The "Miss me yet?" billboard story we told you about last week has now made it possible for Wyoming, Minn., Mayor Sheldon Anderson, a Republican, to get his 15 minutes of fame thanks to MSNBC -- and some free campaign advertising in his bid to unseat state DFL Rep. Jeremy Kalin.
Anderson says the billboard is a reflection of the unhappiness felt by some Twin Cities business owners with how Washington is handling the economy. Since George W. Bush presided over the nation's housing and banking sector implosions and spent two terms burying Bill Clinton's federal surplus under a mountain of red ink, the interviewer wants to know if the billboard is actually some kind of joke. Oh no, Anderson says, the billboard's message is quite serious.
