Untruth in labeling

If a blog is called Dump Mark Olson, one would expect it would be about dumping Rep. Mark Olson (R-Big Lake). But have you noticed that the Dump Mark Olson blog spends more time smearing Personal Rapid Transit and its supporters than it smears Olson?

In recent weeks, Olson has been the main subject in only a small handful of posts. Minnesota anti-PRT propagandist Ken Avidor has been spending the bulk of his time bashing proposed PRT advanced transit technology instead. Most of the PRT supporters being smeared don't even live in Minnesota, let alone in Olson's District 16-B.

"PRT Is a Joke" is a Joke! supports replacing Olson with a liberal, of course; we support Democratic victories everywhere, even those who don't support PRT (this country has too many bigger fish to fry to focus on one narrow issue, like !!!!!! does)! But the Dump Mark Olson smear-blog isn't really part of the effort to help make sure the Dumping happens. Mr. !!!!!! only cares about his imaginary "PRT scam," he has dropped substantive discussion of any important issues that 16-B voters care about.

If I were 16-B candidate Jim Huhtala (DFL-Clear Lake), I would send !!! a strongly-worded letter.

Nattering Ken Avidor of negativism
