Folks, freshman Congressman Tim Walz could use our help. He's not my congressional representative. I don’t have one. Think John Kline.
Tim Walz is the Mankato high school teacher who unseated the oily BushCo foot soldier, Gil Gutknecht, last November. The contrast between Gutknecht and Walz could not be more extreme. For starters, words often applied to Walz include likeable, principled, authentic, integrity, real, accessible. And that overused favorite, “nice.” But I’ve met him. And it’s true. He’s a very nice man. So what, you ask? Click and read on.
Tim Walz is a military veteran and, as already mentioned, he was a school teacher before he ran for Congress. He does not have deep pockets. Neither do I. But we need to help this guy retire his campaign debt from the 2006 election and gird his loins for 2008. As you can well imagine, the Republithugs will be throwing everything they have against him.
I believe with my whole heart that if Tim Walz can establish a beachhead for the 2008 assault, he will win again. And when he does, he will be positioned to continue doing great things for Minnesota and the U.S.
Google him. And then help him out. Today would be nice, since it’s the end of the financial reporting quarter.

I keep asking, “What can we do?” This is one big thing.
