Senator Scott Brown recently gave a speech and drew some laughs…
See the republican presidential field was not being laughed with, they were being laughed at. Even their own party knows that how crazy these four stooges are. So that being said, if you want a day filled with comedy, your in luck!
Though we’re still three weeks away from our next meeting, I wanted to take a minute to let you all know that we will have a very special guest at our March meeting of Drinking Liberally.
We’ll be joined by Democratic State Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, one of the brave “Wisconsin 14” who left Wisconsin to fight Gov. Scott Walker’s attack on collective bargaining rights for public employees last year. As you may know, Sen. Vinehout has declared herself as a candidate in the Democratic primary election, with the winner of that primary facing Gov. Walker in his recall election.
I’m thrilled to have Sen. Vinehout joining us, and I hope you’ll join us as well. I know Sen. Vinehout looks forward to having the opportunity to meet and talk with us, so I hope you’ll join us.
Here are the details for our March meeting:
Date: Monday, March 19, 2012 Time: 7:00 p.m. Location: Transfer Pizzeria & Cafe, 101 W. Mitchell Street in Milwaukee
In 2010 and 2011 Blogging Blue raised money to help elect Democrats (and in the case of 2011, recall Republicans), and this year we want to help Democrats regain the majority in the State Senate, help flip Congress back to Democratic control, and take back the State Assembly.
This year Blogging Blue’s Twelve in ’12 has set a goal of raising $1,500 to help elect great Democratic candidates here in Wisconsin.
Here are our Twelve in ’12, the candidates we’re supporting – and who we hope you’ll support too:
Rob Zerban – challenging incumbent Republican Rep. Paul Ryan in the 1st Congressional district
Tammy Baldwin – running for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Sen. Herb Kohl’s retirement
Lori Compas – running in the recall election against State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald in the 13th Senate district
Donna Seidel – running in the recall election against Republican State Sen. Pam Galloway (despite Galloway’s resignation)
Pat Kreitlow – challenging incumbent Republican Rep. “Struggling” Sean Duffy in the 7th Congressional district
Jamie Wall – challenging incumbent Republican Rep. Reid Ribble in the 8th Congressional district

During the debates in the state assembly over bill SB306, that will add intrusive barriers for women seeking safe and legal abortions, Rep. Kelda Helen Roys proposed an amendment requiring any man seeking a prescription for Viagra to have a cardiac stress test first. Of course this amendment was voted down…but it is actually sound medical advice. Erectile dysfunction is often an indicator of potential cardiac issues in the future. Blood flow restriction is one part of the anatomy can warn of similar restrictions or clogs in other vital organs or arterial systems. Although she was trying to be sarcastic at the time…the Republicans would have science on their side if they’d accepted the amendment.
BTW: WI Rep. Roys is running for the US Congress in Wisconsin’s second CD against WI Rep. Mark Pocan and Dane Co Treas. Dave Worzala to replace Rep. Tammy Baldwin.
