Remember Minnesota’s Tom Emmer, the dipwad who would be governor? He came a bit too close to it for my comfort, largely because of a local legacy media that was far too gentle to him and far too eager to pass along smears against his DFL opponent (and seriously good guy) Mark Dayton, but even the legacy press couldn’t quite insulate Emmer from the effects of his own actions. (Remember his War on the Waitstaff and the mythical $100,000-a-year waitress? Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about.)
