign is useing Pawlenty as a carrot. Dangling him in front of the undeciced's to keep them interested in McCain untill the verry last moment. Of course I'm prbibly wrong. I prefer to veiw it that way then veiw it as were going to get stuck with Molneau.

If T-Paw is McCain's running mate I promise you that the campaign wouldn't miss out on some great press like the bridge dedication. Even if he is out campaigning Pawlenty would be back for the dedication. Its just to good of a PR thing for it to be missed.

Politicans love photo opps at important construction projects. They like to be able to wear a hard hat.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
