Scott Walker had a bad week. Or course he is too self-absorbed to admit or possibly even acknowledge that things are not looking very good for the state of Wisconsin.
The latest jobs numbers are out from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, and they look pretty good…for the Democratic candidate for Governor. From June [...]
Some disappointing news from within the Cheddarsphere, as Lisa Mux of Waukesha Wonk has announced she’s shutting her blog down for good, though it appeares she’ll still be maintaining her presence on Twitter.
Here’s what Lisa wrote regarding her decision to retire from blogging. Unlike many of my fellow progressive activists, I was not jolted [...]
UPDATE: While I had initially referred to those who might “sit out” the 2014 gubernatorial election as a form of protest against the Democratic Party of Wisconsin as morons, it’s been pointed out that my rhetoric was overly harsh and inflammatory.
It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of having a Democratic gubernatorial candidate [...]
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 [...]

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,
There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded [...]
I used to think that only Republicans played self-defeating internal tribal games. I was wrong.
Earlier today, Jeff Simpson over at CogDis wrote about the on then off then on-again “Unity Rally” planned for tomorrow night in Madison.
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 [...]
