*Sigh* Really?!? Really?!?
Large portions of Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke’s jobs plan for Wisconsin appear to be copied directly from the plans of three Democratic candidates who ran for governor in previous election cycles.
Burke’s economic plan “Invest for Success” copies nearly-verbatim sections from the jobs plans of Ward Cammack, who ran [...]
This is what you get when Republicans are allowed to run the government. When Mary Wolf left the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare this year, she wrote a pained letter to the agency’s leadership in both Milwaukee and Madison:
“The decision to leave the BMCW broke my heart,” she wrote. “It came down to the [...]
It’s no secret I’m not a fan of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Putting aside the fact that her politics are terrible, I think she’s been an awful “leader” of the national Democratic Party.
However, we may not have to endure much more of Debbie Wasserman Schultz as DNC Chair, if this report from Buzzfeed [...]
Speaking at a campaign event on Monday, Gov. Scott Walker defended his proposal to require recipients of public benefits to submit to drug testing as being “about compassion.” Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Monday defended his proposal to require drug tests of people seeking unemployment assistance and food stamps by saying it was an act [...]
This has to be the most bizarre press release I’ve ever read, and that’s saying something. Senator Larson, I just checked Politifact.com and saw that they gave you another “false” rating regarding your assessment of the predicted budget shortfall. Is this your honest assessment (which you also reiterated on Wispolitics.com) or are you using a [...]
After agreeing to attend a candidate forum to be held on September 18 at Gateway Technical College, Republican State Senate candidate Van Wanggaard (pictured, right) has now decided not to attend. Presumably Wanggaard is afraid to face both voters and his opponent, ironworker (and all-around great guy) Randy Bryce, because I simply can’t think of [...]
On Tuesday I wrote about Republican Assembly candidate Jacob Dorsey, who in December 2013 posted a tweet referring to gays as “fags” in response to a U.S. Circuit court ruling. At the time I noted Dorsey had apologized but had also protected his Twitter feed from prying eyes, and apparently that was because he had [...]
So this happened on Monday.
Given how hard Republicans have worked against the interests of women (equal pay, right to choose), gays (same sex marriage), the poor (tax cuts for the wealthy, voter ID), it’s amazing to me that they’re still able to win elections.
Then again, if they keep this up, it’s just [...]
In a recent TV ad, Gov. Scott Walker used a ladder to climb out of a hole in the ground (see the image above), and while some have used that ad against Gov. Walker to point out the hole he’s put our state in, some workers have filed an OSHA complaint against Gov. Walker [...]
Back in December 2013 Jacob Dorsey, a Republican challenging incumbent Democratic State Rep. Rep. Deb Kolste in the 44th Assembly district, tweeted out his response to a U.S. Circuit Court’s rejection of Utah’s request to stop same-sex marriages. Here’s the tweet.

After his hateful tweet was publicized, Dorsey issued an apology [...]
