Shooting in the Dark

Spot calls 'em like he sees 'em:
Poor Mitch put up a post today lamenting the problems of the core cities:

The inner cities have their issues. If you’re in Minnesota and reading this, you know about them; you’ve either fled them, are paying for them via your taxes, or are - like me - living among them.

Where does Mitch live, Spotty? The near north side of Minneapolis?

Actually, grasshopper, he lives near Hamline University in St. Paul. But Mitch is so put upon, so besieged by something called "local government aid" that he can't stand it.
Mitch, as has been his practice of late, falls flat on his face.
Actually, that - like pretty much everything Stoop has ever tried to write - is wrong. LGA takes money from the parts of the state that “turn a profit”, and transfer it to the parts that live “beyond their means”.
No need to point out the clear fallacy of this statement. Mitch knows exactly how wrong he is, but being beholden to SaifeNet and the MNGOP talking points he can't talk sense anymore. He gave himself away a few weeks ago. Astute observers know exactly what I am talking about.

Sad really! He used to be the best!
