Jessie Read for Waukesha County Clerk

One year ago today, I interviewed Jessie Read, Democratic candidate for Waukesha County Clerk (click here to read the interview). I remember feeling downright giddy at the possibility of trading in Kathy Nickolaus for a county clerk who was competent and trustworthy. And I’m not the only one; Waukesha County residents, both Democrat and Republican, […]

Romney Assails His Own Tax Plan as Garbage In!

Any number of times over the three Presidential debates, President Obama and Mr. Romney faced off over the potential effects of the Romney tax plan on the American economy and the Federal Deficit. The President has been quoting data saying that the Romney tax plan would increase the federal deficit by $5 trillion. Of course […]

Tommy Thompson’s C.R. Bard connection

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Thompson’s post-public service history as a fat-cat Washington, D.C. lobbyist is well-documented.

Mitt Romney’s Tax Form Hypocrisy

I know this was a hot topic quite a while ago…but I don’t know why it eventually fell off the radar…or why the media is giving Mr. Romney a pass on releasing so few tax returns.

But he essentially released two carefully considered and carefully massaged returns that were certainly prepared with his campaign […]

Reprise: Voting Law Changes for November 6th.

If you didn’t avail yourself of the Wisconsin early voting period and intend to vote this Tuesday November 6th like I am…you might want to review a few items that have changed since 2008…assuming you only vote in Presidential elections! (btw: if you want to see my original post on this, click here!)

Memo to the New York Times

Just a quick reminder that any story about a Mitt Romney/Glenn Beck Mormo-bromance should take note of the Beelzebubian Becks activist accomplishments, most notably as an inspiration to Byron Williams and his homicidal commando road trip fantasies, and the sick, vile, foul and twisted terrorizing of almost 80 year old Francis Fox Piven.

Stay classy […]
