Bribe unpaid = failure in ST's world 

Using the headline "Pawlenty education agenda fades", the StarTribune's education writer Norman Draper spins the do-nothing state Senate into a victory. It takes the next-to-last paragraph for the truth to come out.
DFLers' education proposals weren't successful either.
The DFL-controlled Senate "dismissed" anything that didn't give the "schools ... a lot more money than Republicans wanted to give them." That's what passes for leadership in the DFL.

While the Taxpayers League is running ads against Dean Johnson, I'd suggest a couple of whacks on Steve Kelley as well.
