Last week I noted that Blogging Blue had been named as one of the best state-based political blogs by the Washington Post’s The Fix blog, and so I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that Cognitive Dissidence has been added to that list. Chris and his fellow contributors at Cognitive Dissidence do some great work, [...]
By now you may have heard about the grassroots movement currently underway to return John “Sly” Sylvester to the airwaves after WTDY silenced him last week. “Give Sly The Mic” is an attempt to persuade the powers that be at The Mic 92.1 to give Sly his own show, so that Wisconsin Progressives can continue [...]
I’ll give Fred Dooley credit….he’ll believe anything that comes out of the mouth of a Republican, whether it’s actually based in reality or not.
Not one for fact-checking, Dooley saw fit to attack Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in a recent blog entry, claiming the jobs numbers conjured up by Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s administration were [...]
One, two, three, four, five… Wow! Look at all those chickens!
When it rains, it pours… All over Tom Barrett. The most recent Marquette University Poll showing that Governor Walker has passed Tom Barrett in the race for Governor is all the rage among the Walkerbots on Twitter and the squawkers on the radio. [...]
In a letter to Jonathan Jackson dated 2 October, 1789, John Adams wrote,

In his piece, Simpson blamed Tom Barrett for the cancellation of the Unity Rally, writing the following in an “open letter” to Mayor Barrett: You can not call for unity amongst the [...]
Once again, xoff proves his sagacity…
So what’s the lesson? No one is unbeatable (although Jim Doyle, for one, never lost an election in his llfe.)
It all means nothing. That’s the real point. And it is best illustrated by Bill Proxmire (pictured), who served from 1957-1988 as US Senator from Wisconsin.
Back in the 1950s, [...]
Though I’ve been fairly open in my support for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in tomorrow’s Democratic gubernatorial primary, it’s worth noting that no matter what the results of tomorrow’s primary may be, I’ll support the Democratic gubernatorial nominee.
Whether that candidates is Kathleen Falk, Tom Barrett, Kathleen Vinehout, or Doug LaFollette, I’ll support the Democratic [...]
John "Sly" Sylvester
You’d think he’d focus his vitriol on the real enemy… you know… Scott Walker… Oh well, I guess not.
It’s hard to count the number of people who are only leaving behind the honest recall candidate, Kathleen Falk, for one that’s a hypocritical liar and higher-than-thou campaign expert, Tom Barrett, simply [...]
