If U Seek Amy
Wing Ding is done and this years keynote speak-err was Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.
Klobuchar kidded that -- “You are the state that has gained notoriety for picking the country’s presidents. And we are the state, thanks to the great Hubert Humphrey and Walter Mondale, that supply the country with vice presidents.”
That's not funny.
It's funny, plus a relief, that they were never elected President and the scientific community is united in that fact.
Klobuchar continued with a crack about how Iowa’s icon is the State Fair butter cow, while Minnesota’s is a butter princess. “Each of our states have their own idea of royalty. That was just a little Iowa joke.”
Maybe you better leave the comedy to your state's junior Senator, Al Franken.
Besides, we all know why Iowa is so windy -- Minnesota sucks.
According to Klobuchar, the national economy is “on the cusp” of growth, but extremists and obstructionists in the U.S. House are standing in the way.
Cackling that the Senate's big accomplishments this year have been passage of a farm bill and an immigration bill, Klobuchar also crowed Two-thirds of her bills have been bipartisan.
Amy also left out that she voted with the Dummycrat controlled Senate to approve an online sales tax and it is the House that is "obstructing" it.
Per OpenCongress, Klobuchar has sponsored 38 bills with 0 made into law and she has co-sponsored 173 bills with 1 made into law (A bill to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act of 1994) and Klobuchar votes with her party 96% of the time.
