While ranting on The Fine Print with Jeff Zeleny about the IRS ‘scandal’, Representative Michelle Bachmann presents a duh moment:
“Over and over and over, the common thread is the Obama administration was too willing to use the government to advance their agenda, their political agenda,” Bachmann tells The Fine Print.
Duh Rep. Bachmann, isn’t [...]
Yeah, not so much… The cover-up story relies on the premise that Obama administration officials pushed the idea of spontaneity in order to obscure the fact that they had missed warnings of planned terrorist attack. It’s plausible that someone was pushing that story for parochial reasons in these email exchanges. Perhaps the CIA put that [...]
On a related note, I’m still banned (it’s been over a year now) from commenting/asking Sebring questions on his Facebook page, and I know I’m not alone in being banned. Apparently Sebring cannot tolerate opinions that dissent from his own, which strikes me as a poor quality for an aspiring elected official to [...]
According to a new report from the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau, Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed rejection of a federally funded expansion of state health programs will cost Wisconsin taxpayers about $50 million per year. The new report from the Legislative Fiscal Bureau immediately became part of the debate over Walker’s budget proposal for Medicaid [...]
Bluecheddar has the lowdown… While some of us were transfixed, hanging on every word either in person or via Wisconsin Eye, others were less than enthralled. A number of Wisconsin representatives appeared to be asleep or using cell phones.

So much for the Republican Party being the party of family values… Republican Mark Sanford has defeated Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District special election. The victory caps a dramatic comeback by the scandal-tinged former governor, whose political career was left for dead four years ago after when he was caught [...]
Welcome to Scott Walker’s version of state government… The man hired to help the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation with its public image resigned late Monday after 27 News made inquiries about income tax and unemployment insurance compensation debts of close to $44,000 he owes the State of Wisconsin.
John Gillespie, who WEDC brought in as [...]
I wish I could say I was surprised…
Rarely has the political payoff for a special interest group been as quick or blatant.
The American Federation for Children, one of the leading advocates for school choice in the country, brags in a recent brochure that it spent more than $325,000 – far more than the [...]
Someone call the waaaaambulance for Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke… Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. lost his court challenge Wednesday over whether he can retain control of the House of Correction in Franklin.
But a shift of control to a superintendent appointed by County Executive Chris Abele could still be on hold [...]
