A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Politician of the day: Today's politician moron is the elected senator of the people of the fine state of Minnesota -- don't cha know? Mark Dayton has said that he is skeered of terrorist wackos and so will be moving himself and all of his staff off of Capitol Hill.

So, what is the secret information that has prompted Dayton alone to hightail it out of town?


CBS News Correspondent Bob Orr reports that federal officials said they knew of no new, specific intelligence information that would have prompted Dayton to close his office.

U.S. officials say they "know of no specific intelligence that al Qaeda is targeting Capitol Hill, Washington or any U.S. site, reports Orr. And there is no information that any attack is imminent.


So, who's fault is it that Dayton doesn't feel safe in Washington, D.C.?

Yep, you guessed it: Republicans.


Dayton issued a written statement that complained of inaction by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn.

"On three occasions, I have spoken personally with the Majority Leader and asked him to convene a meeting of all Senators to discuss this situation. I am dismayed, and perplexed, by his unwillingness to meet with us further about the information, which he initially brought to our attention. In the absence of that further discussion, I have made my own decision about my office, as is my responsibility," Dayton said.


What a brave, courageous position taken by one of Minnesota's elected representatives -- a leader and role model for all.
