I’m just gonna leave this right here.

A new poll finds former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) beating Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) by double digits in the 2016 race for Johnson’s senate seat.

The Marquette University Law School poll released Thursday found that 54 percent of registered voters say they would support Feingold in a 2016 […]

VIDEO: Terrified “Tea Party Patriot” realizes he could lose Obamacare if GOP wins in 2016

There’s huge heaping dose of irony in this story of James Webb, a conservative video blogger who said this week he would likely vote for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton because he was terrified a Republican president would take away the affordable health insurance he now enjoys thanks to ObamaCare.

Watch for yourselves.

It’s […]

The Trolls Are Already Running Amok Over Hillary Clinton

I have a Facebook politician page left over from my campaign for Milwaukee School Board back on 2011. It’s been a quiet backwater since then…a place to repost my Blogging Blue efforts and articles of interest around politics, foreign policy, economy, education, etc. The sort of stuff I rant about around here.

Recently I posted […]

Hillary Clinton is in for 2016

Earlier today former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for president in 2016. In her two minute announcement video (see below) Clinton notably takes the emphasis off herself and the inevitability of her candidacy and instead attempts to portray her run for president as a natural outgrowth of a mass, populist movement.

Here’s […]

Walker Should Be Going to California Instead of Europe

Apparently the governor is trying to strengthen his foreign policy credentials with another trip to Europe.

Where he should be is in drought ridden California. As that state continues to impose water use restrictions and experiments with sea water desalination, Wisconsin is still a safe water haven (well ignoring the DNRs lack of over […]

The GOP will regret pushing Wisconsin constitutional amendment regarding state supreme court chief justice position

This excellent post from the blog of Dominique Paul Noth, called Dom’s Domain, is much like the law suit filed recently by Shirley Abrahamson. The current Chief Justice of Wisconsin’s Supreme Court has filed a beautifully planned law suit to the effect that she should remain Chief Justice until her term expires in 2019. Noth’s […]

State Rep. Josh Zepnick to challenge Bob Donovan for 8th Aldermanic seat in 2016

Yesterday I posted an interview with Justin Bielinski, who’s challenging incumbent Alderman Bob Donovan in Milwaukee’s 8th Aldermanic District in 2016. At the time I interviewed Bielinski, there had been some rumors Democratic State Rep. Josh Zepnick was pondering entering the race, and sure enough on Monday Zepnick announced he will challenge Ald. Donovan in […]

Justin Bielinski: The Blogging Blue interview

It’s no secret Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan is running for mayor. Donovan, who’s done little to distinguish himself as an elected official in the 15 years since he was first elected to represent Milwaukee’s 8th, has announced he’s not only running for Mayor of Milwaukee, but he’s also going to seek reelection to his […]
