Over at DailyKos, a blogger named "PacNW BlueBerry Girl" has posted a fantastic screed on Karen Minnis and her right-wing gang:
Cut from the mold of Tom DeLay, Minnis has turned the Oregon legislature into an all-out, bare-knuckle brawl. She's hard right, anti-choice, anti-Plan B, anti-gay, anti-civil union, anti-education funding, anti-woman and...surprise...pro-big business. She goes after Democrats as if on a crusade, using her position as House Speaker like a club to inflict the most extreme and petty forms of retribution. The result - good legislation goes down, and the people of Oregon lose.
But wait, there's more:
I think we can all agree that Minnis simply has no respect for the Democratic process, no respect for the legislature, and no respect for the voters. She is on a personal crusade and she pursues it with a vengeance.
Friends - we are in trouble here in Oregon. Minnis is a tyrant and another session with her at the helm will be an unmitigated disaster.
