Recall Recall Randy?

The Recall Randy folks, dormant for months since a failed attempt to recall the mayor for his endorsment of President Bush, are apparently set to make a reappearance in St. Paul politics tonight.
Their website, which the Scoop noticed had gotten a recent updating, says the Recall Randy supporters are hosting a gathering of "true Democrats" across the street from the Kelly fundraiser featuring Chicago Mayor Richard Daley tonight.
The 5 p.m. gathering will be at 245 Summit Ave., across the street from the James J. Hill House and just a few doors down from the home of Richard and Nancy Nicholson, who are hosting the official 5:50 p.m. Kelly fundraiser. Republicans Gov. Tim Pawlenty and U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman are listed as "special guests" on the invitation.
"Let's all stop looking at the elephant in the middle of the room and pretending that it is not there," says the group's website.
