What follows is a guest blog by the former Communications Director of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. Ed Garvey and Charlie Sykes make a perfect match, since they both are hideous liars.
That Sykes is a liar need not be debated in this space at any length. Just ask the nun who caught him making [...]
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.

Really?!?!? Fun fact: the new rules to get on the ballot as a candidate for Chair of the WI Dem party are more particular than the requirements to get on the ballot for U.S. Senate!
For the record, getting on the ballot as an official candidate for Chair of the Democratic Party of Wiscosnin [...]
This will never stand up to Federal scrutiny, but it still sucks… The Assembly approved, on a bipartisan vote of 68-26, a bill requiring at least two-thirds of the purchases in the state’s FoodShare program to come from a list of state-defined healthy foods, with Republicans arguing that the benefits outweighed the opposition of some [...]
