Will Clint Bunsen runaway to California to relive his youth? Will Viola Tors take over the 4th of July committee? And what is up with Art and the Governor?

I loved this new installment of Lake Wobegon and all its characters. Just what the doctor ordered for the middle of winter. From the normal lives of the Norweigan Lutherans to the nuttiness of Clint's new flame, it made me laugh out loud. A lot of it is predictable, but still great fun. The scene near the end with the Governor and Miss Liberty on CNN is a hoot; made me think of a few other politicians. Garrison always throughs a few curves into his town of miserably normal people who are just trying to get through their lives. I love the little subplots and power plays between all the people who think they know better, when in fact they don't.
