Mark Dayton is taking all the blame for the state shutdown in a new billboard ad campaign.
With his head looking slightly too big for the body it's on, Dayton is shown presenting a series of shutdown-related images in the style of a "Price is Right" girl. The billboards, paid for by conservative agitators Minnesota Majority, make Dayton seem wholly responsible for the fact that state parks and rest areas are closed.
[jump] It's sort of ironic, that the people ignoring the Republican majority in the legislature are literally called "Minnesota Majority." But oh well, the billboards are a pretty snappy way to pin the six-day-old shutdown on Dayton.
Minnesota Majority is accepting donations, if you feel like contributing to keep the billboards up.
