That Gretchen Hoffman is running against Collin Peterson?

by The Big E on February 25, 2012 · 3 comments

First-term Sen. Gretchen Hoffman (R-Vergas) was redistricted with into the same district with Bill Ingebrigtsen (R-Alexandria). She’s decided not to run against Ingebrigtsen. Does that mean we’re rid of her rude and ignorant wackiness?  Nope.  She declared today that she will challenge Collin Peterson (DFL?) for the MN-07 seat (western and northwestern Minnesota).

Who you might ask is Gretchen Hoffman?

Here is a classic tweet that represents everything you need to know about Gretchen Hoffman:

#Sen Goodwin just called people with mental illness- idiots and imbeciles- while debating HHS bill #offensive #mndfl #mnsrc #mnleg
Thu May 19 2011

She deleted that tweet, but why would she do such a thing? Because here’s what Sen. Barb Goodwin (DFL-Columbia Heights) actually said:

This is how far we’ve come: state institutions used to be, they were called, um, ‘institutions for idiots, imbiciles, and the insane.’ And that’s what it said, right on the hospital.

You can understand why Hoffman would delete that tweet. Its incriminating and embarrassing.

The thing is, Gretchen Hoffman is too arrogant to apologize for lying. She had to be forced to do it. Here’s what she tweeted after the Senate Ethics Committee forced her to apologize:

“I am certainly sorry for my own misunderstanding of what you said and how I subsequently handled it.”

But that’s just the beginning …

She’s going to have to run against Lee Byberg, who was the GOP candidate two years ago and I have an impression he never stopped campaigning. Did they not fill her in on how tough a race she entered into?

Both have a similar idea of style, apparently, and both like to make wacky over-the-top factually inaccurate but inflammatory statements, apparently to get attention.

Look at the resemblance:

Colin’s gonna win anyway, so might has well have some wacko repugs to make it entertaining.
