“Get your Seifert stickers off and your Emmer stickers on,” Seifert said.

    I get the sense Seifert secretly thinks Emmer is a nut, but was happy to let him run wild on the House floor the last few years because he was attacking DFLers most of the time, which helped to polarize the climate and keep his caucus unified.

    You lie down with dogs, you get fleas. Enjoy your retirement, Marty.
