Scott Walker rejects job & revenue creating Kenosha Hard Rock casino

In a move that seems to be all about his 2016 presidential aspirations and nothing else, Republican Gov. Scott Walker announced yesterday he will reject the Menominee tribe’s proposed Hard Rock Casino in Kenosha. Walker, who is exploring a presidential campaign, put the kibosh on the casino one day before he heads to Iowa, an […]

Legislative Per Diems Versus Minimum Wage

As Zach pointed out earlier, State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and the GOP Assembly members would like to raise their expense per diem from $88 to $137.50. Now I realize it’s been a while since the per diem was last changed and inflation/recession/inflation has taken some purchasing power out of their wallets…or should I say […]

Republican State Rep. Chris Kapenga to submit “right to work” for less legislation

According to a report by Todd Richmond of Bloomberg Businessweek, Republican State Rep.

Another Desperate And Irresponsible Attempt To Smear The GOP

Apparently I am not the only desperate liberal blogger who wants to smear the GOP in their own words…about that grant to UW-Madison to study the sleep habits of fruit flies and mice.

For those of you in Madison…I think you know who you are:

Robin Vos is a petty, spiteful little man

If there is a smaller, more petty, more spiteful human being in Wisconsin than Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, I haven’t met him or her. President Obama’s visit to the University of Wisconsin last month could prove costly.

The new Speaker of the State Assembly says UW’s decision to cancel classes for the President’s visit is […]

Could Robin Vos be Wisconsin’s Eric Cantor?

Last month, former House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost the Republican primary for the seat he held to Dave Brat, a relatively unknown tea party candidate who Cantor outspent by a wide margin. At the time I noted the 2014 election cycle could end up being interesting after all, and here in Wisconsin there’s […]

Justin Moralez can’t have it both ways

Let me set the stage for you all.

According to a reliable source, Republican State Assembly candidate Justin Moralez recently walked into Rollie’s Tap in Cudahy to collect signatures to get his name on the ballot. While attempting to garner some signatures, Moralez regales patrons with stories about how his mother and father are both […]

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on redistricting reform: “no one cares”

Apparently Republican Speaker of the Assembly Robin Vos doesn’t think redistricting reform is worth considering. “Nobody cares,” Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Burlington, finally concluded earlier this week as he tried, repeatedly, to dismiss suggestions by the Wisconsin State Journal Editorial Board that he should convene a public hearing on redistricting reform.

“I hear from newspapers, […]
