Sleepy campaign season becomes silly

As I've written before, this election cycle has been a bit sleepy in Minnesota. But the sleepy campaign season has now turned into one of the silliest campaign seasons I have ever seen. I wrote less blog posts than I expected this week because the material being pushed by campaigns was just ridiculous. This week, U.S. Senator Al Franken apologized for a 2012 video which showed him "using orange traffic cones to mimic breasts." Yep, it's officially silly season. 

I've resisted blogging about most of the ridiculousness of the campaign cycle this year, but I no longer can stop from commenting.  So, please check back for a few posts over the coming days, for there is too much silly to fit in one post.
