The Minneapolis DFL mayoral candidates are right out of Looney Tunes' casting department. Each tries to "out-socialist" the other, which more giveaways to the "takers" in the city. They would rather trot out their support for gay marriage instead of tackling the problems that are turning Minneapolis into another Detroit.
