Loooooooong time ago I stopped reading Powerline. First off, it originates from Minnesota, so pretty much any claim to fame of being a Conservative or even Republican website is off the table. Way back when Bush beat the artist formally known as Algore, the Powerline fella's were aghast to discover that their beloved Minnesota had gone against old George; something anyone with half a brain could have told them a year before election day.
In my experience, Minnesotans are a liberal lot who believe anything they read in the newspapers or see on CBS. Pretty much the entire state, hunters and/or not hunters alike, can be categorized by the sobriquet "Fudd", and they'd be damned proud even if they could figure out what it meant.
And FYI: I don't have a Facebook account. Received notice of this story from a link over at Ann Coulters website.
