Jim Hagedorn, who is running against 1st District Congressman Tim Walz, would like to think of people who demand strong characters of their potential elected officials as “politically correct liberals.” That’s a direct quote from Hagedorn’s pathetic attempt at an apology to such groups as women, American Indians, homosexuals and to our president, for his writings he characterizes as satire.

He goes on to say ...”the rather worn and tired Democrat tactic of personal destruction and demonization is designed to deflect attention from the serious problems confronting our nation and the failed big government record of President Barack Obama and devoted liberal followers like incumbent DFL Congressman Tim Walz.”

Is it not an engaged citizen’s duty to know who they are electing to solve the serious problems that are confronting our nation?

Someone who spews this kind of hatred has no business, in my opinion, holding public office, let alone attempting to solve the nation’s serious problems.

The following is just a handful of quotes from Hagedorn’s “satire”:

Hagedorn referred to Washington Democratic Sens. Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray as “undeserving bimbos in tennis shoes.”

Former Bush White House counsel Harriet Miers, he wrote in 2005, had been nominated “to fill the bra of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.”

He referred to Nevada as a land of “nuclear waste and thankless Indians.”

This is not the voice of anyone fit to lead the 1st District of Minnesota.
