Scott Walker’s bald spot is newsworthy?!? Really?!?

Can someone explain to me why Gov. Walker’s bald spot is even something that’s newsworthy? As Gov. Scott Walker was wrapping up his visit Monday with the State Journal editorial board, he joked with cartoonist Phil Hands that Hands draws his ears too big — but said the cartoonist’s portrayal of his bald spot was [...]

Progressive Democrats of America Endorse Rockwood

From my pesky in box…sorry Chris…this almost got lost in the 80 emails I get each day begging for money:

Wauwatosa – The national organization of Progressive Democrats of America has officially endorsed Chris Rockwood’s campaign to become the United States Representative to Wisconsin’s 5th Congressional District.

According to its mission statement, Progressive Democrats [...]

VIDEO: A public servant shares her story of Act 10’s impact on her family

This is a powerful video.

My own thoughts on the impact of Act 10 on public employees are well-documented, but Monologues of Dissent summed up my thoughts perfectly. This is my boat, and the boat of so many other state workers who were barely getting by prior to the “modest concessions” and cuts imposed [...]

Rita Wittwer speaks out about Democratic Party of Wisconsin, 2014 election

On Monday October 13 Rita Wittwer, the wife of former Democratic State Senate candidate Ernie Wittwer, appeared on WORT’s 8 O’clock Buzz to talk about the Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson, the curious circumstances surrounding the recount in the 17th Senate district, as well as her husband’s loss in the Democratic primary in the 17th [...]

Brad Schimel’s cowardice

During a meeting Thursday with the Editorial Board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Republican Attorney General candidate Brad Schimel showed his political cowardice by refusing to directly call his opponent Susan Happ a liar while standing by statements made by his campaign calling Happ a liar.

“I’m not going to accuse her of lying. But [...]

During her interview this week with the Editorial Board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke was asked to name a “couple of admirable traits” about Gov. Scott Walker. Here’s what Burke came up with.


New Mary Burke ad: “Red Barn”

Earlier this week Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke released a brilliant new ad highlighting her record of growing a business and creating jobs, a record that runs in stark contrast to Gov. Scott Walker’s broken job creation promise and his poor record of creating jobs in Wisconsin, in contrast to many of our Midwest neighbors.


Thanks for the memories, Governor Walker. Not.


Scott Walker: “I don’t think the minimum wage serves a purpose”

I’m sure Gov. Scott Walker’s big business benefactors just loooooove this.

There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that if the monied special interests who Gov. Walker serves had their way, we’d revert back to the good old days when workers could be forced to work as many hours as their employer saw fit [...]

Ethics complaint against Susan Happ thrown out

I guess the Republican strategy of throwing all sorts of mud at Democratic Attorney General candidate Susan Happ and seeing what sticks just isn’t going according to plan.

The state agency that regulates the conduct of lawyers has thrown out a complaint against Jefferson County District Attorney Susan Happ, the Democrat running for attorney general.
