Thanks to this video, voters in Minnesota’s Sixth District will get to see Tarryl Clark expose herself as a far left lefty:

Thanks to Tarryl’s press release, we get a glimpse into Tarryl’s courtship of hate-filled progressives:

I’m Tarryl Clark, and I’m the candidate who will defeat Michele Bachmann on November 2! I’m looking forward to seeing you at Netroots Nation.

Across the country, you, the Netroots, have rallied to send a message that Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s unique brand of divisive rhetoric would not be tolerated. You’ve kept vigilant watch as Congresswoman Bachmann has gone under the white-hot spotlights of the cable talk show circuit again and again. And you’ve called her out: when she called on a conservative crowd to “slit our wrists” and “become blood brothers” in the efforts to defeat health care reform. When she called net neutrality an Obama plot to censor the Internet. When she said the American people needed to be “weaned off” Social Security and Medicare. Her comments aren’t just outrageous or headline grabbing; they’re part of her agenda for America. They tell whose side she’s on, and it’s not ours.

We’re holding her accountable. But our work won’t be done until we bring an end to Congresswoman Bachmann’s agenda by winning this election.

Washington isn’t working for the people of my district, and neither is Michele Bachmann. They deserve better. They deserve a representative to will always be on their side. And that’s exactly where I’ll be.

As the Senator from Central Minnesota, I’ve stood with the people I represent, not the special interests. When insurance companies refused to give consumers the coverage they paid for, I wrote a law to hold them accountable. The insurance companies spent nearly a million dollars to defeat the bill but we fought back. And we won. When banks targeted seniors offering risky reverse mortgages, we empowered seniors to get the facts and take action. When predatory lenders put families at risk, we helped them stay in their homes through the Subprime Borrower Relief Act.

And when Congresswoman Bachmann has flat-out refused to help our area, to rebuild an unsafe bridge, to bring new forms of transit like the Northstar commuter rail, or to invest in our colleges and universities, we stepped up and got it done without her.

I’ve never shied away from the tough fights. And this is the fight of our life. For the past four years, the people of the 6th have had a representative who fights every day for a personal agenda that benefits the special interests, who has left them behind as she travels the country speaking at Tea Party rallies. And they’ve had enough. They’re ready for new leadership who will fight for them.

But to get the job done, I need you. You have been able to shine the spotlight on Congresswoman Bachmann’s controversial, misleading, and flat-out-wrong pronouncements. You have been the voice for what is right: calling on Washington to do more to create jobs, to hold Wall Street accountable, and to make health care work for real Americans.

I want you to be a part of this campaign. I’m looking forward to meeting you at Netroots Nation. I’ll be speaking as part of the closing program on Saturday night; my campaign will be at Booth #303 in the Exhibit Hall; and we’re hosting a party with Lizz Winstead on Saturday night. I hope to see you all there.

This post on the DailyKos shows the roster of radicals that Tarryl wants help from. Check out the guest list:

Saturday night keynote speaker Sen. Al Franken, you’ll hear from…Ed Schultz…Rep. Alan Grayson, Rep. Raul Grijalva…Van Jones, Rich Trumka…Markos Moulitsas, Tarryl Clark [and] Gerald McEntee.

Al Franken isn’t a centrist though I could make a plausible argument that he’s a centrist compared to Rep. Grijalva, Van Jones and Alan Grayson.

Rep. Grijalva represents Arizona’s 7th District. Despite representing a district in Arizona, Rep. Grijalva has also called for a boycott of Arizona.

Rep. Alan Grayson is the whack job who accused Republicans of having a health care plan that calls on people who get ill to “die quickly.” Van Jones is a self-described communist.

Tarryl wants these people to support her. Tarryl wants radical extremists to help her get elected.

People didn’t want to believe that President Obama was a radical based on his radical associations with Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Father Pfleger and Jeremiah Wright. Now that they know he’s a radical, the coalition is crumbling because they’ve got buyer’s remorse.

The good news in MN-06 is that Tarryl is trailing by 9 points with only 5% of likely voters undecided. I’ve said all along that Tarryl faced an uphill fight. I’m more certain of that now than when the campaign started. That’s before talking about the massive warchest that Michele has put together. While Tarryl has started going negative in July, never a good sign, Michele is building a warchest that will overwhelm Tarryl. (The really bad news for Tarryl is that Michele hasn’t really started using that money.)

Rest assured that when Michele starts flooding the airwaves with ads telling the 6th District’s businesses that Tarryl voted repeatedly to raise their taxes and that Tarryl supports the huge new tax increases hidden in the Obamacare bill, Tarryl’s goose will be cooked.

The dirty little secret in St. Cloud is that Tarryl was facing an uphill re-election fight for her senate seat, mostly because she convinced business owners that she was a centrist. By the time John Pederson announced his candidacy, those business owners had lined up solidly behind John.

For all of Tarryl’s happy talk, like her interview with UpTake, it isn’t based in reality. Tarryl’s fighting a good fight but it’s an uphill fight nonetheless.

    Your point is that Clark, unlike Bachmann is out of state courting dubious groups in dubious ways.

    The “unlike Bachmann” part of your thinking needs reexamination.
