How far we have come in our executions of progressive MN senators

Wellstone was taken down by a small plane, but now we can just have anonymous people tell unsubstantiated stories and the Democratic caucus does them in.

that's real progress, that is.

1. Wellstone Is One of My Heroes

 

I saw him speak not long before his crash. Very inspiring. You could tell he loved what he was doing. Tragic.

2. I died inside that day

I still believe in my core that he was deliberately killed, to silence him and send a message to any others who thought they should be strong in supporting the rights of the common people against the moneyed elite.

4. I share your feelings

 

We may never know what caused the crash. For sure. I thought at the time it was suspicious.

He had just announced his opposition to the Iraq War. A position that, in a tight election race, was a courageous stand at that time. Your post brings back sad memories.

We need more heroes like that. He was more than a politician. And we need more Republican heroes too. His death was incredibly heart breaking, still is.

3. This is bad.

If we don't start taking the offensive, we're f**ked! Two democratic senators in Texas accused today. The word is out: Dems won't fight.
