It's all over Twitter ... or, somewhat over a small portion of Twitter, at any rate: Senator Al Franken (D-MN) has started up a Minnesota-delegation hot dish competition. The contest will see Senator Amy Klobuchar (D) and Representatives Tim Walz (D), Betty McCollum (D), Keith Ellison (D), and Michele Bachmann (R) competing to submit the best recipe for the state's signature comfort food. And if you're not familiar with hot dish, substitute the word casserole and you're on the same page. Add tater tots, and you're really in the zone.
Cute, yes? Naturally, the commenters over on The Hill are having none of it:
"Just another diversion from Dem failure," writes the world-weary but thoughtful commenter known as Cowboy.
Not if Michele Bachmann wins, it isn't.
