consultants are sandburs

MPP looking at Cantor's primary election loss.

Recent posts at MPP seem less in agreement than asking, "Huh?" and "What progressive end might be an outcome?"

Of the latter kind, this. Headlined, "Labeling Kline and Paulsen as out of touch." And that pair is out of touch. Constituencies in each distract are broader than health insurer, mining, and other medium to large business corporations, which are served constituents.

Of interest, reader help welcome, what have either Kline or Paulsen done for small business, beyond talking the talk, and schmoozing Chambers of Commerce with speeches or fundraiser appearances? Burns wrote:

Rep. John Kline (R-MN) practically revels in maintaining an aloof distance from, and even an almost contemptuous attitude toward, his constituents. (The ones that aren’t millionaires, that is.) And while Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN) perhaps is spending some time here, if that‘s so, I never see it noted in the paper or anything. Even if he is, the perception could well be that he isn’t, because the guy is basically an ambulatory no-charisma zone.

Same author, here. Both items are part of some of the better writing on the site.
